Weehawken High School Reviews

Weehawken High School was the best high school that I had ever attended.
The school could do to show more expectation in all of their students in order to increase the overall academic growth of all students who attend. While the school has recently attempted an increase in AP course participation, which is a positive improvement, these efforts seem to be lacking in the heart of improving the student learning experience, seemingly more concerned with raising the school's state and national ranking for the sake of raising funding and town property values.
If additional educational resources are added and grown AND consistent care towards every students' growth shown in every class, then the new improvements can truly make Weehawken High School a great school.

I liked that the school was fairly small and everyone knew each other in some way. The teachers were generally nice, but of them were really useless and the office people were usually mean and rude. Some of the office people often gossiped about students which was really childish and wrong. Some advisers were really helpful and nice but it was often better to figure things out on your own, especially for college.
Weehawken High School has changed through my years learning there. Last year the student board decided to renovate the school by installing new doors, new lockers, and a brand new courtyard in the front entrance of the school. Everyone in the community is amazing, fantastic, helpful, and, most importantly, your friend.
