I enjoyed my high school career at Ware Jr Sr High School. I was very active and involved within the school community. I played two varsity sports, was the Vice President of student council and the National Honors Society. Being involved and balanced academically and socially definitely made me high school experience memorable. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA from taking several honors courses and AP courses.

Ware High School has a mix of good and bad things in the school. Some of the great things about going here is that since it is such a small town and school, there is more one on one time with teachers and staff. Having a small school for that reason is a great thing. Also since it us such a small school the students and staff are like one family. Our school spirit is through the roof you would never guess there is only 58 kids in my graduating class. Some of the negatives and things that I hope one day change at Ware High School is the number of opportunities academic wise. We don't have many options for classes or teachers that a lot of our classes end up being only. Also for our guidance department as a whole to get stronger.
The administration are dumb as dirt and can't do their job well enough to effectively run a school at all. You don't learn at this school you figure out tricks to get by until you are thrown into the real world completely unprepared where you will most likely work a dead end job in this microscopic town. The only thing that gives me hope for this school is the teachers that are inspiring and care about their students. This school desperately needs to offer more extracurricular activities.
