The teachers at WACA are amazing. They genuinely care about you; they invest so much time and effort into you. So, don’t take that for granted. What change do I wish to see overall? Better coaches, especially for the girls teams. Another major issue in my eyes is the right amount of care. I’ve seen unmotivated kids get less care. I’ve also been that unmotivated kid. We want success, and we need you to help us, not give us space because we’re being uninvolved. These are just rough patches in our life.

I love WACA! Why? Because, I am encouraged to embrace my passion for music at this school. The principal, teachers, staff and students all act positively towards my musical journey. This school has plenty of amazing teachers that are to start a close relationship with students and act as mentors. I am blessed to be apart of this school! This school WILL prepare me for college!
The thing I really appreciated about WACA was it's diverse activities. They had a lot of clubs and a lot of people with different interests were able to interact as well. I would defintely recommend this school to someone who had an interest in Art/Ceramics/Dance/Theater.
The flipside of the coin is that people who are not interested in those kind of activities may have a harder time. It's got a reputation among the other Woodburn schools' students for being less academically rigorous.
