I feel this school district has the potential to improve. This school has a unique advantage compared to most area schools because of the resources available from the local Native American tribe. The teaching staff appears committed to the success of each individual student however there are a few teachers that seem to be in teaching for the wrong reasons. I agree with previous reviews that there is a bullying issue with racial undertones. The most glaring needs for this school are strong administrative leadership and the establishment of school wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Support System. The school morale has been declining due to a lack of leadership and overall negative school climate. The teachers within this building are not given enough supports for a challenging clientele. The low morale and lack of support has caused a large amount of teacher turnover which will most likely continue until there are changes at the school. If you want a quality education for your kids and a school/community environment that they will feel safe in I recommend any of the following: Eagle River, Mercer,Phelps, and Hurley.

I am so glad my parents moved me from Watersmeet School to a different school in Wisconsin. Yesterday was my first day and I received a brand new Chromebook and we were all trained how to use them. I was being bullied by a group of Native kids at Watersmeet and I got told to quit complaining when I tried to tell my teacher. I felt I wasn't getting a good education there and I am worried I will be behind my class, however my new school offers interventions to help me catch up. I am so excited to play sports at my new school! Especially football!

I am currently a student at Watersmeet. Let me start off with the first terrible review is false I do agree that most of the students are white and do have issues with natives but the principle has kicked out the students that have been causing problems. Also one of my favorite things is that teachers stay after school to help students that have a hard time, they coach and they do it all for no extra pay. In this school you can have your kids learning what they need to and have fun doing it. The teachers are extremely nice and have fun teaching and we as well have a blast. Also if you have any kids ready for drivers ed the native tribe pays for most of it sometimes they pay for everything.
