Wake Early College of Health & Sciences Reviews
Rating 3.89 out of 5 137 reviews
I am a sophomore at Wake Early College of Health and Sciences, and I got to say that it has been a great school so far. The teachers here are great as they are very knowledgeable of their subjects and capable of explaining concepts to students. In addition, this school provides us with many opportunities to learn more about different careers. As a part of our early college program, we become full-time college students at Wake Tech. This is great considering that we get to graduate with an associate's degree at no extra cost. This not only helps families financially but also saves two years of time and prepares students for college. Overall, my experience at Wake Early College of Health and Sciences has been great!
This school is truly a good school. The teachers are always there to help, and definitely the best teachers I have ever had. They are always there for you, and help you with anything. There is a large work load, but in the end it is worth it with all the accomplishments.
This school is not for everyone. The program is rigorous and overworks the students. The school's response to COVID-19 and switching to virtual classes was quite unsuccessful. The administration does not listen to the concerns of parents and students, and the majority of the teachers solely teach because it is their job. On the bright side, the student body is diverse and welcoming.
Although this school has its benefits, it sucks the fun out of basically any activity. The workload is near impossible, and some of the teachers are clearly teaching only because it is their job. Some teachers are nice and know what they are doing; however, some are nice only for the act. They do not connect with the students and when confronted, it's merely a brush on the shoulder and complete disregard for our mental health. If you are planning to come to this school for the benefits, be prepared to see the world in grey.
I am a WECHS Alumna as of 2020. This high school set me on a very successful path. It was not easy, but it was worth it. I am now going to my dream university and am following my goals to be a pediatric anesthesiologist.
The freshman and sophomore year you are stuck with your grade classmates for two years. This can sometimes lead to many drama but also can gain strong relationship but it hard to get away from toxic people. Most teacher you are able to create a strong connection because of the classroom size and they really get to know you. In your junior and senior year you do not see anyone because everyone is spread out through the North Wake Tech campus.
Great students and teachers, terrible administration. It is a very rigorous program, but do not expect any help from the administration. The teachers are actually invested in the students futures and truly care about their education.
WECHS IS A GREAT SCHOOL OVERALL AND WILL PREPARE YOU FOR COLLEGE! The teachers are involved and there are many opportunities available : )
There are a lot of teachers that have favorites so sometimes it is hard to get them to pay as much attention they do to you as they do to them. But overall was a good school.
Being at WECHS the first two years is extremely challenging and can be draining in regards to mental health. It is vert different from a normal high school experience as the school is small and does not have the same events.
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.
My experience with Wake Early College of Health & Sciences is amazing. I am currently a Junior, and have loved it ever since. Though it is a hard school, the teachers truly care about the students, and the way they teach shows it. This school provides a quality school education, as well as a friendly environment for students.
Wake Early College of Health and Sciences provides students with a great path to success. Despite the rigorous course load, the experience overall sets everyone to succeed.
The first two years are difficult due to all high school courses being completed your freshman and sophomore year. Junior and senior year get better. All courses are then completed at Wake Tech, where you have more flexibility with your schedule. The teachers are caring and very willing to help.
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.
The best part about Wake Early College of Health and Sciences is the ability to simultaneously earn your Associates degree in addition to your high school diploma.
