I transferred to Wamego High School in the middle of my freshman year and my experience here has been outstanding! The classmates are nice, the teachers are there for you, and the school is set up to help you succeed. The only issue I have had is that they change their policies every year and as a soon-to-be former student, I would like to see them stick to one policy. When they change the policy it makes the year confusing. Other than that the school is out of this world and I hope to see the school prosper.

Wamego High School has many benefits, they have different electives that you can take to help you choose the career you want to be in. They are starting to have more resources because they did a one-to-one with Mac books. This was by far the best decision they could have made because it helped to broaden the things we could do in school. However, they do not prepare you for college very well and they do not offer classes to help you apply for college and for scholarships. They offer courses you can take online through Highland Community College but they don't do a very good job at advertising this so many students aren't aware we have these programs.
My overall experience with Wamego High is filled with positive memories due to the adverse culture here at Wamego. There is such a large variety of different types of kids that makes every part of this school well rounded. Whether it is the basketball team, band, or scholar's bowl team, you will find people who can connect with you. A major upside to Wamego is the size. With about 100 kids in each class you still have a small classroom vibe with a large school experience. I would for sure pick Wamego over any high school in the nation because I truly did enjoy my time here and I believe it has prepared me for college and any obstacles life may present me.
