I enjoyed seeing how much staff wants to see us thrive and understand coursework. I would like to see Wahoo become more open-minded and diverse, whether that be incorporating new clubs or having a more positive mindset on anything different than the norm

Wahoo High School is small, with around 500 students. Due to the small class sizes, I was able to form close relationships with not only the people in my current class, but with others in different grades as well. Wahoo offers lots of preparation for the future with our College and Career readiness class, Guidance Counselor, and the ability to take college courses junior and senior year. The parents are also very involved and it's a close knit community thanks to our small town.
I fully enjoyed my time at Wahoo High School. The teachers and students were very friendly. WHS was a small High school but, of high quality. Each student were given laptops and/or tablets to complete assignments and do research. The facility was always very clean safe. Lunch was something I had looked forward to everyday. The cooks were very kind and made delicious food. As a student we were very blessed. Teachers had went above and beyond to attend to each student individually and help them pursue higher education. The only complaint I have about this school is that it did not have an abundance of choices in terms of classes. It was very limited in comparison to other schools. With that said, WHS is a great school.
