Waukee High School is a great place to learn! The teachers are friendly and kind, and willing to help! Waukee High School gives students the opportunity to be apart of many activities, sports, and even clubs! You can never be bored at Waukee High School! I wish they could add more basic classes, such as Physics, French (world language classes in general), and World History! Waukee is a growing community and it's becoming so hard to find the right classes especially when it's always full! Overall Waukee High School, is an amazing high school!
Review Waukee Community School District
Waukee High School is a wonderful school for opportunities. They offer a wide variety of options for the future. Programs like APEX, and school to work. These programs give real world experience with businesses today. A great school with many things to apply yourself to. Alongside the programs at Waukee High School, the teachers are amazing. They put more effort into their job than any other teachers I've seen. They truly care about their students and want them to succeed in everything they do. Waukee has been the best school in the state of Iowa for pre-pairing kids for college. AP classes are available, which surround the idea of "this is what college is like". Waukee has been a fantastic school to grow up in and has prepared me for my future like no other. The school has amazing facilities with a brand new field house for basketball and volleyball.The scheduling is flexible with blocks off during the day, which also makes it so great.
Waukee Schools offer innovative experiences in the classroom that are technologically interactive, and always unique. Perhaps the best part about Waukee is our APEX and School-To-Work programs, that specialize in preparing students for the future outside of high school. They prepare students to work professionally, and responsibly in a college or business setting. Waukee is a perfect example of hard work and a blending of creative ideas to provide students with a flourishing environment. Always looking for ways to improve, faculty and parents come together to improve the surroundings of the school, along with great before and after school clubs and programs.
