Wake Early College of Health & Sciences Reviews

I loved the chance to obtain a "headstart" in college; taking college courses full-time in my junior and senior years of high school truly helped me to develop self-discipline that isn't always necessary in high school classes. Also, the ability to earn an Associate's Degree alongside my diploma was too good to pass up. However, I did miss out on a lot of "traditional" high school events, such as football games and a large prom. There wasn't really any chance to express school spirit, and the administration at times felt too worried about how we looked on paper than how we were doing in classes. They did care about and placed a large emphasis on mental health, which is a definite plus. Overall, I would choose this school again if prompted, but it's not easy to ignore what I missed out on.

At Wake Early College of Health and Science, they have prepared me for college level courses in so many ways. When I took my high school courses, the teachers would assign a lot of work and challenge all of their students. Therefore, this has made me a successful student. The teachers are always available to help any student that is struggling or needs extra motivation. Also, the school has provided so many resources for students to use to be successful in all of their classes. For example, at Wake Technical Community Colleges North Campus, students are able to use the ILC Center. This center has teachers as their staff that help other students through their academics. I have been to the ILC Center many times, and it is the reason I have passed many of my math classes. The staff is so nice and understanding. This program has prepared me not only for my college career, but for other aspects in my life.
The school has a very rigorous environment, that is unforgiving to those who do not put in the work. The administrators are very interested in the success in the students, to the point of taking extra time out of their day to sit down with those struggling to make sure they succeed. While the administrators are great, the work that is put on the students can be excessive at times, and the small environment can be detrimental to students who are not fully committed to joining the program.
