Wayne-Westland Community School District Reviews

I have gone to the Wayne-Westland Community District schools all my life. By putting in individual effort one can strive and learn a lot from the body of students and mostly all the teachers. One is likely to meet a few bad apples in the class body, facilities, and general staff but by asking around you will meet at least one person who can be your mentor. The teachers want to see you succeed but as a student you also have to put in the effort to try. Some teachers will stay after school to help you and others will not. It's about finding your way about the district to help you become successful. There is a wide array of clubs and activities especially in the high schools including LGBTQ+ club, state-recognized Ethics Bowl, the college bound Upward Bound, National Honor Society, and more. If there is a club you would like to see but isn't there you can create your own with a teacher at least about 5 other students. Good luck!

Wayne-Westland Community school district, in my opinion, is a very average school. While it may have strengths in areas such as band, and teachers, it lacks very much in administration. The administration seems to have pushed away many good teachers and allocated funds to athletics before academics. I personally would love to see steps taken in order to better compensate our teachers, encouraging them to stay in the district. I enjoyed my high school experience very much. However, it wasn't difficult to see cracks forming before I left. Literally and figuratively. Cracks in the ceilings meant rain indoors. Trash cans lining the hallway to collect rainwater is never a hopeful sight inside an institution of education. Rifts amongst staff and principles left teachers frustrated and rightly so. Sometimes this ended up being taken out on the students when teachers were too angered to put effort into us. The teachers who remained strong and did care though changed our lives.
There were a lot of improvements that needed to be done for my school. For example, my school only has air conditioning on the second floor. On the first floor there was only air conditioning in the cafeteria, library, the counseling office, and our main office. We were told the district only had one repair man. The school also needs many small improvements and they will be getting them in the next few years. Teachers at my school and students from other schools talk about the improvement their school and other schools in the district are needed but we could not get them. Last year, there was a bill that was voted for and passes to get improvements in our school and throughout the district. Hopefully, this will improve the everyday life and learning experience for students, teachers, and other staff members.
