Wade Hampton High School Reviews

I absolutely love Wade Hampton. It has strong academics and has challenged me. Furthermore, the teachers are some of the best teachers I have had in my life. However, there are some things that could be improved. First, our sports teams are not great. Of course, we excel at some sports such as basketball and softball, but our football team rarely ever wins. Another thing that could be improved at Wade Hampton is our diversity of clubs. There are some clubs, but there is not much diversity since most of them are service clubs. My school has definitely prepared its students for college through events such as "College Application Day" and the annual college fair. Also, Wade Hampton offers many AP classes that are college level to give students experience of what college classes would be like. Wade Hampton High School won the Blue Ribbon award a couple years ago, and it continues to live up to those standards.

Wade Hampton High was fantastic! I was adeqetely prepared for college and beyond, and formed some wonderful relationships with the faculty and administration. Though the school is fairly large (around 1,700 students), there was a strong sense of community throughout the building, which I think speaks volumes about the culture of the school.

The facilities opened in 2006 or so, and so the building was clean, up to date, and functional.

The clubs and organizations were extremely diverse, remniscent to a small college as far as the choices students had.

Overall, WHHS was top notch. I would certainly choose to attend it if I had to do it all over again!
My experience at Wade Hampton High School was average, although the guidance staff at the high school was excellent. Guidance counselors were available during my senior year to lead students toward the next steps after graduation, whether students were continuing to college or taking other routes. The faculty cares about each student's individual success.
