Waukon High School is a good school in general. Some teachers are absolutely amazing and really care for the students education. My favorite teacher is Mrs.Jensen, she truly cares for each student and tries her best to teach them in ways that are comfortable for everyone. I would say that the only thing that needs to be changed in the school is expanding the classes so that they help students more with preparing for college and life outside of their home.

Great school, opportunity to take college classes while going to high school. That is a bonus. Variety of classes offered. Clubs and sports avaliable to all students from freshman to seniors. Teachers are helpful and well educated in all areas of education. It gave me a great start for my future.
I loved that all the teachers were very helpful and would help you out in any way they could for you to succeed. They had a variety of options for sports and clubs. They also had an after school program which would go until 6:30 at night where you could get extra help on homework and studying, hang out, and encouragement to keep trying. Everyone Was really nice and very welcoming when I moved there.
