Great teachers, extremely helpful staff , with every conference, phone call you fell fully informed about your kid . My son was a transfer after freshman year and I couldn't be more happy about Wauconda HS !
The homework given grew as my children went from freshmen to seniors as they should. The level and type of homework given matched accurately what a college student would receive as they neared their senior year.
The 2016 class at Wauconda voted for a special needs child for prom queen simply because she was the nicest student in their class. Breaking the traditional norm of choosing the most popular or the prettiest girl in the class.
I have had two boys attend Wauconda High School both one very good student and one with special needs. Both were treated exceptionally well by all staff at Wauconda high school. This is a school where the students are kind hearted, warm and where my boys have made their lifelong friends. Both boys are now attending college and much of their success there can be attributed to the wonderful support and experience they have had at Wauconda.
Most of these reviews are old and many seem to be from people who seem to feel personally put upon or are whining about some incident. As a resident if Wauconda township, I have worked with the Future Business Leaders of America club and have found the students, faculty, and community members to be exceptional! They are the largest club at the school and 8th largest chapter in the USA. This year, after participating in rigorous regional and state competitions, they are sending 20 deserving students to the National Competition. These students QUALIFIED for this honor in competition. It is a significant achievement of national importance. Quite often in high school students do not perform well. The tendency is to blame the school when the real cause is the student or the support they get from their parents. Motivated students supported by parents, teachers, and the community are what creates successful schools. These students have brought repeated honor (the club has only been in existence for about 5-6 years and they have gone to Nationals 3 or 4 times) to the school based on their knowledge, skill, drive and determination.
