Waynesville High School should honestly be no one's first choice of school, not that many are fortunate enough to choose where they attend school. The atmosphere the school creates is unpleasant and depressing. People are constantly attempting to create toxic situations, which ends up making everyone else miserable because it's all you hear about. The faculty is extremely disappointing as well, if you're not a popular kid no one cares about you. I've watched so many students get pushed to the side just because a teacher or a coach didn't even recognize them. Overall a very disappointing experience, but it isn't the end of the world. Oh, and the lunches are terrible.

This is the biggest school I’ve attended and that has come with a lot of advantages. Some include, more people to meet, a better education, and a variety of career opportunities. The counselors are very helpful to make sure all the students are happy with their schedules and answer all the questions we have. The administration is very professional too.
The best part of Waynesville is the teachers and community. Whether it be the history department or the theater program, both the teachers and administrators do their best to make sure that all students understand and feel welcome. The environment is very diverse and constantly changing due to the military base Fort Leonard Wood however the programs established by both the locals and military base itself individuals assimilate and get involved easily.
