North Wasco County School District Reviews

2 reviews
The school district is poor, so I can not criticize too much, but the school environment has led to a consistent stream of new teachers coming in. The constant new teachers are needed because every year we have teachers that leave because there is a better school to teach for; therefore, leaving kids here unable to make connections with the teachers. Also due to lack of teachers, the amount of difficult classes offered for students who strive to achieve more is low. Students wanting to work hard in school have a small selection and most of the difficult classes conflict with other difficult classes, leaving the student with hard decisions between what AP class to take.

My Experience in the North Wasco County School District has been very growth-orientated. The Teachers that I associated with were helpful to me in finding scholarships for me to apply for and tips to help me make the best in my future college experience. Any changes I would recommend would have to do with the food. I would recommend expanding the budget on cafeteria food.
