Mepham is a great place to grow up and find where you belong. Some of my favorite, most memorable memories took place at Mepham. I loved going to football and soccer games, as well as school events like Battle of the Classes and So They Think They Can Dance. This is a great, close-knit community to be a part of, but it is important to stay involved- otherwise, you may not get the full Mepham experience. This school is not extremely diverse, however, Mepham is growing the community and is a very accepting and comfortable atmosphere. We host Culture Nights and run several clubs that benefit the community. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to fully experience Mepham High School!

Wellington C Mepham has been a part of my family and extended family for over 50 years. My parents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Brother have all graduated from Mepham. My sister and I currently attend. Mepham is an amazing school with a high ranked academic program with an amazing educators that preps their students to be college ready upon graduation. Their community building environment is equipped with a wide range of clubs, activities, JV and Varsity sports to meet every students needs. Their facility is clean, welcoming and updated inside and out with their recent turn over to turf fields. The school has always had a welcoming aura not only for the students but fore the parents as well. It's a safe and fun environment to be a part of.
I started high school at an Islamic private school in Suffolk County. I had been attending this school since the second grade, and it was a nice school except for the fact that the high school wasn't quite developed. I left the school before my junior year because I wanted to have more extracurricular and academic opportunities. Wellington C. Mepham High School had offered me many opportunities such as clubs and a variety of subjects I could choose to take. The faculty have been nothing but helpful at every step of the way, which was especially important for me because I was taking the SAT the year I joined and then I would be applying to colleges the year after. To sum it all up, the two years I've spent at Wellington C. Mepham High School have been phenomenal and I will definitely never forget my time there.
