Wayne High School Reviews

There are some really amazing teachers at the school who help students grow, but there’s others who want to crush you and destroy your dreams. Bullying is a huge problem undelt with and anyone of the LGBTQ+ community is judged. The education system is average at best with small spirts of genius, but also a lot of terrible things. Sports are also held on such a high pedestal over everything else. Their theatre and music programs are put on the back end, even though many students love it so much. So many people have so many different talents that are undernourished and thrown to the side. Everyone’s talents and abilities should be considered to help students grow as people. Cookie cutter teaching methods don’t work for everyone. Wayne High School has a lot to overcome, but the school isn’t as bad as some of the other schools in the area.

I enjoy the teachers and staff. The education system is set up well. It has a great English department. The school has a good amount of clubs or activities with different interests. Also the school has small, but not too small, class sizes. Great community to live in!
This school provides a safe learning environment, and the majority of the teachers there are hard-working, welcoming, and genuinely excited to be there. However, there seems to be a lack of acknowledgement of diversity. Many students say racist, homophobic, misogynistic, etc. statements that often get ignored.
