    "This school administration doesn't care about special needs children and don't want the hassle. They are not looking out for their student's best interest. They have and will lie to get rid of students that they don't want to deal with. There is no compassion or passion for our children here. They would rather throw a child away than no what is right and fair. Children shouldn't be punished for their disability! What a pathetic excuse for a school."

    "I am a part of the last graduating class at Watauga High this year and I'll admit I have had quite a number of complaints over the years. At the same time those complaints have a brightside where this includes both impacting and careless teachers, bias and non-bias administration, we have had a fair share of mediocre and excellent coaches in all of the athletic departments, plenty of club opportunites, who is to say someone can't just walk in the side door? but it is a safe school. One major effort I have seen this year would be the way the teachers and administration have handled the budget situation among the students. I really feel that my education hasn't been hindered in anyway when other students in other schools may very well have, and I want to commend them for that and I am very proud to be a pioneer."

    "I find it very humorous in the fact that all the parents acclaim that Watauga is awful, yet the students are in love with it. I for one find that Watauga is the best thing that a high school student could ask for. With a loving faculty, a supportive student body, and overall a school promoting eduaction and character development its GREAT! Watauga focuses on the 3 A's Academics, Athletics and the Arts. All of the 3 A's are promoted at Watauga, from having successful student athletes who keep up their grades and morals on and off the field, to a strong theatre/choral/art department, to a variety of academics classes ranging from AP - Pioneer Academy (A class started to help students who are struggling with school and on the verge of drop out) I am Proud to be a Pioneer"

    "I am a former student and I have to say that this school is awesome! I graduated with a 4.0 grade average and I was still one of the kids that was mislead. They are making improvements like building a new high school so that the hallways are less crowded when classes are let out and they also have a great staff, I don't care what anyone thinks. They have special needs classes and they have a group for kids who will not do any homework, This is Pioneer Academy. These members of the staff have the worst of the worst kids enrolled and I have to admit they do a very fine job. They care about the students because they do not want the kids to drop out. This group was formed in 2000 I believe. The arts department also has great instructors also. I love this school!"
