West Carroll High School
West Carroll High School has a student population of approximately 400 students from the communities of Savanna, Mt. Carroll and Thomson, Illinois. Students have the opportunity to take a wide variety of classes to facilitate their learning styles and academic goals for the future. AP and Dual Credit classes are part of the diverse curriculum at West Carroll. Currently students have the opportunity to graduate from West Carroll and pick up a maximum of thirty five college credits. In addition the high school offers the opportunity to send students to the AVC center in Elizabeth to sharpen a particular vocational interest. In 2013-14 approximately 50 students took advantage of that opportunity. Pupils have the options of choosing from well over 100 classes in their four years of schooling. Typically 75- 80% of graduates continue their post secondary education either at a junior college or four year university.
In addition to curricular offerings the high school is able to offer students a vast number of extra curricular events. The Thunder quickly developed a reputation for athletic success on the playing field and we hope that continues. Curricular clubs have also had much success with outstanding participation. A State Sweepstake Music trophy has been secured every year of existence for the high school including consecutive state championships the past three years. The West Carroll FFA program is highly esteemed throughout the state and is recognized yearly for its excellence!
We highly encourage all of our students to become involved in the many fun aspects of our West Carroll atmosphere to create lifetime memories.
