I love how the teachers here really do care about you! They create an open and fun environment to learn in! Although, unlike every school they do have some imperfections. Some of the teachers aren't the best or are hard to understand and don't understand what some of us can do and what our limits are. And to be honest no person is perfect and knows everything. But, otherwise it's an amazing high school!
Review Weddington High School
I have been going to weddington schools since 2nd grade, and my experience keeps getting better every year. My expire ce at weddington high school has been really good, the school is very encouraging to join clubs, sports and are welcoming to any other school activities. Our sport teams are very good, and they are very fun to attend due to our high ranking and great players. We have an amazing art program including many types of art classes, dance,theatre, and chorus as well as band. Besides losing one of my favorite principles and the list of a principle due to her bad decisions, I have loved this school and I feel so welcomed every day and blessed that I have the ability to train my brain here in such a great environment with great classmates and great teachers to help guide me.
Very, good school. Many teachers say it's the closest you can get to a private school. There is always someone ready to help you in every corner of the school, and the Students are great! Great academics and the school spirit is phenomenal.
