Badger High School Reviews

Badger has been the only place I have attended for my high school career. We are known to be snobby rich kids on the outside, but that's really not the case at all. Inside you have a majority of middle class families, with a few high class whose parents are highly involved and seem to inevitably grant that title to us. Our student body is loud and proud during sports, we have undeniable amounts of drama, but we always seem to come back together as a sub culture of our own the next week. While there's exceptions like at every school, I've found at least one (if not multiple) teacher in every department that seems to have a student centered teaching style. These teachers really want the best for us students, here. That's not something you find often. The teachers are wholesome, the food is heaven surprisingly, and the classes are hard, yet rewarding. Badger would make a great home to any student trying to end their high school career with more amazing memories than they could remember.

During my 4 years at Badger, my favorite part has been my time on the Cross Country team. Similar to all of Badger sports the people on cross became my family, and have been able to help in our community. Our team goes to the local elderly home 3/4 times during the season and it makes their days when we go, but it also makes our day as well. Overall as a school Badger has many amazing teachers, administrators, coaches, and most importantly our custodial staff. The teachers are always doing their best to help us get ready for college. Whether they are teaching something in class or if they are also a coach, teaching life skills at practice. If I could have changed one thing during my career at Badger, it would have to be trying to get athletes of different sports to hang out more. I love track for that reason because it brings all the fall sports together where you can make more or new friends.
Badger High School is very diverse in the types of classes that are available to take. Badger also has a variety of clubs, sports, and other extracurricular activities for students to participate in. Overall, Badger high school is a great environment, and this school has a lot of passionate and determined faculty to help make the students' high school experience the best 4 years of their life so far.
