I enjoy many of the teachers, and while some could improve their teaching environments, it's very evident how much the teachers care for the students. I wish our administration would visit and see the schools and students more, they still do a decent job. I will admit, the student body tends to be cliquey, most are respectable students. They offer many courses from arts to A-P classes, it's a wide range students appreciate choosing from. Our sports programs are nice, but I would love to see different coaching staff that focus on the team aspect, the family aspect, and most of all, the winning aspect. Some of the coaches I just don't see fufilling the needs for their team.

Mauston High was a good school to go to growing up. The classroom sizes were relatively small, so you weren't battling other students for the teacher's attention. The diversity at Mauston is rather limited to mostly white students. While not necessarily a problem, going to a college that values diversity can be a culture shock. Some of the teachers are so genuinely interested in the lives of their students and that makes getting good grades easier. But some of the teachers just don't know how to teach their students. Thus making the class a lot harder than it probably should have been. Mauston didn't do a very good job of preparing me for college but I still managed to make my way through it. Over all, Mauston isn't a bad place to be at.
I loved my experience at Mauston High School. It was a very small high school in comparison to bigger cities, but that's what I loved about it. The teachers really cared about you and wanted you to succeed. Because of the small school size they were able to know everyone by their name and personality, and all the students were able to know each other as well. In addition, a lot of students weren't involved in just one club or one sport, but a multitude of both. Being in several activities at once allowed for more character development and responsibility, especially of time and energy. They also offered a lot of AP and dual credit courses which was beneficial considering the school size. In addition, every year they held a food drive that raised an inconceivable amount of food for our community's food pantry, along with other small activities that helped our community grow. All around, Mauston helped me grow into who I am today.
