My son graduated from WBHS. The classes he took directly impacted his career choice. WB is indeed a great school.

William Blount is a wonderful school that suffers from underconfidece. The teachers honestly try their hardest, as do most of the students. However, sometimes students get stuck in a rut, believing that they can't do as well as other schools because of the lack of funding. Statistically, however, William Bount is out performing both Maryville and Alcoa city schools in both ACT growth and Advanced Placement test scores. The school also offers various clubs and extracurricular activities, including, but not limited to, Model UN, Scholar's Bowl, Tennis, FBLA, FFA, Soccer, Soft Ball, Key Club Beta Club, GSA, English Honors Society, Student Council, etc. Additionally, William Blount offers an extensive vocational programs for students that are not suited for the college track. This is important because, contrary to popular belief, NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO/IS SUITED TO GO TO COLLEGE. Without vocational training that fits in the modern economy, these students would be behind, not ready for apprenticeships or advanced trainging in their chosen vocational fields. Other local schools ignore this fact. Additionally, William Blount's faculty works thanklessly to give students the best education available despite the lack of resources. (This being said, during the next few years the school will finally be able to phase in a one to one technology program.)

I am a former student and I have to say there's a multitude of problems with this school. They can boast their graduation rates(not that high by the way) all they want but most of the graduates are not college---nor even career---ready yet. Most of them end up taking remedial classes at the local community college and dropping out. Only the Honors or AP students are on the true college track---the "education" everyone else receives is subpar. In fact, most of my peers would complain every time they had to read a single book. Days are spent watching movies and chatting in groups rather than writing essays or solving trig problems. The teachers are underpaid and overworked, burdened with students whom don't care. Why should they? Most of them know they aren't going to university anyways.Certainly, my guidance counselor did not care about my future. I got literally no help with the college application process. He didn't help me with financial aid, looking for scholarships, or anything really. I was originally in a Honors English class and got pulled out due to a rough start. This was in just the first week---I was simply adjusting to HS, but my guidance counselor claimed the class was too "advanced" for me. You see, the essay(s) I wrote were pretty well written(which both he and the teacher acknowledged.) I was only struggling due to a lack of work ethic---not because any of the material was truly that difficult for me to understand.You would think my grades would improve because I was placed in less strenuous, non Honors classes but it made matters worse. It only enabled my underachievement because I was surrounded by fellow underachievers. And why would I need to improve my studying and organizational skills when I didn't require them to succeed? All you had to do was show up in a lot of these classes. So much for academic rigor, eh? I feel sorry for the teachers whom actually cared for their students, like my math teacher in sophomore and junior year. Too bad the vast majority of the students in his class didn't care. He would even hold after-class tutoring sessions and almost nobody showed up.You can tell what WBHS really values: their precious pep rallies and sports teams. They don't care about their students or teachers. More money is spent on sports equipment than basic necessities like textbooks. Want a real education? Go to Maryville.

Improved by leaps and bounds. I'd put them up against any TN school any day.

WBHS is a great schopromethium ol because of it's caring administration and teachers. All work together, with very limited resources, to provide the best educational experience possible for the students. Other nearby schools tout their ACT scores, football championships, promethium boards, etc..., but arrogance is not a lesson children should learn.
