Students Experiences at Washburn


Cora Iarossi & Audrey Solis, Writers

Mishayla Diacon is a junior at Washburn Rural High School and has been attending the 437 district since elementary school. Her high school experience has not been the best but her friends make everything at school 10% better. Mishayla had a favorite teacher named Miss.Wasserstein and Mishayla loved her specifically because she was a nice teacher, she had a fun classroom, and just brought a good vibe to the environment. Mishayla does not like the school lunch that is served here at Washburn and feels it is very repetitive. As a junior in high school Mishayla has to think about her future and what she wants to do in life, and she looks forward to these last two years at Washburn coming to an end so she can pursue her career.

Washburn is filled with a variety of students and another one of ours is Keaton Maddox, he is another one of our juniors here at Washburn. He has been attending the 437 district since a very young age. He is very goal bound and has felt his high school experience would have been better if he would have talked to his peers more. He likes coming to school and making more friends and getting his work done. Mr.Williams was Keaton’s favorite teacher and he helped him a lot with getting through high school and giving him the tools he needs to get better at the things he wants to accomplish. Keaton’s favorite part about school is hanging out with his friends.

Ann Stevens is a sophomore in high school and has been going to the 437 district for as long as she can remember. Ann does not enjoy nor dislike her time here at Washburn but her friends make her time here way better. Mrs.Mitchell and Mr.Ellis are also a big part of her life and have helped her very much throughout high school. She is very excited for next year when he can start Washburn Tech. One of her biggest problems that she feels is not very well taken care of at Washburn is that everybody talks about mental health but she feels not a lot of time is actually taken to check in on students and to keep their students mental health afloat.
