I am an alum from Widefield Highschool and I can say without a doubt that WHS is not only a loving community but a family. There is not a single teacher there that wouldn’t take care of not only other staff, but students as well. The admin are so determined to make a positive impact on the building and the student run activities are so broad theres a place for everyone. Gladiator pride!

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.
Since I’ve been in this district, my eyes have been opened to many things. I have learned to meet some great people, and I love all of the staff/faculty at the school! They work their hardest to make sure all of us kids have what we need! I love the diversity at our school and the impact this small little city has on us wsd3 kids! Being down here has changed my whole perspective of living, and I’m so glad I was given this opportunity!
