Walla Walla High School 4

The physical school is, yes, in need of updating. The campus is beautiful and is mostly respected by the students. Parking can be challenging and the lack of proper HVAC systems in the classrooms make for very hot warm months and cold winters. This is at no fault of the school itself, but rather the local voters who have voted down every available levy option to update the school. The staff really seem to care and will take the time to help students when needed. I think they could place more value on post-high school endeavors for students. Not everyone is cut of for a 4-year institution, which is what is pushed by counsellors and staff. I would personally like to see a wider range of options presented including the applications and acceptance process for ivy league schools and vocational and trade programs offered by the local community college. I finished up my masters a few years ago from Harvard and have the solid foundations I obtained at wa-hi to thank.

Wa-hi is a great high school to attend, and will enrich your child's high school experience. It offers many unique electives, and now that my child has graduated, they are thankful for the wonderful oppurtunities.

The sports there are amazing. The staff is amazing. But the the school turned into a freaking prison. I went there for 3 1/2 years and never loved the school. Too strict at the school and no fun. Kids there are bratty as ever and show disrespect to other kids and teachers. I will NOT sent my kids there. Oh wait I moved.

Many of these reviews are by people who rally do not know anything about the school. There are many outstanding teachers and staff members, it has a great campus, and i do not see that much of an overcrowding issue.

My 2 kids attended, one graduated 2009, the second will in 2012. Both high achievers, but this has been 'despite' the school. Football is king here, other sports available but in some, selection/ranking is based on favoritism (tennis). Cross-Country, Choir/vocal, Drama programs excellent; band program weak. Facility is critically overcrowded, tax levy for improvements fail. Some gang/drug activity. Admin deals w/ overcrowding w/ more oppressive rules and security. If your child is highly motivated and *assertive*, he will get what he needs, but beware if he's less driven & needs teacher/admin to w/ motivation or support. Number of AP classes available, there is handful of exceptional teachers, but college-prep emphasis is community college. Difficult to get support if your child is interested in prestigious/selective colleges/universities. Counselors unaware of these schools and standard application procedures. You/your child will have responsibility for learning about colleges and ensuring school completes its part of materials.

Wa-Hi is an excellent school. All of the teachers my child had were excellent, and helped increase her self confidence (it's a large school). The facilities and campus are also very nice!
