I enjoyed my years at West. The teachers were great, I really liked my counselor and I participated in the music programs and I LOVED IT! The diversity at the school is ok. If you weren't asian then you were white it seemed. That's just the demographics of Wausau but it is starting to get a little more diverse. The mod program really teaches students the importance of time management and that prepares them for college. Although, being a minority at the school does have it's challenges. Even though, I am not going to say that teachers are racist, there are teachers who do give privileges and biases to white students who are on sports and athletic teams. For example, being called out in the commons during off mods for doings such as playing with quarters. My friend and I noticed that another student who was white and on an athletic team was demonstrating rude and obnoxious behavior but the teacher did not say anything, however when we started to play with the quarters we were immediately approached and told to stop.

Any and all teachers and counselors here are willing to help and definitley go the extra mile to see you succeed. I absolutley loved West overall. The friendships and experiences are some of the best things that have happened in my life. Both of my siblings have attended and one is currently attending here. It's dedication to give students a successful education environment and yes the Mod system absolutley was amazing!!!! Bottom line if your in Wausau or are moving to Wausau regardless which side you live on pick West. West is Best as we all say and thats for a reason!

Wausau West, with it's flex-mod scheduling, is the greatest school in Wisconsin. My child has learned independence and terrific study skills. Teachers are available every mod of the day to help her in every subject. The counseling staff is also fantastic and extremely helpful. The teachers send regular emails on her progress which is really helpful in keeping up with whst she is doing in school. The associate principal, Mr. Munoz is on top of any problem or discipline that may arise. He really gets to know the kids! There are outstanding Peer Leader groups and other clubs and sports.
