My experience at Waggener High School was amazing! The students and staff slowly became a family as we excelled to the next grade together. Being on sport's team offered many opportunities to meet and create new bonds with students as well as coaches. The biomedical program opened my eyes to so many professions within the healthcare field.

My experience as an student at Waggener High School has been fantastic all four years. While attending this school I have gain access to some many opportunities within and outside the community. My sophomore year I got the opportunity to become one of the first ambassadors to represent the school. Then following my junior year I got the opportunity to become the first medical apprentice in the state of Kentucky. Going to this school you will get the opportunity to take career pathway class that will give you a glimpse of what it is like working in a specific career pathway. There are so many opportunities that you can gain from attending my school and joining the St. Matthews community.
Waggener is a school that used to be the main place to be. It was a time of fun. Now the administration has decided that they no longer care about anything. I would like for these people to actually be engaged in their students learning. Also they need to enforce the dress code a lot more!
