What I like about Watertown High school is that the school has many clubs and extracurriculars to take throughout the 4 years of high school. There are not as many electives as clubs/extracurriculars but there is still a lot of things a person can do in this school. For academics, it is pretty well thought out on the type of subjects that are given for each year. The changes that I would like to be made are having multiple improvements on college readiness for both juniors and seniors and how the school is operated by the administration. School culture is not shown very well to students.

School life at Watertown High School has never been steady. The variety of students and teacher in our district is very dispersed. We have many religious, racial and financial need based families in our district that brings different mindsets and thinking to our community.
The teachers try very hard to give the students the best education they can. Due to the low income in the area the school cannot afford the very best. Sports are good overall they provide many different sports. They don't have a lot of clubs but they are very willing to help students create clubs if they desire. The school tries their best even if the students don't realize it.
