Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted (HLWW) Public Schools Reviews

5 reviews

My experience at HLWW has been a very good one. Since we have such a small student body, it's easy to learn everyone's names and what kind of person they are. That's one thing I love about going to school here. A lot of schools have over 300 students in one grade, and they don't know who half of them are. But, at HLWW, we have a little over 300 in our whole high school. I like how I can walk down the halls and know who every person is. In academics, HLWW has some of the most caring teachers you've ever seen. They really want their students to succeed and have a future. In sports, we have coaches that never give up. They don't let a record from the year before stop them from trying to be the best. Our players are also very resilient, they work hard and never give up. Overall, HLWW is a very safe, kind, and fun place to go to school.

Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted High School is a brilliant school for many reasons. It contains a small, close-knit community where everyone knows and cares for each other, including the teachers. I love how involved the teachers are willing to get in order to help students succeed in life. I have never felt unwelcome in this school and it is the best feeling in the world to feel safe in a learning environment. With safe learning environment, caring peers, and a general uplifting atmosphere, this school is one that anyone could go to in order to thrive in life. Being a student of Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted High School since the fifth grade, I feel like home each time I walk through the doors in the morning and I wouldn't trade that feeling for anything.
Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted is the typical rural high school in Minnesota. The small student body makes it easy to develop relationships and connections that last beyond high school. I wouldn't say I looked forward to going to school every day but when compared to other schools this one ranks higher because of the fact that most teachers are very laid back and easy to connect with. The FFA program is bomb and always killing it.
