Waterford High School Reviews
I like this school. I've had my ups and downs but that's anywhere. I think that the teachers are great and care about you on a personal level. Most of them are always there if you need help or someone to talk to about a personal issue. The students are also nice for the most part. I would change the fact that there aren't more bathrooms for people with disabilities. I feel like sometimes people with disabilities aren't taken into account in the sense that there aren't much things available to make their time at school easier.
Bullying is a HUGE issue at this school. As a sophomore, I have had so much trouble with other students being rude and trying to take advantage of me. And on top of that, the principal does nothing about any of the issues going on, he tries to be the student's friends rather than take initiative and be their authority. Most of the teachers care about the students, however, there are teachers who are only an open ear to their favorite students. Also, because of being such a small school, everyone knows about everyone's business and issues, leading people to be made fun of (because once one person finds out, the rest of the student body finds out shortly after) and have false rumors being spread. I do not recommend Waterford High School if you want to have fun and live life during the four, three, two or even just one year here in Waterford.
The school is very welcoming. The staff is nice and, they assist you when needed. They have accommodated student needs and make sure that everything is running smoothly. I do wish there was more variety of classes, especially those geared to a certain college major or career to expose those interested in the area.
