Wekiva is a mediocre school. The solutions administration comes up with are ineffective and illogical half of the time. Teachers don’t care about their student’s progress, most of them just hand out busy work until it’s time for standardized testing (which no one is prepared for). There’s a small few who seem to really be interested in their students’ development, but like I said, you’re lucky to get them. Charboneau, Kelly, Kellen, and Furo are some of the most interested teachers we have. I’d like to see more teachers like them. Football is the only sport Wekiva cares about, as all the other sports are overlooked and underfunded. I’d like to see more than 10 people at games (all of them being parents.) School spirit isn't as great as it could be, which makes it hard to enjoy your four years here. Diversity is definitely an A, which I’ve always liked about Wekiva. Overall, it’s a below average school. Poor felt too critical, though.

The facilities and teachers are alright, but they aren't as good as I thought they would be. A lot of the teachers don't really care about teaching the students properly, they just pile on work to keep us busy. They really start teaching us curriculum around the time for standardized testing. But, some of them have a real interest in educating kids. Those few teachers are some of the best teachers that i've ever had, they care deeply about the curriculum and the well-being of their students. The facilities are also very dirty and unkept, especially the bathrooms. To add on, the administrators seem unable to keep the students under control and the decisions that they come up with are very poor and not well thought out. They think that since a few kids have run amuck because of their lack of control, they should impose regulations/punishment on every single student in the school (even though the "regulations" haven't really done anything, the kids easily found a loophole/solution).
All through my four years of going to Wekiva secondary school was exceptionally aware of how to keep improving the earth. The staff was cordial and never wavered to go well beyond for their understudies. There were numerous assets in every case promptly accessible for the understudies. Additionally I adored the assorted variety and how included the children were in their clubs, the chief was decent to everybody she saw and you could see that she really thought about the understudies, one thing that I would change about my previous school would be the nourishment that we gotten and, I would love it if the instructors got the chance to show the class material in their own specific manner, in such a case that they figure out how to cause the children to comprehend the educational program I feel as though they should instruct it that way.
