This school has been a blessing for me to attend. While there are many stigmas around small schools, Wayne Local Schools have never ceased to make me feel at home. I have made many great memories within their walls, and have made many life long friends. This isn't because of the amount of time that I've been there, but the family aspect this school aura creates. I have truly enjoyed my time at Wayne Local, and as I continue on to the next chapter, I take the lessons I learned there with me. Thank you Waynesville Local Schools for the memories!
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.
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.
Wayne Local Schools have an excellent staff. I, personally, had a great connection with all of my teachers and felt equally supported and challenged. I feel very confident that the course load prepared me for college academics.
I think that the current administration is trying to change too much too fast and that sometimes they get caught up in test scores rather than the material, but other than that I love it!
If I could change something about Waynesville it would be how we are involved within the community. Waynesville is a small town and the school is not really involved with the community at all. We could do so much more than we already are. We could house public events within out gymnasium or on the brand new turf football field that the community paid for. The community is fairly active itself, but not with the school since the school doesn't do much for the community.
