Very caring and thoughtful teachers and staff! Comfortable space for learning and developing. This is a small school so the sense of community here is outstanding.

I grew up in this town and attended the school from 2nd grade all the way through 12th grade. I also happen to be a school administrator with 20 years of experience in schools in Louisiana, Texas, South Korea, and Kuwait. My opinion is that Waskom provides you with a good education that does prepare you for college, trade schools, and military service. That being said I feel Waskom ISD spends far too much money on their athletic programs and not nearly enough on academics and extracurricular activities that are non-athletic. Waskom needs an ROTC program.
This school is the best school I've been to for high school, I went to two others for my junior year and was so happy to be able to come back to Waskom. The teachers here care about every student and try to help as much as possible. There are some minor problems such as slightest bullying and such but other than that I've loved my time here. I'm excited to say I will soon be a Waskom Wildcat graduate!
