While I was enrolled in Weir High school, I found the theater department to be very welcoming and enjoyable. I also liked the availability of early access to online college classes.
However, I wish to see the school prepare their students for college more efficiently. I also believe that the lunches need to have more options for dietary restrictions.

Weir High School is a school where you will feel involved if you want to be. They involved everyone when events are coming up. The teachers are amazing. They help you and take time out of there day to make sure you're all caught up on anything they are doing in class. If you live close to Weir High School i'd recommend going. I'm going to forever miss that school when I leave, as well as the teachers.
Weir High is a great place to make friends! There are a lot of friendly students who attend Weir High. The reasoning behind the "average" rating is because the teacher could be more caring about educating the students and making sure every student understands the curriculum rather than going through a lesson.
