    "Let's face it, every school has its problems. Waco's are just exploited by a very biased media. Here's the facts: the real world isn't perfect. It's filled with challenges and hardships that require thinking on your toes and toughening up. Waco prepares you for that better than any school in the area could. My experiences there made my transition into the real world much smoother compared to my private school and suburban counterparts. The teachers are great, especially if you enroll your kids in AP. They're supportive, firm, and want to see the best come out of you. They teach beyond the text book and show how to be a productive member of society. Yes, this place is far from perfect, but that's not always a bad thing. Send your kids here if you want them to be well-rounded adults with an appropriate outlook on life."

    "Waco High needs to get it together,They need to learn how to talk to parents more, They need to learn to have the parents involed it seems there all there for the money and this it,Just a paycheck my child is not a paycheck he needs to learn more,He needs the adults at this school to do what there suppose to do teach them guid them in the right direction and not to push them away.We are all here to help these children to be able not to make the mistakes we did and it seems the parents are doing all the work then, They all ways want to know why we are so upset!!"

    "Level of parent involvment low. Teacher communication with parents poor. Never personally met principal during problems my child had as a 9th grader. Counselors overworked and overwhelmed. Found a very uncaring unruly envirnment."

    "I am a parent of two Waco High graduates and am pleased with the end result. The fine arts program is excellent! The quality of the academic program is also excellent, IF you are enrolled in Athens classes. As in any school, you will find good teachers and bad. As in any school, students' learning is directly tied into the effort put into learning. The level of parent involvement is good. Waco High is probably comparable to many other large, diverse high schools."

    "I am a graduate of Waco High school and I loved the experience! It is smaller than when I went because of the opening of another high school. great sports great academic programs, and fun atmosphere. I think alot of people are afraid because it is prodominately African- American, but all in all I would go back to Waco High all over again instead of the suburban schools!"
