My experience at Widefield High School will be truly unforgettable! I had the privilege to work with brilliant classmates, encouraging teachers, and outstanding teammates. I can honestly say that I'm so proud to be a Gladiator. However, every school has things that need to be improved on. An improvement Widefield High School needs is more school spirt. Athletes and Mathletes need to support one another in the activities they partake in. With this improvement, it can make the Widefield family a lot stronger.

One thing that I really loved about Widefield is that the teachers are there to help you no matter what. They go in and ask the kids if they want study sessions or if they need extra help. When ever I had a question all my of teachers were willing to help even if they were not in the class. The biggest thing I would change would be the certain rules for passing periods. We have 4 minutes to get from one class to another. It takes longer to get from one side of campus to the other but the halls are also so crowded. The last thing I would change would be the renovation of the school a lot of things are not up to date but it will be nice to see more new and up to date things, but not take out the sentimental structures.
Widefield School District 3 offer opportunities for students to better their academic growth. There is opportunities to partake in different types of classes (ex. Honors, AP, PLTW, STEM, etc). The staff puts in the effort to get to know the students and help in their educational journey.
