There are quite a few different after school clubs and sports that you can do! It doesn't take much to join a club,but for the sports that you have to try out for, well that's a whole different story. If it's the track team the only thing to worry about, is which events you're going to be put in, but for other sports the popular students are always picked first. always.

Overall, the quality of teachers is great. Such a great environment because of the friendly and knowledgeable teachers. Definitely the best teachers I've experienced in any of the school districts that I've attended. Every teacher knows their responsibilities, and have a good time interacting with the students. I believe all the teachers enjoy the student body in our school, except the few bad kids. But definitely not the worst staff. Not perfect, but the staff and communication skills they offer are by far wonderful. Teachers in this school know how to do things, and how to deliver their teachings into the student's. Whether it be a story, by giving examples, or by doing something hands-on to teach the lesson. Teachers here know how to run things. Couldn't ask for a better faculty staff.
At Waverly the teachers try their bests to teach us by the means of what they are given and have to work with. It's a dual effort on getting through the year together, and you have to put in effort to receive a pretty decent grade. Teachers are knowledgable about the subjects they teach, although some can't communicate what they know as well as others seem to be able to. They try their best to really take the time for one on one learning with all their students, even though some need help more than others. Grading can be somewhat of an issue depending on what kind of work they want to see.
