The Wausau School District cares about the students attending their school first and foremost. They have an administration that cares about all factors that go into making schools successful. They strive for excellence. They don't just go with average, they want to make sure all of the students who go through the Wausau School District become successful once they have completed their K-12 education. This is why I believe the Wausau School District is excellent in not only their representation of their district but of their representation of the meaning of education as a whole.

In my experience I have received excellent tutoring and help within periods where teachers have prep. The teachers are willing to make time both in the morning and after school to assist you in any subject you might need assistance understanding. The counselors are also an excellent resource when looking for jobs or colleges to apply to, they work almost all day behind the scene to look for scholarships that you may fit the criteria or for schools that may have your intended major. The administration staff as works tirelessly to help make the school a safe and inviting place to get students interested in learning. Facilities within the district are always adapting to the outside world as well; for example, Wausau East recently received a grant in which they used the funds to create a television studio within the building and with the studio opened a new class and club for students to take part in.
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.
