Charles B. Aycock High School Reviews

All Categories
Charles B. Aycock High School is one of the best high schools in Wayne County. The downside to this school stems from the lack of funding and regards from the Board of Education. While the school did receive a brand new wing in 2017, there are still concerns with the older parts of the building.
In regards to the school spirit and culture, there is a lack of encouragement from the administrative staff of the school itself. School Spirit events such as pep rallies, student sections at games, spirit weeks, and others are highly restricted and limited.
With that being said, the teachers working there do love their jobs and have always made an effort to encourage education in their students.
In terms of Wayne County, Aycock comes out on top, but there are still a multitude of concerns that need to be addressed.

The teachers at this school are always open and willing to help any student when they need it. Being a straight A student, I feel the material taught by all the teachers I have had throughout all four of my years is very well provided. The AP and honors classes are taught by exceptional teachers, and also help prepare students for college level classes. Aside from the classes, the social bonds and experiences at Aycock are unforgettable. I am a student athlete, and the bonds I have made with my teammates cannot compare to any other friendships. The coaching staff for all sports is phenomenal and continues to improve each year I have attended Aycock. Overall, I am very grateful to have been able to live my high school experience at Charles B. Aycock High School along with the friendships I have made.
My high school experience has been fun. The teachers are very relatable and understanding of students and their backgrounds. Also, staff and students are involved in community activities. The academic portion of Charles B. Aycock High School is somewhat challenging; students must take it upon themselves if they want to be challenged academically here.
