    The Wellington School Reviews

    As a parent, trust is a very important thing to me and during this pandemic even more so. The wellington administration thought is was okay to disrupt my children's education in a pathetic attempt to impose a punishment on me. They were willing to use my children as weapons to enforce a made rule that does nothing to help control the spread of the corona virus. As a result of their actions, I can no longer trust this institution and now have to consider if I am willing to entrust my children's future education with people this lazy and incompetent.

    Wellington High School is smaller than many schools, which means I have an opportunity to get to know people better. It feels more like a family school. The classroom size are small enough that you can get personalized attention from the teacher. Every teacher I have ever had there has been willing to take the time to help me if I needed it. They seem to really care about the students. There are many opportunities to get involved in extracurricular activities at Wellington.
    Well, I spent my childhood in Wellington since I was four. I mainly went for the academics. There were a few things that popped up recently and a few really bad experiences that happened there, like one faculty member who lied about me heavily and continually singled me out in class, and some other things that did not agree with my religious background. I did not feel safe in recent years at wellington. This was the kind of thing that I wanted to avoid at this school. I am disappointed in Wellington's behavior but will be forever grateful for the great childhood and academics that they gave me.
