At Lowpoint Washburn High School, you have tons of opportunities that a larger school wouldn't offer. For example, since we do not have enough people to try out for a sports program, the person automatically makes the team. Even if they aren't the most athletic person out there, they have the ability to improve their skills tremendously! Another great quality about Lowpoint Washburn is that the teachers care so much about their students, and they will stay after school just to help further explain something the student may not completely understand. The faculty here is amazing, they provide great help and they only want to see their students go far in life.

Lowpoint Washburn changed my life. I always participated in sports and activities. I always tried to find something to do and it always turned out great. The faculty is also very excellent. They always will help with home work, even if it's not their class, and help with social issues too. I have been going to this school since kindergarten and I wouldn't change anything for the world. I have made good friends that will last a long time. The school is well kept with maintenance and always clean. I have gotten personal bonds with teachers because they are the ones who are always promoting school spirit. During class games we have sponsors that are teachers and they play the games way harder than any student
LWHS has given me a lot of opportunities to be involved with a variety of activities that I may not have gotten to in a school with a large student body. Another thing that I enjoy is how close I am to my classmates and the relationships with my teachers. It's very easy to make friends here and feel comfortable in the environment. Sometimes I feel like it can be hard to get everybody to show school spirit. Things are also a bit unorganized at times, but overall, I love my school and am thankful for my experiences here.
