Waverly Community Schools is a great community for the students to attend to. The schools are very safe, and everyone is involved in everything. There's always something there for everybody that attends or is involved with the communtiy so no one is left out. The only thing wrong with the district is it's food. The food is starting to get old and not as good anymore since I have been attending the high school for four years. The school should throw a few more options into the mix of the food so the students would always have to go out and buy food, or even skip out on eating the food that they are serving.

Overall Waverly High School can be summed up in one word and that is Diverse. Diversity is a very necessary for change and growth there are many culture shocks that are happening when people further there education at a post secondary institution. Graduating from waverly was the best thing for me. Being around many different types of people helped me to not become bias and narrow minded. Overall Waverly High School is a great school that brings to light it’s vast diversity.
Going to Waverly Community Schools for k-12 was definitely a mind opening experience for me. This school's diversity allowed me to not feel alone or singled out ever. Although the diversity of the school was nice, it triggered some problems with some students and faculty. I feel that the school would be a much better place if these problems were taken more seriously.
