Waldwick High School Reviews

I love the Waldwick community. The high school is very small yet very supportive. Attending a small school is not only beneficial inside the classroom, but it offers more resources and opportunities outside school as well. Having small classes creates personal and professional relationships between students and teachers. Being a senior at Waldwick high school makes me especially appreciative of the supportive environment, not just of the school itself but of the town as well. Waldwick citizens come together to support and send off the current seniors with activities such as fundraising and a graduation ball, and then welcome the rising seniors. I am so thankful to have been educated in an environment such as Waldwick High School.

Throughout my four years, I found that the Waldwick school community values a sense of family among its administration leaders, teachers, staff, students, and parents. However, there is a sense of comfort that blankets over the school and limits our push to explore new things. Academically, we perform rather poorly compared to other schools in the county. Athletically, our boys’ soccer team is phenomenal. Artistically, our only music teacher is retiring this year.
I have had a rather excellent experience at Waldwick High School. In such a small community the teachers and staff create an environment that makes everyone feel welcome. There are sports and clubs that allow for everyone to be included. One thing that I would change is the variety of courses that Waldwick High School offers. During juniors and senior year, students should be able to take elective courses that are more focused on their future career or interests.
