    "White Knoll High School is concerned about image, but in a good way. The teachers are dedicated and will stay late or come in early just to help your child. Even special needs students are treated equal and students are quick to defend them if they see less that great treatment. As far as dress code. My son says that dress code changes when teachers aren't looking but if caught it is dealt with. Education is great and the sports program is adding newer sports, like Lacrosse. Very diverse culture and lots of activities to keep students interested."

    "This school is very close-minded and discriminatory. The enforcement of the dress code is awful; "popular", pretty girls & girls whose parents would make a fuss don't get dress coded for revealing clothes but the rest of us MUST be conservative. Teachers turn a blind eye to bullying & self harm amongst students. Students are taught that they only need to aim as high as a technical college. Art programs (save for band) are severely under-funded. There IS a handful of wonderful teachers- funny, flexible, informative, interesting, & absolutely dedicated to the students- but they're so rare in comparison to the teachers that at best half heartedly attempt to teach & blame students for their shortcomings. The math department in particular is downright awful. My current math teacher has had year after year of intelligent students failing her honors class. Parents complain, and nothing is done to address the issue. What I dislike the most is how students who are different are treated. If you don't wear camo and boots or maintain a C average, you're wrong, and fair game for harassment. LGBTQ students in particular have a difficult time with peers, and teachers don't even seem to care."

    "I came on this thread and I thought i click white knolls middle to comment but made a mistake the same exact ing i am reading about white knolls high school is what i was about to say about white knolls middle. Controlling, bullying by students and teachers especially if you have something that stands out like turrets or a disability. I had teachers blatantly lie. If they zone in on your child to remove a too involved parent watch out like an army they're coming. There's too many underhanded things going on. I pulled my child out."

    "This school focuses more on image than anything. Most of these reviews are old and, frankly, outdated. I went there for my Freshman year just last year and was bullied and teased for my Tourette's Syndrome and anxiety disorder and not a single teacher ever said anything, even when I complained. There is too much focus on testing in the entire state and all around there is a lot of room for improvement."

    "I do like the school. Some of the staff act as if they care in front of administration but one on one with the parent is different. Not all but some of the staff I encountered left a lot of doubt as to are they really wanting my child to succeed. I heard one thing and saw another. The other issue I have is the no tolerence for bullying rule. I have yet to see the no tolerence part. I do, however, see the turned blind eye rule. I've seen the "lets remove your child", rule whichn is rediculous because the child being removed is not the problem. You didn't fix the problem only create more victims. These kids and parents aren't given true consequences. They are enabled."
