Township High School District No. 214 Reviews

District 214 has its many advantages and many flaws as well. Among the advantages we have a great college readiness system. It’s rare that a student walks out of one of our high school with a college plan. The academics are flexible and accommodating leaving students leaning more towards learning then memorizing. Our schools have great supports systems for students to rely on whether it’s our counselors, teachers, or just the staff in general. Most days I am honestly excited to come to school. All great things come with some not so great things. I feel as though these schools often have a lot of competition among its student. Although competition can be healthy it’s not always the case. As in any school, athletes are placed on a pedestal, never seeming to follow the same rules everyone else does. A lot of times these schools leave some racial outcasts. Minorities in these school are for the most part swept to the side unless we play sports or are excelling academically.

Wheeling High School is a unique enviornment in which I enjoy to attend everyday. Principal Cook has set a new vibe for Wheeling—one that emphasizes school pride and an importance for academics. What I enjoy about WHS is that the focus on STEM is very helpful. Whether or not one chooses to pursue a career in STEM, it is important to note that the rigorous courses prepare one to suceed in other classes as well as other aspects outside of school. A majority of students are involved in extracurricular activities which allows for gaining experience with working alongside their peers. Also, the faculty works hard to give their students the best learning experiences. Overall, I have enjoyed my time at Wheeling. I feel prepared for college due to the many AP and college dual-credit courses I have been enrolled in, as well as extracurricular activities. WHS should not be frowned upon when compared to other schools in the district; it is a great place to receive an education.
I found District 214 to be an overall very good district. The schools are very diverse with a very open and welcoming culture. I have never seen an incident of bullying or mistreatment the whole time I was there and I have never felt unsafe there. The administration is excellent and does a good job of keeping us informed/prepared for college and our lives.
My only complaint is that some of the teachers are not up to the same standards, due to generally being not pleasant or not knowing their subjects. However, this does not reflect the majority of teachers in the district, only a few bad ones.
Overall, with few exceptions, my time at district 214 has been very good and I would recommend the district to parents and students alike.
