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.
Waunakee is pretty homogenous, but compared to many other southern Wisconsin high schools it has great academics and a very good athletic reputation. There are obviously still some sub par teachers, but there is very little to complain about when attending Waunakee.
