Waverly High School really shaped me to be the person I am today. I always felt welcomed here no matter my sexuality, religion, race, ethnicity, or likes/dislikes. The teachers have always been very supportive and the learning environment is great. The only thing I would change might be the tolerance some of the administration has for some bullies.

I absolutely love the counseling office. They have been very helpful during my years at Wavo! I also have enjoyed the Peer to Peer class that I participated in during my Junior year.
I liked the diversity and cool learning environment. The school had many resources to help students with school work, counseling, and various after-school programs. I hope they improve preparation for test taking. At times, it felt like test were suddenly upon us with material only just being introduced to the students.
