This is a great school. I attended there in 1995 and it was a great experience.

I believe Wasilla High School to be comparable to any good high school in the state. My son will graduate a year early due to the many Accelerated Placement courses available to him. I believe the high dropout rate is due to many families withdrawing students and moving around the state. The school still shows those kids on their rolls. When I went to parent/teacher conferences this year few parents showed up and my son's teachers were so happy to see me. If a child is having a hard time in school I would look to the parent before blaming the staff. My son attended his first semester of 9th grade in New Mexico and is much happier now that we moved and he attends Wasilla High.

WHS is one of the worst high schools in the Matanuska Valley area. Wasilla has such a high drop out rate that the community has had to open alternative schools in recent years. Most of the students that attend the alternative schools come form wasilla and do well because the teacher student ratio is better. also the alternative schools simply graduate students using work study credit. Some of the teachers at wasilla high school simply have been there to long and do not have the passion they started with years ago. I have seen and know teachers that have been teaching for years and still are motivated and enjoy teaching different student mentalities. Wasilla teachers are not that way they dont care if the students fail.
