Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted (HLWW) High School Reviews
At Hlww, I would love to see many more classes available to students every year. I want to see different language options besides Spanish, more honors, AP and CIS classes offered and PSEO supported. In this school, it always feels like they are holding students back from their full potential. I had an extremely smart friend who was pushing to take a higher math class because her current class was too easy and bored her. She kept pushing for it and the only reason she got to take a higher math class is that there was a new student from another school that came and was already enrolled in the more advanced class. This incident has proven that our school is not letting students reach their full potential. I am hoping that something will change and students will be able to accelerate at their own pace.
What I really like about my school is that everyone knows everyone. Some people think that going to a small school isn't very fun, but I like the fact that I know almost every person's name. Another thing I like is that everyone gets along. We don't have any big bullying problems and everyone is genuinely nice to everyone else. I also really love my teachers. They all put in a lot of effort and I really feel like I'm learning something.
I like the teachers and the after school activities that are offered here. I have been in this district for pretty much my whole life and I played volleyball from about 4th grade up until 9th grade. I love volleyball but I wanted to try other activities, so I didn't continue volleyball the following years. I joined FFA in 9th grade, still in FFA, but I am also in student council. I am a peer tour for math. I would go back to this school to do all over again because the teachers support you and try to help you. There isn't that many students so its a fairly small high school. The middle school is attached to the high school as well. There is plenty of activities to do beside you acdemic life at HLWW high school.
