I have had multiple children graduate from Wawasee. Each one will tell you how far behind they were compared to other students at the University level. They felt they were not as prepared as kids from other high schools and also had far fewer transferable credits. Recently, I spoke to a parent of a Homestead graduate and she had 45 college credits when she graduated. My kids had less than six and all were in accelerated programs. Wawasee needs to do better.

This school corporation has many favorites among sports. They favor of course their football and basketball and make sure everything is provided fully for them, they tend to step on and careless about other school sports. I am very upset with how the athletic department is ran, their lack of care to sports that have been around for years is horrible! Their notifications to coaches who actually coach those lesser sports are very few and ridiculous!!
