The Wapato School District has much to offer! Growing up in this school district since the age of five, I have been able to experience many fond memories. To start off, the diversity is amazing. I have been able to meet many life long friends with contrasting cultures. I have been able to educate myself about all the different cultures that will surely help later in life. Also, the school experience is great! I feel as if I have been able to experience many amazing memories at this school district. The sports, the dances, the clubs are all a giant factor into my excellent high school experience.

I’ve been attending the Wapato School District since I was in the first grade, my mother has been an educator there for nearly twenty years, I’ve had the pleasure of being taught by many wonderful teachers. Yet, it’s not all that grand. The elementary schools and high school are in good condition, the same couldn’t be said about the middle school. The middle school needs to be rebuilt; it looks as if it’s a health hazard with mold, water leakage, old plumbing, and so forth. The need for a new school is drastic. Along with that is, lack of reliable technology, something is always broken and needs refixing only to be broken yet again. The school district needs to invest money in reliable technology for its schools. All in all, these things are minor fixes but, by improving these things will make life much easier for both teachers and students.
At Wapato School District I have always felt unimportant and unsafe. Although the high school is notably much a better and safer place than the other schools in the district, there are lots of things that should be changed. Some of the biggest issues are the staff members, who are completely uninvolved in students success and complete lack of parent involvement. This school district needs a change!
