Willamette High School Reviews

What I like most about Willamette is the fact that we have classes, clubs and sports for everyone! We have such a wide variety that everyone can find one that fits their interests and if they can't then they are welcome to start their own club. One improvement I feel like could be made is the social environment and how people make fun of others in hateful ways.

The first thing I noticed about Willamette's class offerings is "Wow, this school has a lot of electives." It's CTE program ensures that those electives are not only fun, but helpful. It doesn't have many AP classes, but it does have an IB program, and allows for partial IB. Also, the IB coordinator doesn't believe in homework, so that's cool. I've haven't done it yet, but it doesn't sound as brutal as some. The electives don't disappoint. Speaking of AP classes, the AP Human Geography teacher is amazing, and we had like 3 weeks of prep for the AP exam with a whole bunch of practice exams as well. They have video game design, and it's amazing. Cons are that the football team has a reputation for being terrible and freshman aren't allowed to go off campus because stupid people. Also, you used to be able to take sophomore bio in your freshman year, but stupid freshman ruined that too. Overall, may not be top end, but if it's the school you'll be entered into, it's not a bad choice.
Willamette is an amazing school. The teachers are very helpful and are always looking out for the best for you. They have a tremendous amount of opportunities set up for students who have all kinds of ambitions and desires in mind, from robotics to sports and to culinary arts. Willamette has an abundance of international bachelorette classes for students who want to go above and beyond. This school offers almost every sports program there is. soccer, football, volleyball, baseball, golf, tennis and plenty more. The coaches truly care for their players, in both academics, and on the field. Willamette is a very open-minded school and very inclusive. so students can go to class and learn equally without the fear of being judged or bullied.
