Southern Wayne High School Reviews

Southern Wayne is kind of seen as a “bad school”. When I was in middle school, my mom didn’t even want to me go here. She claimed that there was always conflicts like fights and stuff going on. I still chose to go here. The people you meet here are different in every way shape or form. That’s why I love it so much, walking through the cramp hallways rushing to get to your next class gives an adrinilin rush like no other. The teachers claim that they are here to help, which I believe is their soul purpose, but sometimes they can be rude and mean, but maybe hats because of my personal experience with them. Throughout my time here I’ve never been caught up in the mischievous events. I’ve always done my work and kept it pushing. Which is what I love about my school. It teaches you how mind your business and focus on yourself.
