Wayne Early Middle College High School Reviews

The teachers were very relaxed and acted like friends rather than teachers. There were many opportunities to be involved outside the classroom in extracurriculars, and the inclusive environment greatly reduced bullying. Cliques didn't really exist. Everyone was friends. The guidance counselor was supportive and readily available to help us. However, the pressure to receive our associate's degrees without taking a fifth year caused psychological issues for many students.

Wayne Early Middle College High School is an excellent school for upcoming high school students to have a smooth transition into a college experience. Aside from a school sports team, students are provided with everything one could expect from a regular high school experience, as well as the opportunity to get their Associate's degree and get used to the qualitative expectations of your average college professor. The only drawbacks I'd consider the school to have would rely on the individual students themselves. Specifically, for students who aren't very determined to do well in their college courses, especially in their junior year, their GPA will suffer accordingly. Ultimately, what one aims for from their experience at WEMCHS will determine what they'll get out of it, both good and bad. The combination of taking all high school honors courses, obtaining a free Associate's degree, and having access to an abundance of four-year university knowledge should not be wasted.
I loved the teachers there. They have great compassion, teaching styles and overall character. The only issues I find is that a lot of amazing teachers have chosen to go elsewhere amidst the time I have been there. In fact, all but one of the teachers I had freshman year have gone on to teach at different schools. Now I am not sure why but I know something must be up. Overall though, I had an incredibly enriching and pleasant time at the school and have grown so much as a person just from being there.
