If police officer wrote that I was driving approximately 30 mph in a 45 mph zone on the ticket though the opposite is true, will the ticket stand?

The police officer wrote that I was going 30 mph in a 45 mph zone. He must have written the speeds in the incorrect boxes, but nonetheless, should I contest the ticket and waive my right to traffic school or should I not contest it?

From what you have written I would contest the ticket where it shows that you are going under the required speed limit. Your ability to have the citing officer appear will discredit him or her in that it will show that per written documentation he or she was not paying attention to detail.
