Wells High School Reviews

I enjoyed the small class sizes at Wells High School the most. It almost created a sense of one on one learning with the teachers. However, the classes offered in the classroom are limited, which sends many students to online options. In an advancing technological world, this push toward online schooling may be helpful for students in the future, but it is also more difficult to learn and retain information from an online source, such as trying to become fluent in a foreign language through an internet based course. One of the biggest negatives is the constant rotation of teachers. Both online and in person courses experience a high turnover rate with new teachers appearing consistently. Since I've been there, we've gone through more than ten math teachers, multiple elementary teachers, and new administrators nearly every year.

Wells High School is small, close knit, very active in extra-curricular activities, and friendly. It has some wonderful teachers who are strong in the community but it also has a lot of teacher turn over. The education could definitely be improved.
Wells High School is my school. I spend everyday here, and I have really grown to love it, I do truly love this school. There are just some things that needed to change and we modify the way that is needed. The athletics here are absolutely phenomenal, and we love cheering all our teams on! Being a cheerleader at Wells High School gives me an advantage to see how great our school is. We strive for greatness here and we are all one big family. Going to a small school is great in the classrooms and for school activities. We may be little, but we have tons of spirit! GO Wells High!!
