Willmar Senior High School is a great environment for students! The teachers really care about students succeeding and doing well not only in their class, but outside of school and college! They have really great sports teams with awesome coaches (facilities getting better and better each year!), and an awesome music program that helps students grow into talented young musicians. They also have a variety of clubs and activities for students to get involved in such as speech, knowledge bowl, art club, smart club, and more! I have enjoyed my time at Willmar Senior High School and definitely recommend it to anyone who’s thinking about moving to Willmar!

Very diverse school filled with different cultures. Guidance counselors are always there to help. There are many aferschool activities and sports to choose from by your own interest to help you get together and enjoy what you like to do. Every other Wednesday, Ramp Up periods with your assigned ramp up teachers help you better understand tests and things to prepare for college and your future. There are after school clubs like SmartClub, where you can stay after school to complete missing homework/tests.
Willmar Senior High School is a very diverse school which makes everyone feel at home and welcomed. All the staff are accommodating to every culture seeing as they would provide translators for the parents of the students who cannot speak English. Most of the teachers care for the students, and they want us to be ready to pursue our dreams by making us practice our talents. They are all very supportive and they would allow us to use the many facilities and resources of the school for us to work on our projects and assignments. I wish the food was better because it’s not quite fulfilling. I also wish they would put the same importance in academic clubs the same way they put importance in sports.
