Watertown-Mayer Public School District Reviews

I think Watertown-Mayer High School has a very great environment, the teaching staff is always happy to help you and they all genuinely care about you. I do not feel out of place there and I feel like I could go up to any teacher in the building with my concerns and they would do everything in their power to help me. I only gave my school 4 stars however because sometimes I feel as though other students with a higher social status lets say takes priority and the students like me who do not always get noticed or who do no stand out do not have any sort of priority, maybe that is just a me thing. I am a more quiet and reserved person so maybe I just do not get noticed or recognized because of that.

I have made lots of experiences attending Watertown-Mayer. Both good and bad experiences. All of the teachers and staff are amazing. They have helped me out with my work in every way possible. When it comes to social experiences, there are lots of terrible experiences. Throughout the years, I have experienced lots of endless drama. Bullying can also be a never ending problem within the school. Otherwise its an outstanding school to attend!
I throughly enjoy Watertown-Mayer High School. We only have 500 students, making it a close-knit community where relationships thrive and last long after graduation. There are limited activities due to the amount of staff, students, & resources available, but all academically eligible kids can participate in any available activity they would like. Our teachers are supported and dedicated to the personal success of every student that enters the doors of WMHS. They are incredibly talented and committed to their jobs as educators and mentors. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to attend such a facility that cultivates greatness with every fiber of its being.
