I adored the we had traditions like no other school. Our parades we would throw for the spirit of our football team. I liked that fact even though we would loose every year to our rival school we still kept hope of one day beating them. I loved our coyote mascot always being there to hype us up at prep rally's while saying our student created class chant. As a senior ours chant meant so much to me, and if do say so my self is better than other classes haha. "Back the pack that runs with many senior class of 2020." These past 3 years have been the best even though now its has sudden come to an end I'm glad I could make those memories. I'm glad that I got to experience trying new things like rotc, and going on simulated bootcamp trips, repelling off a 80 foot tower 3 times with my friends, going on camping trips with the people that I can call my family. Even though we dont have a traditional prom I feel like everything else has made up for it.

I love the diversity of Wichita Falls High School. There is a lot of different courses to choose from at Wichita Falls high school, which allows you to be more knowledgeable in different subjects. The administration and students are very accepting and genuine, I could not imagine being at a different school. Wichita Falls has many clubs to choose from, any many other opportunities for you to get involved in your school. I have met many different people, which has helped me be more accepting of others culture,religion and even race.
It’s really difficult for me to think of something that needs to change at Wichita Falls Highschool, but if I had to choose one I would probably say the process in which teachers are chosen needs to change. The teachers are very supportive but at times lack giving assignments that prepare one for future success, and giving instructions. Overall my experience has been wonderful at this high school, and I have made so many memorable moments.
I have gone to this school all four years of high school and it has truly been amazing! The staff and administrators only want the best for you. They are truly passionate about helping students learn and succeed. This school is old and has so much character, which makes us appreciate and take pride in our school even more!
