  • Waite was the first High School I ever went to, and I'm glad. The teachers are great, because they're not just your teachers they're your friends. And that's great, because it helps to make people feel more comfortable, and that's important when it comes to asking questions and stuff. I'm a softmore now, and living in Colorado, so I miss my teachers and students I met there, but I'm just glad I got to experience just a little of Waite.

  • Waite was my first high school and than we moved and I graduated from Clay High class of 1982. It was the best year of my life, I was in the band and I ran track. I even broke a school track record in the 800 meters,spring of 1979.
    It rates high in my memories.
