Earl Wooster High School was once a great school. However year by year it's quality has been chipped away by mediocrity, a poor administration, and a lack of funding. It was once a bastion of academic excellence, now their IB program is getting smaller and smaller, and the classes are getting less and less challenging. IB classes have become the butt end of a bad joke. The administration that runs the school is incompetent at best. They constantly introduce new schemes to increase attendance which just inconvenience students. These schemes eventually are rendered moot as they are full of loopholes and logical fallacies. The administration often focuses on arbitrary objectives like their no headphones in the hallway rules, not anything that will actually benefit students and their education. Wooster is also very underfunded. Most its resources aren't of this century and they are left in the dust by other Washoe high schools like Reno or Galena.

This school has demonstrated strong qualities that have shaped me into a better person. It’s such a diverse community with many extra curricular activities I can be involved in. Not to mention, their IB Program is a great way to learn how to interact with others and challenges me in terms of academics. Such a wonderful school full of nice people!
Earl Wooster High School might not appear as an amazing school, but it certainly deserves more recognition for it's devoted school culture and great teacher faculty. The teachers are very involved in the school culture and almost all of the teachers go a step beyond just teaching. You will feel welcome in every classroom and you will (somehow) have fun at school. Earl Wooster High School may not be the best sports wise, but all of our sports teams understand the meaning of persistence and pride in what they accomplish. Very good.
