I began attending Wenonah High School my 9th grade year.
They have given me many opportunities to meet new people, be more open with different organization and i have to say i have learned so much. I have been in the hospitality and Tourism group since 9th grade and i have attended many different outings to learn about many more careers.. I was given a chance to shadow a veterinarian and i had so much fun learning about what i will be doing in the future.. Wenonah High School gave out a lot of opportunities for us and i am very appreciative of that because within the upcoming months i will be graduating with all the knowledge that i was given.

My experience at Wenonah was good I learned a few things from teachers there. One thing I like from Wenonah was the choir and the drama club. I was very involved in a lot of activities One thing I can say they need to change is the environment of the school and find teachers who teach and not just sit at the desk and look at you and then when you fail they say it’s your fault but in reality it’s there fault because they will give assignments at the last minute also the teachers need to learn to put grades in on time because when it was time for our grades to go in it took teachers forever and the seniors grades had to be in so that our counselor could pick up our diplomas and mak our the failure list and most teachers still waited to the last minute but other than that Wenonah is a good school and you will learn as long as you go to class
Wenonah High School is an outstanding high school. The teachers are caring, supportive and want to see the students succeed. They make learning and easy. What I like about Wenonah is how the principal, counselors, and teachers make it feel like we are one big family. There is nothing I would change about my school because I love it just the way it is.
