Waterloo is the most wonderful place for families. Most people here are hardworking, friendly, and kind. My child is thriving and loves this school. There are very few discipline issues and staff members have high expectations for students. All students have opportunities to participate in sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities. WHS is part of the Lauderdale County School District and they currently participate in a 1:1 Chromebook Initiative, which means every student in grades 7-12 has a device provided by the school system. Waterloo is a great small town and the community supports the school. The campus is situated in one of the most beautiful areas on the banks of the Tennessee River. The needs of children are the first priorities of the adults at Waterloo. Teachers and staff here are passionate and dedicated to their students and the community. It's amazing to see how much love is present in this small school.

The school is great if they would get rid of the teacher with domestic violence charges pending. This same teacher is a substitute bus driver that drives very erratic and has almost ran off into a ditch.
There is a large variety of people at Waterloo High School. Throughout the school, you will notice people from areas such as Russia, Egypt, and multiple other countries around the world. A large majority of the students are White or Caucasian, but ethnic diversity is still prevalent, and virtually all of the students are acceptant of this. While there is peer pressure, as in most schools, the level of peer pressure in Waterloo High School is remarkably low, and it has been this way for quite some time. For an overall evaluation of the students, they are all very accepting of one another, and are extremely involved in school activities.
