The thing I like most about Wenonah High school is how well my counselor, Mr. Terrance Sykes communicates with the Senior class body. I feel that I can easily communicate with him. Mr. Sykes has made a tremendous impact in my life; with his help I have been able to be admitted into 10 different colleges. He is a person that will go above and beyond to help students succeed. I love knowing that I have someone looking out for me and that I'm not just a number at my school.

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.
It’s cool & the teachers are nice. The students are cool too, they may not talk to you first but whatever. They don’t have pep rally’s. The school is pretty boring honestly.
