    "Overall I have enjoyed my time at Waynesboro Senior High School. I have enjoyed going to sporting events or events such as Prom. While myself and the majority of the school do not agree with most of the decisions made by the administration of our school, there are some amazing teachers here. I have had teachers that I have absolutely loved and will always remember. If I could do it all over again, I would still choose this school because of the lifelong friends that I have made here and the impact teachers have left on me."

    "My first couple years at Waynesboro were great. I remember fun school event such as car bashs and cheering at football games. It was always a friendly learning atmosphere. However after Mr. Pappas became principle I noticed a lot of negative changes. The school atmosphere felt heavy like you always had to explain yourself and administration was out to get you. It also didn't feel friendly anymore. When you walked into school in the morning I was always used to Mr. Dennis(the former principal) greeting us with a smile and a "good morning" after Pappas became principle he never greeted us or smiled and asked how you were doing. I also noticed that the teachers lost their motivated demeanor around this time and seemed like they hated coming to work anymore."

    "Most of the teachers I had were very nice and willing to help if you were struggling. However most teachers felt that things were out of their control because the new principle and the school board were very dictative and made it hard to teachers to teach effectively like they did in the past."

    "My school allows us the opportunity to do internships through out the day. I was fortunate enough to be picked for a Health Care Institute Internship for 18 weeks at Summit Health in Chambersburg and Waynesboro Hospitals."
