    "I get it, when you live in the middle of nowhere, it's not like you have a lot of choices. However, it would be nice to be able to say I was proud to go to WAHS, when in reality I only liked a handful of classes out of all four years there. What the school struggles with is even distribution of funding. For example, the football team receives a good hunk of the budget for not just the athletic extracurriculars, but for all extracurriculars. The kids in the theatre productions at school get almost no budget, and the actual curricular budget for the music and art programs are nonexistent. For kids to whom this stuff matters, it affects their view of the school."

    "It's not fair to judge all of the teachers at WAHS when there was a large discrepancy between each teacher. I had a US History teacher who was engaging, graded fairly, used real-world connections and was always there for his students, and my next history teacher was the least-engaging teacher in the school. I had one English teacher who taught us just fine and could meet with us after class; the next year I had an English teacher who graded erratically and let her moods determine what we were going to do for that day, and the next year I had an English teacher who would obviously play favorites and didn't seem to care about student well being outside of the classroom, however she was a great teacher. My physics teacher was always available after class and would help me through any difficulty, my chemistry teacher would do no such thing. There was no standard for teachers being available or being good teachers, unfortunately, and I had to adapt to each new teacher's personality and teaching style every single year, which could be hard given that I learn a specific way."

    "My overall experience at this school so far has been mixed. The school is good on education and have interesting classes but, the funding of the school go towards things that aren't as important to students education then they are to the school board. Overall the school is a interesting place to learn about the outside world."

    "The school was great in some areas with some teachers that prepared us above and beyond the required curriculum. But, there were others that were very subpar."
