Webo has a truly top notch art program that not only engages students, but pushes them to achieve their best work. The faculty cares about student success and makes them aware of opportunities they might be interested in, then helps out every step of the way to get them where they want to be.
As a student, I can say that Webo is not as great as it could be. There are the good students and athletes that everyone see's, but there is a seedy underground part as well. There is a lot of pills in circulation, a lot of rumors, and a lot of people who will get you drugs or cigarettes almost immediately after school lets out. Many students actually come to school high or on pills. Students don't really take the staff or discipline seriously and make jokes of it. And, personally, I have seen many teachers that lose their temper and go off on students. There are also drugs in the athletics department. Honestly, it's your average inter city school, and not to be mistaken for a rural, untouched and purely good school. I am, again, a student and will be a junior this year.
My family moved to the Western Boone community when I was in 2nd grade and my sister was in 7th grade. I still remember my family meeting with the administrators and feeling very welcome. We checked out two other school districts and Western Boone was the last one my parents looked at before they decided to settle here. I was never heavily involved in the many extracurricular activities Western Boone Schools offers, but I still stayed involved in the community and the school as a student. The administrators are great, teachers are fantastic and caring and they put in so much time and effort. The Western Boone community has become my second family. It's filled with great people, it's a fantastic place to live and the community and school corporation has offered me opportunities to be successful after high school. In fact, they've given me more opportunities than I can count! The best part about it is that the school corporation has gotten even better since I graduated. When I get married and have kids, they most certainly will be attending Western Boone Schools.
I am a parent of a special needs teenager. After struggling in every school he has ever attended, WEBO has been such a breath of fresh air. I feel I can finally trust that my son is being treated fairly and not being bullied. The Teachers, Special Ed staff, Principal, VP and Sports coaches have been helpful, encouraging and a delight to deal with. They truly put the needs of the student first and my son feels that this is the first school where he has felt the teachers actually cared. What a blessing WEBO has been in my son and my family's life.
