Waukee School District is most defenitly one of the best schools. Although it is huge and there are many students, the staff does everything they can to make relationships with the students and show they care. There are so many different activities and clubs for anything you can think of. The lunches are great too!

I love how innovational and involved Waukee is and the only thing I wish the district would add is an orchestra and more programs for high schoolers in the science and math fields. Great, well run school overall! Wonderful theatre, choir, band, and sports departments. Definitely one of the top public districts in Iowa.
The buildings and facilities are great! They are doing very good at keeping up with the rapidly expanding district. Most of the teachers are amazing and always ready to help you. However, some teachers waste a lot of class time, don't offer help, and are not willing to help you work on your grade.
