I was in the Watson Chapel District from the very beginning of my school career, starting with kindergarten. I always loved the atmosphere and the teachers I had. They always seemed to care about the students very very much. Most kids were sad that they had to go to school..But I loved it. Throughout high school I was in the Band. I wasn't very social but that made me become more active with the school and I did make some pretty good friends. The only thing that I would change would have to be how they handle bad behavior. Actually talk with the students and see whats going on, rather than immediately send them home on suspension. ALL IN ALL, Watson Chapel High school and the district itself is very good.

It was an overall good experience to attend Watson Chapel High School. I liked the different classes that were offered for students of different skill levels and of different interests. What I would like to see changed is to implement a class about life outside of the classroom, helping others, and becoming the best "YOU" that you can be.
What I liked about Watson Chapel where some of the teachers never gave up on you and the made sure you would pass. They where always there to help you understand when you couldn’t they didn’t get frustrated. Also the activities they had where always educating in some way they always made it fun and interesting. They made sure we where safe by always knowing what to do if something happens but what I think needs to change is some of he other teachers should stand up for themselves they are there to teach and the students are there to learn
