I enjoy my high school. It supports many activities and cares about the success as a student. We even got personal laptops for the year. Decent lunches, friendly teachers, and a hard-working staff.

Overall my experience is average to below average. Our school has been on a probationary period due to students state test scores being so low. This is still an ongoing struggle for the school. I feel that many of the teachers want every student to fit into the "cookie cutter" way that they want to teach. While I understand that they have many students and little time, not every student fits into that mold that they want to teach in and when you are one that doesn't you struggle and you fall through the cracks.
Wahpeton High School has wonderful teachers who have great one on one relationships. Their goal is to learn today and lead tomorrow, which has been very well shown over the past four years that I have attended there. I do wish teacher would have been better about putting in grades faster of on a better schedule also that teachers would make sure that students are given clear instruction as to how to do there assignments.
