I have gone to Wausa Public Schools since Preschool and have had a great experience with the teachers, facility, and fellow peers of the school. The teachers are very caring and are always there to help when you need a helping hand. The school has many things to offer to students such as clubs, athletics, and other extracurricular activities, but many of these activities are based on popularity and favoritism.

While I was not personally involved in numerous athletic clubs, I could still see that it was full of committed students that cared about the outcome of the season. The practices were very rigorous, but the students hardly complained because they trusted their coaches to know what was right for the whole team. Choir is a very good extracurricular activity, with most of its members begin committed. Some of the students are in the class because their friend is or they just needed a class to fill the extra spot on their schedule. Play Production at Wausa is taken very seriously and almost the whole student body participates in it. I myself was a member of the play production team during my time at Wausa and I experienced so much during my time on the team. During some practices, our coach would take almost the whole time to teach the members about a life lesson, which showed me that, while he was still the coach and he wanted to have a winning season, he still cared about what happens in the student's lives.
Teachers at Wausa High School are very skilled with what they do. They know the subjects that they are teaching and they are willing to help students who don't understand a certain subject. Sometimes, it is difficult to talk to a teacher that is also involved with coaching a sport and they are not able to stay after school or come before school, but even then the teachers are extremely willing to use their planning periods to help students with the confusing questions or help to understand the subject they are teaching.
