The staff at Waukee High School are extremely nice, interactive, supportive, and personal. The students are also extremely nice , collaborative, and everyone is intertwined. The hallways can get cramped during passing periods with people standing in groups or trying to cross paths, but we do have a significant amount of elective choices that other schools do not offer. The high school also offers a surplus of clubs that anyone can join based on their interests. Also, Waukee is energy efficient with the water bottle fillers that are installed throughout the school. Lastly, I believe that everyone supports everyone. All of the sports teams support other sports, even if it is not in their interest. Sports and musical arts also support each other by going to the other's games or performances.

Great overall experience, nice people, easy and nice people to hang with, make your goal and dreams and missions good and fun along the way. No matter what you do, there are people who will always have your back and no matter what happens people will try to get you to reach your goal in the end. Overall great fantastic journey I had and I look forward to seeing my future kids go there and to go through the same process and maybe even easier, haha!
