My experience as a student has been wonderful. If I had the chance to go to a different school I wouldn't take it. I have met so many people, especially friends that may last for a lifetime. Also I have been apart of many clubs, and organizations that are unique here at Waverly. I really like the diverse atmosphere. I get to meet all kinds of people. The only thing I would like to see change is the way the board of education treats our teachers.

Waverly could have been a good school... But the "diversity" here really isnt good. The security guards are useless. And the organizations are all so disorganized! The school is rarely ever clean, and anything new (like furniture or technology) gets broken within a week!
There are a variety of classes you can take at this school. The workload all depends on what you take, I am an honor student so my workload is heavier than others and sometimes it can be a little much. Teachers need to remember we have lives too. Sometimes people can feel required to take a certain class because they are an honor student so if they don't take the "honor" class they will feel not as smart. Sometimes I do wish it would be emphazied more that it doesn't matter all the time about honors and more about what interest you and what you will be comfortable in. Other than that the academics are pretty good.
