  • Reviewed by Former Student on October 30, 2006
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • May not be brand-new but the staff is helpful, all the teachers are fairly nice. Far more education occurs at WHS than at Avery or Caldwell counties and far more get accepted into college from Watauga.
