I really like the teachers in the Waukesha School District! All through high school, and when I was in middle school, I have had some fantastic teachers who have made me really enjoy their classes and look forward to going every day. The classes are also really good, and there are enough elective options to be able to find something that interests you when it comes time, even senior year when you have already taken a lot of them. There are so many opportunities here, and that is something that I really appreciate.

I absolutely love my school! I am a current senior at Waukesha West High School and my overall experience has been amazing. My teachers are always available to help when needed and aren't just looking to be your teacher but your friend as well. The students in my school are very sociable people, even though who are quite people will still try to talk to you. This school is very kind and endearing and is willing to except anyone.
The Waukesha school district doesn’t have a ton of diversity in their students, although there is some. Besides this, (and maybe our minimal snow days even when there’s a blizzard and our not so great cafeteria food) there isn’t much else negative I have to say! Our schools care about our safety and have numerous good teachers and resources for us as students.
