The classroom settings is great. The teachers are understanding and want you to succeed. Overall the school settings feels safe and somewhere you can overall enjoy. People are respectful to others and the material in school. The facilities given to us are super nice and helpful we are very privileged for what we receive. There are lots of opportunities for the students to be apart of outside of school such as sports groups, music groups, clubs and others.
Review Waunakee High School
So far in my third year attending Waunakee High School I have enjoyed it. Almost everyone gets along with each other. We have outstanding teachers and very academically strong students. The best part so far has been that we just got an Innovation Center!
Going to highschool at Waunakee High School has been a great experience but also a not so great experience. In the beginning of highschool there were rumors that there was freshman initiation, in which some sophomores took a part in; that was one memory why I wouldn't choose this school again. Other than a few bad experiencse and a lot of drama with friends, I loved my experience at Waunakee High School. They provided a great environment for students and learning; they provided personal student tutors, a writing center and a contact time, where you can sit down with teachers and get help. They provide many clubs and organizations for students to get involved in; which I did, I joined DECA and HERO Club. Along with being a class officer my freshman and sophomore year. My favorite experiences would have to be going to sports events (mostly Friday night lights), going to prom and homecoming and being able to be a part of the Varsity Girls Soccer team, which feels like a second family to me.
