Waunakee Community School District Reviews

9 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Waunakee Community School District
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.
Moving here my freshman year of high school, I couldn't have asked for a better high school to attend. From the very beginning, the guidance counselors have been my second family, from hosting a "new student luncheon," and extra activities to welcome us new kids to the community. They also held a "Freshman First Day," where only freshman and seniors attended to get a tour, talk to seniors, find teachers, lockers, classes, get books, etc.. Overall, it was a very welcoming atmosphere. Now, I maintain a high GPA, take advanced classes, and pursue in Waunakee's image in high honors. Not only is the community welcoming, but the teachers are great too. Not only do they take time other than during the school day to help, but they are confident and helpful in their teachings. I wouldn't have wanted to go to any other high school, for this life- changing experience.
