Waterloo High School is a high school located in Waterloo, New York, USA. It holds about 800 students from Grades 9 - 12 and teaches according to the Board of Regents. The current Principal is Mr. Jeramy Clingerman, and the current Assistant Principal is Mr. Vincent Vitale.

History Edit

Waterloo Senior High School was first established on Stark Street in Waterloo, albeit not at its current location. A new building was completed in 1929, and was located at 202 West Main Street. Following district centralization in 1939, it served as home for both the Junior High and Senior High grades. Due to overcrowding, a new senior high building was constructed at 65 Center Street and was completed in time for the 1961-1962 school year. It originally held grades 9 through 12, but again due to crowding issues, the 9th grade was moved to the Middle School building on West Main Street until a new wing was constructed on the North end of the building. This wing would house several new classrooms, mostly in the Social Studies and English departments, as well as a library and study hall classroom. The East Wing housed Foreign Language, Mathematics, and the Assistant Principal's office. The South Wing was a longer stretch that contained the Nurse, Guidance, and the Main and Principal's office, as well as Science classrooms. This wing included a hallway that stretched south vertically and included more science rooms, Art and Music classrooms, and the cafeteria. The west wing held the gymnasium and home economics.

In January 2006, construction was completed on a new school, attached the western wing of the old building. The old high school houses the district Middle School.

School Layout Edit

WHS4

The Waterloo High School building from 1961 until 2006.

The entrance to the new High School leads through the main office and to an atrium, housing rest areas and the School Library, now shared with the Middle School. The high school has three main wings on the first floor, with the first wing originally containing English, Spanish, and the Guidance Office, and the second wing originally containing mostly Social Studies, Special Education, and Science. The two wings were connected by a pair of hallways, one leading to the gymnasium and two smaller classrooms, and the other hallway leading to a wing that protruded westward containing Art & Technology. A rectangular east wing was also constructed that lead to the cafeteria, as well as housing In-school suspension, and the music classrooms. The second wing contains the school's second floor, originally housing Mathematics, French, Business, and Science. This departmental organization of the High School was changed when the Freshmen Academy was added to the high school, with teachers of Grade 9 courses were moved to the second floor, swapping classrooms with Math teachers who did not teach Grade 9.
