Wausau School District Reviews

Wausau school district is a welcoming community. The staffs and aids help all their students no mater what the cause is. The staff have given their life’s to make sure that the youth are educated to make the world a better place. Wausau school district has treated me well because all i’ve gotten was good memories from being in this disctict. As a minority (Asian) I’ve been treated as an equal to a Caucasian person. However, something that may need fixing is the bullying policy’s. I feel that there isn’t enough staff to protect the students who are the victims of being bullied. I feel as if the bullies aren’t being punished enough from doing their bad deed. I feel as if the Wausau school district were to focus on trying to prevent bullying, the disctict would be even better.

I have been enrolled in the Wausau School District since PreSchool! For the most part I have enjoyed the majority of my teachers! I have also made some great friends along the way to my successes. There are nice and well kept schools, with great faculty members.
Wausau West has prepared me for college. The teachers are amazing: supportive, challenging, and caring. The staff, especially Mr Kelter has helped make my college app process successful. The school, unfortunately is not very diverse. The majority of student are white, Christian, straight and middle class. This makes it tough for those who do not fit into those categories and prepares none of us for the real and diverse world. We do live in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, but more could be done to expose students to more diversity. Speakers, exchange students, global citizenship opportunities would make a great school even better.
