Being at an overcrowded school, may sound bad to some people but over the years of being there I’ve meet a lot of amazing people . The atmosphere of Wando is really nice it’s like everybody is involved into the school spirit some way. What I like about Wando is the fact that they have so many clubs that could fit any body interest and if there’s not a club that fit somebody interests then they can create a new club . Somethings I could change about Wando is having the students voices being heard by the teachers and administrators. What I mean by that is that I want the adults to hear our opinions and suggestions and take it upon consideration . Being at Wando has teach me a lot even though it’s a overcrowded school you’ll learn a lot .!

It’s a very big school, my senior class has almost 1,000 students in it. It gets me ready for the big college I’m going to. There’s so many different types of teachers that you will experience learning from. There’s some that can be very difficult to learn from, sometimes you need to learn on your own. At Wando there’s so many great opportunities, there’s warm and welcoming clubs and sports teams. Their sports teams are the best in the state for almost all of them. There’s classes that you didn’t even think you can take in highschool, only in college. I’m taking classes that could only be offered in college. But you can get college credit for it, so you can save money and graduate college early. There’s such a diversity in students at the school. There’s friends for anyone! It’s overall the best school I’ve been to in my whole life. I recommend it for anyone. It’s truly intimidating at first because of the size of the school.
Overall, Wando is a very good school. Wando has a myriad of academic and extracurricular programs. The teachers and staff are really helpful and make sure you as the student has the best experience while attending Wando. The students are very engaged in school-wide activities, from cheering on football games to getting together to plan homecoming and prom. The only downside of the school is the size of the entire student body. All 4 classes (Freshmen to Senior) totals to almost 4,000 students, not including the staff, so the school is rather crowded. The upside to having a large student body is that you get to meet a lot of new people from different backgrounds. on the other hand, while you do meet people from different backgrounds, there is a huge lack of diversity at Wando. As an African American girl, I feel that I stand out because of how much the school is lacking in POC, not just African Americans, but Latinos, Asians, Middle Eastern, etc.
