    Waldron is a typical small school. 40 kids a grade. It isn't an awful school if you play basketball. The athletic director is also the basketball coach and be a total dbag. I guess that's everywhere though. He picks favorite. The staff is nice but they don't really make you learn. You can just coast through high school. Waldron should be rated less than a 6 but I think it's an average high school nowadays.

    Waldron is a great SMALL High School located in typical "Small Town America". For a smaller school it has an excellent well rounded curriculum. The school still maintains a community feel. The staff is very good and on the younger side of the scale.

    I would assure anyone who is thinking of going to waldron that it is a wise decision. My daughter has learned a tremendous amount since she first started going to waldron. All the staff is friendly and eager to get to know you. The parent involvement is wonderful. The parents are involved with all events before during and after school. I like the idea that my daughter is going to a school that is almost like a second home. Everyone is looking out for one another and they push one another to try harder and do their individual best. I believe waldron is over looked a lot due to the fact it is a small school. It is a small school with a lot of spirit!
