Wayne School of Engineering (WSE) is a great school and offers pretty excellent courses. It partners with the community college to provide students with an opportunity to get their associates degree, and has many fun teachers and class on campus. WSE also has a very laid back environment, with project and team based learning to help not only better of education, but our social skills as well. Extracurriculars and Scholastic clubs are plentiful throughout the school grounds. WSE does lack some organization and communication skills for the best classes to take (students are given the choice), but overall it is a great school.

The Wayne School of Engineering has challenged me more than any other school I have attended. I feel it has prepared me for college and my career. Not only do they focus on education but also giving back to the community by requiring grade level projects summarizing our volunteering in the community. The teacher I have had in my courses are extremely helpful and caring. Making sure that you understand a topic, and if not they go the extra mile to help you. These classes also have technology based learning with assignments given online and VR sets. Giving a modern learning experience. Along with this, you are also able to take college courses at the local community college given many of the students the opportunity to graduate high school with their associates degree. Another way that they are properly preparing their students for college and their career.
WSE is a great school that prepares the students extremely well for college. Taking high school classes in middle school and starting at the community college as a freshman definitely makes me feel more prepared for university. Not only is the course material more advanced, the way it is presented by teachers introduce students to more advantageous learning styles to suit their individual preferences. Electronic elements and classroom setups increase collaborative learning and better understanding of concepts.
