WHS has done more harm than good with my kids They were ill prepared for college, were not taught decent skills, study habits, etc. Special needs-HORRIBLE! say 1 thing, write another- if it's not in writing it didn't happen. 1 teacher in particular is ruthless and it's her way or move 'em out of her ...  Read more

Most kids go to college from this school, with a handful going into the military and trades. The school is the center of the community and it's small semi-rural/semi-suburban setting has effectively insulated it from a lot of problems seen in other area schools. There is a good demographic mix and ...  Read more

Beleive what you have read from most of these reviews. You can't imagine the disappointment our family had from the Wauconda school district. Long overdue are the improvements made from the referendum, now they need to continue to improve the teachers/staff in their school--almost impossible.

It's not the best school but it has made many great improvements. However, there are changes that the school could've done without.

WOW, great improvements to the High School. It's wonderful to see the community putting forth the effort to increase the education and the grounds. I look forward to seeing the results this year.
