I really love all the teachers at Washburn Rural High School. They are probably the best part of my experience. Most of the students are super kind as well. Everyone seems to be hoping the best for others and that is a great feeling. The only down fall is that administration is so strict that sometimes it feels like we are in a prison, not a school. The lunches are decent, thanks to the Ali Cart options. School spirit is not widely popular but still practiced. And the clubs and sports teams are all excellent, along with the coaches and sponsers.

The cafeteria food at Washburn Rural High School always has a variety compared to other schools. At Washburn Rural if a student were to not want the main dish than they could either get a salad, pizza, ala cart, yogurt, sandwich, and many more options. The variety of food offered at Washburn Rural is fabulous! However, not only do they have options that are not healthy, they also have options which are healthy. Furthermore, at Washburn Rural High School there is vending machines for students to get snacks if they are hungry throughout the day. The healthy food options at Washburn Rural for lunch are a salad, yogurt, a sandwich and many more options.

We go above and beyond to bring anyone and everyone into this school and let them be in an acceptable environment. We have clubs upon clubs that are available to us and even when you look at the individuals with special needs we have clubs just for them that incorporate individuals without those needs. We pair mentors with the special needs children and we also have sports for them as well called, Everyone is a Jr Blue, where during games they will cheer with the cheerleaders and during halftime they will run a play with the teams.
