My experience with Wasco High school is very positive. I enjoy the classes that they provide us because they target different interests. The resources here are always provided. I am thankful for this, because I can go to the library after school, to charge, obtain books physically, and get help on Math. I also enjoy the teachers who stay after school, to help individuals, I think its a great way to interact and improve on the areas we struggle in. The school also opportunities at college credits, which is very helpful for the handful of us that are planning to save money for the future. I especially like knowing that I cam enter a clean bathroom, because hygiene is very important, and the bathrooms are very clean. My favorite part of the high school, is having a sense of security wherever I go, because it feels like a safe environment. However, the lunch provided isn't all that great, but it's made up for during breakfast.

Wasco High School has a great school culture. The host rallies often, make student body members have a hands-on approach and partake in keeping the campus safe and clean. What makes its culture special is its several decade-long rivalry with a neighboring school. They do a huge rally in a decorative auditorium, full of skits, video presentations, cheerleading showcases, and a school anthem. It is overall a pleasant environment with several small, but great, benefits.
I honestly did not have any problem in this school It all went well. I did struggle and all but who doesn't. I only had a couple of problems but they had to do with teachers. Some teachers didn't even teach instead they just put in grades how they wanted or if they liked you then they would give you a good grade and if they didn't then that meant that you had to work hard for your grade. This is not towards the school but, I feel like the educational system doesn't care bout our actual education but instead about our grades. It honestly feels like they only care about our grades because I have seen people who don't do anything and still pass because they had a good grade. The " good grade" came from cheating . That's how I feel but my personal experience went well.
