Wayne Local School District Reviews

Waynesville is a small school with about 100 students per class. Personally, I love the size because I can say I know almost everyone within my high school. The only thing I wish was different within my school are the ways we incorporate our community/school events. This year there was a “committee” of sorts created called The Shield. It’s just another version of a student council but this is one where anybody in the high school is welcome to join to help plan community events through the school. We have tried to have more involvement with the school as a whole so there is more support and spirit directed towards all organizations. When people get more involved, it makes the classic boring school experience a lot more fun! New friends are made as well as amazing memories. All in all though, I love Waynesville with my whole heart. It has such a genuine staff. I’m heading off to college this year and I wish nothing but success for every single person in the Wayne Local School.

Wayne Local schools are a terrific system of education in all aspects. Clubs, sports, and academics are all top-notch and prepare any student for their next steps in life. Being an alum from Waynesville High School, I felt extremely prepped both emotionally and academically, for college. WHS also provides weekly SAT/ACT practice, college formatted tests, and other strategies that help students in the transition process from high school to college. Students who love being challenged mentally and are kind, considerate, and motivated will love it here. Wayne Local has a no-tolerance policy against violence, bullying or drug use. The administration is up to date on policies in today's world and always will, which makes this school, once again, a great place to study.
At Wayne Local, the preschool-8th grade is so much fun and hands-on teaching, and the teachers are mostly having fun with their students. Once you hit freshman year at Waynesville High, it feels like you're not really improving a whole lot and the teachers dread coming to work, and the staff is split into cliques, so they don't always work well together.
