  • Over 100 College Admission Officers Visit WSHS Each YearParent 12/02/2015
    When College Admission Officers from Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, the University of Chicago, and 100's of other colleges and universities are visiting each year to talk to White Station students, that should be the only thing you need to know about the academic rigor of this school. These students are highly prized by these admission officers and that is why they travel all the way to Memphis to sit down with them and convince them to apply to their school. Other schools can claim they are College Prep, White Station is what Colleges WANT!
