Waverly High School Reviews

Waverly High School is an interesting learning environment. The teachers are generally friendly and helpful, however several are politically biased. Political views should have no sway over how someone is graded. Waverly has an incredible music department. Both the vocal and instrumental programs excel at all their competitions and are often invited to special events at the capitol and statewide events. Yet, Waverly’s administration continually underfund both programs. I would love to see more funding going to clubs, sports, and programs who continually excel instead of football. Our counselors are more like administrators, instead of helping students emotionally they instead make everyday life hard for many of our struggling students. They oust transgender students to the sudents homophobic parents, pull students out of their class to investigate outrageous rumors, and are perpetually busy.

I love Waverly. It is a small enough school that you know who everyone is but large enough that there is variety. We have an incredible band, fun sports teams, and an amazing theatre program. This is a great school where kids can feel accepted. The teachers are wonderful and care about the students' futures. I have some personal relationships with teachers that push me out of my comfort zone and help me strive to be my best. This school preapres you not only for college, but also beyond. They encourage you to learn your stengths and talents and use them to persue your goals. I've been going to Waverly since 7th grade and I can't imagine going anywhere else. Go Vikes!
I have been commuting to Waverly since 6th grade. This small town, just outside of Lincoln, offers more than you could imagine. Athletics are a huge part of this supportive community. All parents are welcome to enter their children into athletics at any age. Being exposed to classmates through a sport allows friendships that last a lifetime. The atmosphere surrounding any high school activity, from clubs to sports, continues to leave me speechless. Schooling at Waverly has prepared me for my future college and career. I can confidently say that I have been exposed to all of the classes necessary for my success. We do everything as one and I am beyond grateful to have the opportunity of growing and learning in such a loving community.
