Watervliet City School District Reviews

3 reviews
The teachers are nice, but very lenient with assignment due dates. The school is very small, this not allowing for a variety of electives. The students themselves seem uneducated and want to act “gangster”. They would rather be in the streets than further their own lives. The clubs that Watervliet High School offer are slim to none. The four clubs they do offer, are either unorganized or not inclusive to more students.

I graduated in 2015 from Watervliet Jr Sr high school. It was an "ok" six year experience. Authority changed a lot through those years. The dress code was enforced unreasonably, and some teachers lived through students. The days there were pick and choose.
Students are disrespectful and obnoxious. There are a total of about 4 or 5 clubs which are not educational. The food is awful and administrators are useless. Some teachers seem to care about students and their well being which is why I gave them two stars instead of one. Would not recommend this school district to anyone.
