Wenatchee High School is overcrowded. You can't walk through the hallways without feeling like a heard of cattle. Since the school is so large it is almost like the students are a number and not a name. Finding help from the teachers can also seem like a chore because they leave right after school or there are many other students already filling their time. The course load is easy and not challenging for some students.

Most WHS teachers seemed to know the score about the school; it was school, and there were rules, but as long as you were a good kid and did your work, you got on their good side. Cafeteria was actually worthwhile, but the principal seemed like she was trying to fit everyone into a 'wide acceptance' mold where we had to be courteous at all times and show our proper level of school spirit (hard for those without). Not the worst high school in Washington, but I'm sure there were better.

I thought that the cirriculum was not as challenging as it could be. Also, it is not a culturally diverse school, which inhibits character growth and cultural intelligence. I did enjoy the small town attitude and the general school spirit.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used End-of-Course (EOC) examinations to assess students in Algebra I, Geometry, Integrated Math I, Integrated Math II, and Biology. The EOC tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
