Wellsville High School Reviews
Rating 3.5 out of 5 22 reviews
We are very small so it’s like a family! Don’t have too many opportunities due to the small environment, town, and school!!
I absolutely love my school. Being from such a small town, each class is very small. My class has seventeen kids in it and we are all very close, like one big happy family. Something that I would change about my school would be that being from such a small school, we do not have as many options to choose from for things such as classes and activities. My school offers very few sports and there are people that would love to participate in other kinds of sports.
We had a few students in my class smoking Jules during class last year and a kid who had mental issues was hit by another kid during a game of dodgeball then when the kid got back in the hit the person who hit him when he picked him up and threw him on the ground. The child with mental issues was blamed. But some of the teachers are really nice and supportive.
I hate it. Most of the students are out of control and get away with bullying. Condoms have been passed out in the hallways. Most of the students have done drugs and brought other illegal substances.
Wellsville-Middletown R-1 is a very small rural school district. Overall, teachers seem to leave as quickly as possible. It's a backup job for teachers :( . Since the school is so small, everyone knows everyone's names, which is great and makes it easy to make friends.
There are always extracurricular and many social gatherings to go to and become involved!
I love this school and the atmosphere of it!
The teachers are caring and do go above and beyond to help make sure we understand our lessons and are doing just fine in class.
This school is very safe and I've never felt unsafe here. In light of recent school shootings the school installed doors that lock automatically and only open for faculty/staff. Visitors must be buzzed in on camera by office staff.
Our school is nice because it is so small. The only issue with that is everyone knows your business if you aren't careful.
All of the teachers are good at their jobs and friendly. The only teacher I've struggled with is the High School Math teacher, only because his teaching style is not something that aligns with the way I learn.
Most teachers are great, friendly, knowledgeable, and just fun to learn from and talk to.
The build is structurally sound and the technology is quite good. There are only a couple college prep classes, but several classes offer duel credit. Tutoring is offered twice a week. Buses are in terrible condition and the routes are long and unfairly mapped.
The students aren't that varied and have lots of common interests, a plus personally for me. However, there was a lot of social problems, myself bullied all the way up to 9th grade. I saw a lot of it going on around me as well, but we all eventually grew out of it, despite the damage it can cause.
What limited classes that were offered were well taught and mostly fun. My biggest disagreement with the school was the lack of a sex-ed class. I left high school not knowing anything about my body and how to take care of it, other than the occasional "abstinence" comments.
I felt well prepared for what was given to me. However, I see a lot of people not taking advantage of what was offered. Being a small school, not much was offered, but it was mostly quality what was.
Bring your own lunch. Most meat sandwiches barely seemed to be cooked through all the way, and very rarely are warm. There are some good dishes, that I heard were taken away thanks to Mrs. Obama.
