Wausau School District Reviews

18 reviews
All Categories
The high schools are focused on preparing students for their lives beyond high school. Financial planning classes are required and computer skills are taught throughout their schooling. They are exposed to different types of computer programs and tools, such as IPads and Chromebooks, as well as PCs. They are offered challenging advanced placement classes and classes with dual credit, often getting them ahead earning credits toward degree programs after high school. Youth Apprenticeship teaches them on the job skills for future careers. The only downside to attending schools in the district is their bullying issues and perhaps a need to teach more classes about diversity and the importance of embracing it in the workplace.
Review Wausau School District
Overall, the teachers are very respectful and understandable. By this I mean that teachers can connect with their students and create a safe and comfortable environment for anyone. Teachers are the real support in each child's dreams and the teachers in the Wausau School District does that. The teachers are not jut adults to order us around. No, they are humans and they take the time and care to prepare all of there students to become successful people for the future, whatever the students futures hold. Not only the teacher are great but the system of the schools. Each school has different schedules, classes, and traditions. But change is good. This creates a practice run for the children by being filled with different obstacles and changes that in the future life anyone can relate to. The school district very much prepares the children of the future to become leaders of our country. The school district feels like a home that has a huge family, closer than a community.
I was a student in the Wausau School District ever since I started school. I've gone to two different elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school that is part of the Wausau School District. During these times I've met a lot of people. The best part of being part of the Wausau School District is the teachers. They are great people who are super helpful. They care about the well being of their students and always make sure their students are working hard. The staff is very energetic and always looking for new ways to help the students learn.
