Wickenburg high school is an excellent school. The teachers are amazing. They are always trying to help their students in the best way possible. The best quality about Wickenburg high school is the AP and honors classes. These classes are set to help students be set for college. The clubs are amazing but, they can be extremely small due to little student involvement. Due to Wickenburg being in a small town, there is no diversity. This has caused other students to mock others to their orientation. The staff in the office can be very harsh. It is very obvious that favoritism is set into the school. My major complaint go to the school's counselors. They never speak to their students and rarely respond back to emails. One of the counselors never show up to work or just show up late. They have never prepped me for my college of choice and rarely support students unless they are their favorites. However, the school has taught me to be more independent.

Although it is likely a common theme in public schools lately, there is incredible apathy at Wickenburg High School starting at the top with administration, through the teachers, and the majority of students and their parents. There are plenty of diamonds in the rough, as I have met a few incredible teachers, staff and students who I am very thankful to have met. Overall, however, most people just seem to be biding their time until retirement, graduation, a better job, etc. I am very involved, and some coaches/advisers are good while others are not. The facilities have improved in my time attending, and are very nice now. I have never felt unsafe at WHS. There is not too much diversity, but that is fitting, as the culture is not accepting at all.
I enjoyed the smaller enviornment, and the fact that there wasn't as many people to be stressed out with. There is also the fact that in having smaller classes makes you able to have in depth conversations with the teachers. I would like to see better teachers, as there was a common lack of. Also for there to be better conversation between the students and teachers. There were many miscommunications between myself and other teachers. I would also like to see the teachers actually care for the students and be willing to help and adapt to their students needs.
