Waelder Independent School District Reviews

4 reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of Waelder ISD for the entire 13 years of my adolescent education. The atmosphere of a small town always resided within the halls of Waelder which I appreciated, it allowed me to be completely comfortable with my peers and educators. Throughout my career at Waelder, I was lucky enough to be taught by genuinely amazing people, people that saw me from my first day of Kindergarten, to my final walk across the stage to obtain my diploma.

If I could request a change, it would simply be an addition of more clubs and after school activities for the students to enjoy. While the student body is a relatively small number, having diverse groups and clubs would benefit the students, as there would be more opportunities to flourish.

The teachers' at Waelder should be more involved with after school help with the kids that need more improvement instead of trying to get home in a hurry. The administrators could provide more clubs to the school so that kids can stay out trouble and be more involved. Being a senior is very stressful because you feel like you are alone and the work to get into is all on you like applying for college, apply for scholarship, and more. Before I should get to that point where I want to give up, I should have backup from my concealer helping me and guiding me through this journey. You would think just because my school is small the teacher and administrator would have more time for you but, that's not the case here in Waelder Independent school. They focus more on sports. Overall, the teachers' are real good teachers. I will be okay when attending college, I just have to really focus but that goes for anyone that are trying to go to college.
I have been a student at Waelder ISD since Pre-K. I have seen many major positive changes as well as setbacks. Overall, the teachers are very focused on the students due to the low student to teacher ratio.
