Wendell High School Reviews

Wendell High School suffered from what I'm sure most schools suffer from, being favoritism. Athletes and really smart kids are preferred and while being in those exclusive groups is great, it's difficult watching other people struggle because they are not given a chance. Everyone learns at their own pace and if that pace does not match that of their peers, then there isn't much to do to gain recognition regardless of effort being put in. Coaches are especially biased towards their players and not much is done to get to know others. Their were few teachers with the "get ready for college" mentality and they were great. However the majority of the teachers were bored and indifferent to the students' interests.

I enjoy the small town atmosphere of our high school. Because there are so few students, we are able to work closely with our teachers. This also allows us to be able to participate in many more activities because there is not as much competition for the spots. The main issue which I have with Wendell is the lack of funding and support from the community. Because of this our facilities, suffer, as do our sports as a natural consequence. We also cannot higher high ranking teachers because of the lack of funding to pay them. So we are stuck with mediocre teachers that don't want to be here. Over all I feel cheated in my education because of a lack of challenging courses and opportunities to prepare for college.
My experience at Wendell High School has been something like a roller coaster. Like all high school students I have had my ups and downs from the classes I take, to the friends that I have gained throughout the years of attending this school. Although there are downs, this school has made sure to make everyone feel like one big happy family. Often of times when there is any kind of crisis, big or small, we get together as a school and discover a way to solve the issue. When any of our extracurricular teams or clubs make it to a big tournament, we gather everyone in the school and celebrate it together. So basically, in short words what I am saying is that I wouldn't a single day that I had in this school. Simply because everyday at this school has shaped me into the person that I am.
