Wiscasset High School Reviews

I came into this school from a much larger and non rural area school. So my view is very different from someone who lived in Wiscasset,ME their whole life. Although from many of the kids I had talked to they had said they wished we had more options for things such as the foods, sports, and clubs. I also found that since we have special needs kids at the high school I went to was that bullying was an issue even when addressed. I saw it on a daily basis and did my best to bring it up to the school or stop it myself to help stop it. The food, was terrible. Everytime I ate it I gained weight. The only thing stopping me from not gaining a ton back was the two gym classes I took. Overall, I would say it's an okay school. It could use improvement but I would like to say a step up from most schools because the teachers are more focused on the kids and are more helpful than other schools I had gone to.

Wiscasset is a nice school, a very relaxed environment. The teachers are nice and enjoy their job. The classes are small and allow for a lot of one-on-one time getting help if you need it.
All of the resource that we have are the best. The facilities are kept up to date and clean. We always have access to technology, we are given IPad for our school work. Our guidance counselor is very sweet and willing to work with you. We have a tone of college prep resources it is not a process that you need to go through alone. You can reserve tutoring if you ask for it. The bus transpertaion is reliable.
