    "This place is underfunded and essentially treated like a prison. When your suspended from every school in the system, they send you here. It's like being in prison even for the kids that do nothing wrong. The education is abysmal and the administration is too focused on enforcing nit-picking rules about cell phones to provide proper education. The staff is utterly unreasonable as well, you can tell that having every problem child in the nearby city systems has made most teachers entirely intolerant of most students. It has no funding, is utterly overcrowded, and most of the assignments are tantamount to busy work. Avoid this school at any and all cost if you'd like your child to have a future. After being a student here, I went to work as a teacher to see the world from the other side of the desk. I was surprised that the things that made me frustrated as a student are still frustrating as a teacher. Despite efforts made by many teachers to truly educate their children, the staff hinders any real learning in every way with the use of their excessive rule list to punish students for the slightest infractions."

    "William Blount High School (WBHS) does an amazing job educating young people. WBHS teachers are some of the most dedicated teachers I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Despite the lack of financial support from the community, these teachers ensure that their students are taught valuable life-skills and a challenging curriculum to prepare themselves for life after high school. There are nearby city school systems that may have a slightly better academic record, but their students lack the character and life-skills education that is vital for today's teenagers. I strongly encourage parents with school-aged children to bypass the so-called, "college-prep" schools and send your children to the WBHS district. Your children will receive a more well-rounded education from faculty who sincerely care about children, and are teaching for many more reasons than to receive a pay check."

    "The school is severely underfunded. The teachers are tired of it, and therefore do not provide the students the quality education that they deserve. It is not that the teachers are bad, the tools that they are given to work with are not up to par. In one instance, teachers used their own money to purchase net books, but the school would not extend the WiFi network to cover the devices. You do not realize this until your child is knee deep in the school. Do your "homework" now!"

    "Where I live, IS zoned for William Blount. But now my daughter has to go to heritage, which is COMPLETELY wrong. The principal is being unreasonable. I will have to drive 30 minutes there and back to get her to school. It's completely unreasonable, it's NOT okay. I mean, they have houses in my area in the Nearby homes for sale! These administrators is unacceptable! My daughter is having to start all over, from being with people who she's known since kindergarten to people she's never met! There's a girl on the SAME street who's going to William Blount, but my daughter isn't aloud. And my daughter isn't a bad student, she is co captain on her middle school cheerleading team and making all A's in honors alegbra in EIGHTH grade. This has been completely unreasonable."

    "This scholl is ran by the Good Ol'Boy system, from the principal all the way down to the teachers who can't stand kids. I'm sick of thinking that my son has three more years here because I can't afford to pay tuition for him to go to a school that gives kids a fighting chance. I'm surprised it hasn't been shut down."
