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 is average. While I attended, administration changed frequently, but now Dr. Rudolph is there and honestly is the best principal I've had in a long time. He's very caring and looks out for students, especially black students, as if they were his own children. He provides support that many people not have at home. As for the rest of the school, the food is sub par, typical public school food, the facilities and teachers are also sub par, although there are a couple good teachers. Overall its an average school with its average ups and downs.
The staff and teachers are very hard workers and treat the students kind and nice. The school has many sports opportunities for the students and everyone is allow to equally try out for the sports. The coaching staff are great and helpful with training the students the art of sports and to have a good attitude. Also, we have first fun learning. The teachers are well trained. The counselors are helpful to the students for finding out about colleges and scholarships.
