This is a great school with involved staff! It has a ver approachable atmosphere and lots of opportuninty for student growth, It's challenging for my kids, in a good way. IThey are getting a good education and I feel like the teachers really care.They have a great music department and take pride in their sports teams! A+
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.
