Watertown School District Reviews
The Watertown School District is a district that is always striving to help the students gain the materials and knowledge needed in order to be successful in their lives. As a senior, I feel that the Watertown School District has correctly responded to certain situations to help me feel safe. Although I have never felt unsafe at school, we are in a time where unfortunately school shootings have become more common. If there was a change to be made at our school, it would be that we would have a buzz-in system to help prevent any outside dangers from entering our school. Other than that, I have loved being apart of Watertown and have really enjoyed my journey as a student because of the coaches, teachers, and other students.
My years at Watertown High School has overall been an amazing experience due to the new friendships, clubs, sporting activities, and the teachers. My school has incredible school spirit because so many kids participate in everything. I participated in track, book club, key club (service club), student council, volleyball, and band. The leaders of these activities were amazing and I made tons of new friends getting involved. Watertown High School has many ways to get involved and care about each and every student.
Watertown High School is a place to get your work done, people are not going to move to Watertown South Dakota just to go to high school. It is very safe because of the few people in our community. I know many of the teachers and they know me very well, for the most part my teachers have taught me what I need to know for future education. You can have more one on one time with teachers, when you are in a smaller school. I enjoyed high school and am so excited about going on to pursue a career in psychology.
