Going onto my fourth year here at Waxahachie High school, I have honestly had a great high school experience. I feel like getting up in the Years was better and better, feeling as students were given more and more responsibilities but also more freedom. I feel like this School district has fully prepared me for after high school and I’m ready to graduate. There has been some problems, mainly with the teachers. I feel like some of the teachers weren’t able to teach in different ways based on how a kid learns and that can really cause a problem in a classroom. Other then that I have loved my experience here!

Being at Waxahachie Indelendent School District is great. A brand new high school campus filled with ample ways to broaden our minds and skills is way more than anyone could ask for. But, the highschool does have it's down sides. Personally, I feel like the administration is not taking the time to really get to know the students and be involved. Even though there are hundreds of people on campus, I think all of administration should get to know all of the students that attend the school and check up on them every now and then.
