Weddington High School gave me the opportunity to spread my wings and expand my knowledge not only about basic math and literature but life skills as well. I came into the school with a negative outlook and no hope. I began to join a club then later was awarded the club Vice President. After being promoted to a higher position in my club, I became very social and excited to go to school. My junior year of High School, I was enrolled in chemistry. Science and Math are difficult subjects for me, but with the help of my teacher I began to acquire chemistry skills easier and faster. Not only did my chemistry teacher teach me the importance of the periodic table but how to grow up as well. In chemistry I learned life skills such as how to prepare for an interview and keep a balance of work and fun. Regardless of what sport, club, or hobby you’re into, you’re bound to thrive at Weddington. Did I mention we’ve won state championships for Football and Track 3 years in a row? Go Warriors!

Weddington High school provides a wide array of opportunities, academic and otherwise. Weddington has many clubs and sports, ranging from the GSA to literary society to the football team. Teachers at Weddington really care about their students, and make an effort to connect with students and teach in a way that is effective for many learning styles. The students at Weddington are also very kind to one another, and make sure to be inclusive. The facilities are very clean as well, and the Weddington janitorial staff works very hard, and the staff is very friendly. One downside of Weddington is that it doesn't have a very diverse population. The majority of students are white, Christian, and affluent. People at Weddington tend to be respectful of the various minority groups at the school, but the school is very overwhelmingly white.
As with any student and school, there are ups and downs to school life. For most, it is the teachers and administration that can make or break the experience. The work load at Weddington can tend to be a bit much (especially when balancing a job and other activities) but it shows the high academic standard all students are held to. Administration tends to be tough, but not on the "problem" children, and doesn't tend to take student voice or opinion into consideration. But most teachers truly do care about their students, and their students opinions, that it makes the experience worth while.
