Waunakee Community School District Reviews

Waunakee High School is a very rigorous school. The classes students take prepare most of them very well for a higher education. The pressure placed on students to perform well can become pretty overwhelming, but the courses are taught well and are meant to be challenging. The environment is safe and the involvement of the principals/administration is great. The principal knows every student by name and is at almost every home sporting event. I enjoyed the past 4 years I attended this school and will definitely remember high school in a positive way because I was a Waunakee Warrior.

A great environment and community to grow up and get support from! All the teachers are excellent, and the care for students is clear. Our athletic program is famous for success, and I have enjoyed the benefits of our music too. The only negative comment I have is that racial diversity is notoriously low.
If space aliens established a community on another planet, it is clear that they settled in the Waunakee school district. Apparently education is very important to space aliens. Thus, with spending that exceeds $12,000 per student, this district excels in languages, sports, extracurricular activities, music and band programs, and other activities that space aliens value. If you have any interest in going to college, this is the district for you. The school district lacks the social problems that come in "urban" districts. The families are intact, everyone works, and there is a high level of parental involvement.
