It was a great school to graduate from! I have learned so much from there. I did not participate in sports but did other extra curricular activities. There were so many different activities to get involved in.

As a previous student at a private Christian school, I have found the change to Willmar Public Schools to be a the best decision I have made. The academics, extra curricular activities, and diverse culture of the school has made it in my opinion better than any private school. Through the high school, I have been able to push myself both academically and physically, discovering my new strengths. The most important part of the Willmar public schools is the music department, the teachers have recognized my talents and have offered my many opportunities to share them in multiple ways.
Overall it's not a bad school. Sometimes teachers aren't the best, for example some are there to be coaches not teachers so they aren't as into the teaching aspect of it. One great thing is the diversity of the school, lots of different religion, and culture and background.
