    This is an amazing school. I am graduating this year. This is a school of about 200. The selection for sports and other extra-curicular activities is not the best. The teachers seem to know just about every student which can get annoying at times but it gives a great experience. It's true that the teachers give preference to the students that actually try to do the work. Most of the teachers are top notch but there is not a great selection of classes. My only suggestion for classes in SR year take Practical English it gives you knowledge that is actually useful such as how to write a resume and other things that are useful later in life. I love this school the area is great and beautiful.

    I am not happy with the way some of the teachers talk to our children and comments they make to them. There has been to many things to write on here.

    I am in Wild Rose school and am not really happy with the school. I feel that they could give a little more to the students. So because of the lack of attention I am thinking of moving from that school so it will be easyier to go to college.

    I graduated from Wild Rose High School in 2005 and am now a senior at Lawrence University. Despite what some of the other reviews may say this school does a fine job at preparing its students for life after high school. I was able to excel at 3 sports be in band and also be a part of SADD and NHS. It is true that there aren't a lot of options for sports but the school is small- for its size it offers a decent amount. As long as teachers see you're making an effort to try they're more than willing to offer help. The school also offers many advance placement classes that in my experience really helped make the first year of college easier than it otherwise would have been. I feel I got a great education there and enjoy returning every so often.

    Wild Rose High School is like no other it is a small school in a small town in Central Wisconsin. Yes there are some teachers who dont go out of there way for there students but there are many teachers that have either taught there for a long time or that are from the area that do go above and beyond for there students and not just the kids that apply themselves but to any student that will except the help. Yes the may not have as many extra-curriculars than big schools but that is also a part of a small D3 school. If you are looking for a group to belong to you will find it.

    I was very unsatisfied with my experiences at this school. I feel as though it was nearly impossible to flourish with such little resources. Really none were provided. I also felt as though stereotypes were cast on me and that was that.

    Wild Rose did not help me much when I was in school there. I was pretty much left to fend for myself. There wasn't much effort on staff part to make school really worth while. I don't know if this was a lot of kids problem but it was a major one for me. I wasn't able to achieve everything that I wanted to be able to do so I decited to move. There isn't much there but we're talking about a school with like 300 students total...I guess I assume there could have been more effort by teachers. I was given more attention in classes with 40 at another school than in Wild Rose when there was less than 20 students per class.

    There is very little in way of extra curricular activities. There is one play a year(b/g) one choir class(b/g) football(b) baseball(b) basketball(b/g) wrestling(b) volleyball(g) poms(g) and softball(g). Everyone can get in to the sports but if a person isn't a teacher's favorite it doesn't matter.
