Waynesboro Area Senior High School is a small town school where everyone knows everyone. It offers a variety of classes at different levels setting students up for success. Waynesboro also has very caring teachers who want their students to succeed and are willing to help them when needed. If I were to change anything about Waynesboro I would like to see more clubs and activities. Waynesboro has some clubs and activities, but not as many as it once did and by adding more it could encourage students to get more involved.

I try to be very involved at my school and I can attest that the teachers at WASHS are really good at what they do and I have a good relationship with all of the ones I have come into contact with. The involvement I have is in the drama club there and the all school production musicals both are phenomenal experiences for anybody interested in acting or wanting to see the ropes of how all the behind the scene stuff is and do the technical things. In conclusion I love this school with the amazing hardworking teachers, directors, and musical department
Waynesboro Area Senior High School was a very amazing school to attend. Students have very bring dreams and goals for their futures and work very hard to achieve them. We started the saying "Small tow big dreams" because the students work very hard to achieve their dreams. The high school works very hard with the community to raise money for different organizations. Every may, the high school comes together and runs an obstacle race for the Wounded Warriors and 100% of the money made goes to the organization. Every Thursday students race down to the lunch room when it is their time to eat and have "chicken day" we call it the best day of the week. Sports are very important to our school. Our cheerleading team has participated in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade twice and our Gymnastics team is undefeated. In the fall our football stadium is packed with people enjoying the football team. The students and the teachers work very hard and make high school very enjoyable for everyone.
