My time at Webster City High School was unforgettable. When people say that high school is one of the greatest time of your life, they were right! Everything from students, to teachers, and the community really made the whole experience memorable. I can't thank enough for everyone who has been involved in my life to help me be successful today.

I like the teachers they do a good job teaching and helping you learn. There are a variety of clubs you can join as, long as you want to. The people on the groups are nice overall and they treat you as a whole. I think there teaching of math could improve. So that more students receive better test scores and score higher. Webster city does a good job making the course work difficult and teaching you new skills. The faculty is always trying to make improvements and really care about the students.
What I have experienced at Webster City High School is that there are a ton of friendly people. It's very easy to get involved. I am currently a high school senior at WCHS and I have been involved with volleyball, basketball, track, and softball all four years of high school.
