Waverly Community Schools Reviews

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.

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.
It's a good place to be. There are excellent staff there and they do their best to help you. If you work hard and ask for help when you need it, you will succeed. Everyone is kind and helpful there. It's also one of the most diverse schools in the Lansing area. Waverly also celebrates the diversity they are proud of with events such as World Language Week. Waverly also has guest speakers (some of which include one of Ghandi's relatives) come in and talk to the students about their experiences. There are many opportunities at Waverly that help students connect to the real world.
