The teachers care about you as a student, and they push you to be the best if you choose not to do your work than that’s your fault. They are very understanding (most of the time). I played Fieldhockey and softball and was part of the grit group (growing resilience in teens) and it’s a growing program about mental health awareness. I hope to be able to continue having teachers that care through out college. I know college has a lot larger class sizes but knowing that if you fall behind and can still get caught up, or doing extra work to make up that failed test.

Waterville Senior High School really is the best high school in the state. The teachers are great and there are many ways to get extra help if needed. The school offers a nice amount of courses, although I would like to see more science courses available because I love science. Other than that I have never had a problem with the school or anyone in it. The faculty and staff do a great job at making sure all of the students are treated fairly and we are a no bullying zone.
I absolutely loved WSHS! The academics are top notch, the teachers are welcoming and friendly, yet challenging, and it has a great environment!
