The administrative staff at the high school is what costs them a star. They are generally harsh and unforgiving to the students, and occasionally look to get them expelled or suspended. However, the general teaching staff is absolutely amazing. They go above and beyond for their students often forming lasting relationships for the rest of their educational and professional careers. These teachers genuinely care about their students.

Wallenpaupack provides many opportunities for students to be involved in multiple different clubs and activities which creates a diverse group of students within the building. Personally, I've been involved in all different aspects provided by Wallenpaupack: the arts, sports, clubs; I have yet to have a bad experience from one of these groups and continuously learn something new each time I am at one of these events.
The Wallenpaupack Area High School is a very good school that offers a great education and has great staff. However, when it comes to issues with students, the school does not handle situations very well. The Wallenpaupack Area School District does not like negative attention and in the past, administration has turned a blind eye to certain situations to avoid a lawsuit and things like that. Also, favoritism is a little bit of a problem. If you are a well known student and if you are friendly with the administration, it can be very hard to actually get anything more than a warning when you get in trouble. Honestly, no school is perfect and Wallenpaupack has it's great moments, but of course there is always room for improvement.
