This school is very well rounded. It adequately prepares students for a future in any career they desire. The teachers are truly gifted and passionate about aiding the students in their coursework. The staff is extremely helpful and flexible in scheduling any necessary sessions or meetings. There are many extra curricular activities and sports for the students to participate in. The school spirit is beautiful to see at the games. The building is large and very clean, its big enough to accommodate all students. I would definitely consider enrolling a child here, the academics are amazing too! Wade Hampton is an excellent school with a wonderful environment.

Having transferred our son his sophomore year to Wade Hampton was one of the best decisions we ever made. The environment, teachers, strong academics and diverse student body transformed him. His grades excelled and this year he graduates with honors and is headed off to his dream school with a huge academic scholarship. Wade Hampton is an extraordinary school that provides its student an abundance of resources and opportunities to succeed. Very proud to be part of the Hamp!
As a current Senior at WHHS, I can say with confidence that Wade Hampton pushes it's students to be excellent. As a 5A school the large student body can be overwhelming but, teachers and administration work to help every student on an individual level. No school in Greenville county embodies school spirit better than Wade Hampton, raising over $300,000 for our 2019-2020 charity organization and cheering on our Varsity Boys Basketball Team onto Upper state, students at Wade Hampton support one another . Violence and bullying is in no way tolerated, Wade Hampton has dedicated Student Resource Officers and Administrators. There are a wide variety of courses offered, including both AP and Dual enrollment. And clubs that encourage service within the community.
