Wayne Township Public School District Reviews

I enjoy the classes I am in and the teachers I come in contact with. My issue with our school system is that children with learning disabilities or lower intelligence levels are put into classes with students who could not care less about their grades or futures, ultimately disadvantaging those who have learning disabilities or other issues. The teachers for the harder classes care about their job and their students, but most of the regular-level classes are taught by those who act in unfavorable ways to their students. Overall, I like my high school because I push myself and enroll in classes with teachers who care about their students, but I may feel otherwise if I hadn't done so.

This school has many things. In diversity it is excellent. Here there are many students that come from everywhere. This is a very diverse school. Everywhere you go you see Hispanics, African Americans, whites, etc. Once you get to high school, the teachers do not care as much. Some teachers still care about their students. But most teachers do not. Avid is a good program here. I got to admit not everything we do in Avid helps me, like the tutorials. But in general here the teachers care. It's like the only place where the teachers actually care about their students. Each and every student no matter your background. In safety there are only fights in 5 times of the year that those happen. The 5 times of the year where there are a lot of fights is the beginning of the school year, before fall break, before winter break, before spring break, and the end of the school year. But other than that the school is very safe.
