Waverly Senior High School or known just as Waverly High School is located in Waverly, Michigan, an unincorporated community in Delta Township. As of February 2013 the school had 1,060 students in 9th to 12th grade.[1]


The school was built between 1959 and 1961, and was renovated several times. In the mid to late 1980s, the school was renovated for removal of asbestos. During the 1990s and mid 2000s, the school was renovated for installation of computers and television sets for classroom use. It is believed that during that time, the school also had installation of SmartBoards and document cameras and projectors. The track was built sometime in the late 1990s and early 2000s by McKearney Asphalt.


Waverly offers six AP classes: English literature and composition, U.S. history, world history, calculus, biology and psychology.[2]
