Wayne School of Engineering Reviews

Wayne School of Engineering is a STEM based school that is very hands-on. I have been going here since I was in the 6th grade, and although they challenge you, it is well worth it. This school has done wonders for my education, and I know that if I were to have gone somewhere else, I would not be close to having my associates degree as a senior in highschool, or even have as high of grades as I do. WSE is very hands-on, and deals with a lot of group activites. There is never a class where you are just stuck doing bookwork all of the time, and there is not many times where you aren’t actively doing a project that incorporates other students and other classes. There is not much that I would change about my school because in the end, it helped me become a great student and a person I am proud to be.

I hope that the Scholastic program gains more support because it's a wonderful opportunity for students. Small group of students means very relaxed, personal classroom atmosphere. Some of the teachers are great, others not so much (like at most schools.) There is a big push for students to get their Associates from the local community college, which means they can take the college classes for less money, but it also means there are not many electives offered at the high school itself.
If you take advantage of the opportunities available, you can obtain your associate's degree before graduating high school. You can also stay a 5th year to complete the associate's degree if you prefer to pace yourself. There are WSE middle school sports and high school sports are partnered with GHS. Maybe one day the school will have its own campus and HS sports teams.
