Weddington High School Reviews

Weddington High School has been an overall great experience for me and I couldn't be happier with where I have ended up. Weddington has provided me with four years of amazing teachers and administrators along with sports, in which I participated in one every season of the year, and has prepared me for college and what lies ahead of me. The school consolers are one of the best things about this school. They were always there to help whether I needed help with picking classes, questions about college and scholarships, or just needed someone to talk too. In my four years at Weddington I made close bonds with a lot of my teachers and it is definitely a school that I will come back and visit during and even after my college years.

Weddington is an amazing school. The sports, athletic, and art programs are very well rounded. The school as a whole has a very high academic standards and continually strives to be the top ranked high school. Weddington administration do their best to provide maximal opportunities to become a better student and athlete. The students here all work very hard to be inclusive and develop a healthy learning atmosphere. At sports events our cheering section is electrifying. Overall Weddington is the best high school I've been to.
Weddington High School excels in almost all areas. The administration--although it has changed hands many times during my period here--maintains a strong hand over the school, but still ensures that students are involved in decision making. Principle Dr. Jones treats his position similar to how you may view a presidency, guidance counselors and fellow assistant principles as the legislative and judicial branches, and the students play citizens. Guidance counselors have began to promise preparedness for our futures, and assistant principles are active in their roles by keeping the school running smoothly with their designated students. Although we do not elect our staff and administration, there is common support and pride in being a Warrior.
