Wenatchee schools provide a well rounded education however, with the large influx in population the schools need updating. Specifically the High School it clearly hasn't changed in years and is way over populated to accommodate such a large population.

I love my school district everyone is nice and caring all the time! It may get hectic with having an overflow of kids in the high school but our school district manages it well. They cant fix everything but for what is their reach I couldn't ask for anything more.
From elemantary to highschool it has been an alright experience. They do follow the steps of how a school should work but it involves many complications. What I mean is they test things in order to make the school a better place. For example one of their major decisions are changing schedules and adding higher security to the highschool to every student. It can be a good thing or sometimes a bad cause. For example they make students check in with their id's in every class in order to make sure that students are in the class. Many students disliked this option because the highschool is becoming less flexible. There has just been so many changes that people get annoyed and fustrated with ththe changes sometimes and that's including me.
