The Wisconsin Rapids School District serves those in the Wisconsin Rapids area. It is quite nice with the updates to the high school, which is where I currently attend. There is a brand new gymnastics room, wrestling room, and food court. I am one who appreciates the arts, and the Performing Arts Center as proven to be very nice. The thing that could use improvement is the bathrooms. There is not enough stalls and most of the time there is a large line where I cannot even get into a stall before passing time is over. Otherwise, I believe the school is very good.

What stood out to me most about my high school, were the teachers. Lincoln has an impressive selection of teachers. Not only did they make the learning amusing, but also did an incredible job teaching the material. Every time I left a classroom, I genuinely felt like I learned something new. And whenever I struggled or was having issues, they were incredibly lenient, understanding, and patient with me. Not to mention, after receiving their help, I knew what I was doing wrong before, and how to properly do anything I was previously struggling with.
Specifically the high school, there is not a comfortable school atmosphere. Students feel underrepresented by the district and school. The high school lacks logical and up to date rules and doesn't allow the students to develop an open mind or sense of individualism. The obvious student hierarchy with staff that almost encourages bullying. Most Advanced Placement and regular courses are not cohesive and lack an organized and steady structure. The Jr. High school seems to have better teaching with a clear purpose and drive to learning while in high school, the learning atmosphere seems muddy and is administered lazily, along with obvious double standards.
