My experience at Waxahachie High School has always been fantastic. I have been apart of the Waxahachie ISD cheer program for 5 years and it has been the best! What I like about Waxahachie High School are the teachers. They always make sure you are okay and make sure you understand the lesson as a whole before moving onto anything else. What I would like to see change is the school lunch just because sometimes it can be cold and no one wants cold food.
The teachers were very nice and I believe they truly cared about us as students. For me, I am a very antisocial person by nature and found it difficult to make friends. But the teachers always checked on me to ensure my mental stability. The classes were fairly challenging, but there was no time that I felt as if I couldn't go to my teacher for help. The dress code policy was a little strict and caused for a lot of students to attend detention. Speaking of detention, I have only gotten a detention ONE time in my entire time being in school. And this was because I had 3 morning tardies the accumulated from the beginning of the school year. I think that rule is a little out dated and should be fixed because the tardies were not my fault. However, all of my other experiences were positive. There was an amazing social atmosphere and encouraged unity.
