Watson Chapel School District Reviews
I loved going to Watson Chapel. The teachers are great at making sure you leave their class with an educated mind. Every time you go to class, it's a new lesson to be learned; a new challenge to fulfill. The clubs were great. We did many activities and had a blast becoming a team. In fact, I was in 5 clubs! The food was great. I loved chicken Tuesdays! That's a tradition for years. All I can say is, if you're not running, you're waiting. If you're waiting, you will most likely be late for class. The football games, the pep rally's, and the fun activities throughout the school year, were amazing! The "wildcats" (school's football team) have the biggest fan base! When you go to a game, you will scream, cry, and cheer because we're all a team. All in all, I loved the experience Watson Chapel gave me. I'm so honored to have been apart of the district.
The uniform policy is ridiculous. The money parents spend on new uniforms a year could be spent on regular clothes that their child could wear anywhere. The carpet is old and smells. The ceiling tiles literally fell out of the ceiling on to people last year and had to be replaced. The cafeteria is small and does not offer any variety of food. It has two lines that both serve the same thing. The principal occasionally goes through students backpacks and takes their phone if it’s in there, even if they weren’t on it. Overall I am very displeased with my experience at this school.
My experience at Watson Chapel has been great! The teachers are all very nice and help you when you need it. They make sure everyone understands the lesson before they move on. Sometimes Chapel gets a bad wrap but overall i love my school and i really wouldn't rather be anywhere else. We do need more school spirit, but that comes from the students.
