I liked how all the teachers knew you and always asked how you were, you could tell that they were all interested in what you were doing and how you were doing. One thing I would like to see change is the ability for us to take summer classes online if we would like. I know that a number of the schools around us allow this, I would of liked to get some of my core classes done, so that I could take more AP and CCP classes.

Personally I love Waynedale High School, but I guess that is only my opinion. One thing I enjoy about Waynedale is the relationships you are able to build with the staff members, because they are all like your second family getting you ready for the real world in a way. Waynedale is a very small school; however, having a small school means you know everyone. There are a few people that you never meet, but that is because they are always on the opposite side of the building for the most part everyone knows one another. When I was a freshman I will be honest I was completely scared to go to high school, but the upperclassmen were not as intimidating as other people made them out to be. Maybe in a bigger school the seniors rule the roost, but at Waynedale it is certainly common for each grade level to get along with each other. I would not change anything about my school I grew up in, and I can say I am proud I went to Waynedale.
My experience at Waynedale High School has been interesting. The staff is always looking for ways to improve our education. Each teacher takes each student's learning abilities into consideration, thus extinguishing extra difficulties. Also, it is noticeable that all social groups intermingle, creating an environment where nobody feels out of place. Besides the good factors of Waynedale, changes could be made like updating facilities. All of the buildings in the district are outdated and falling apart. In my eighth grade year alone, the ceiling in the lobby had leaked water more than once, windows fell out of their frames, and lockers either barely locked, or were seemingly glued shut. The high school is a year round heater. Students get overheated. This leads to the loss of concentration, irritation and the occasional person who passes out. I have sweated my way through my nearly year and a half of high school, except for the two weeks that the heaters broke last winter.
