I really enjoy Wethersfield High School. Overall, the quality of education is very good, and the teachers are generally friendly. The teachers that I have had are understanding and willing to work with their students to help them learn and understand the material. I've never had an issue with the administration personally. There are opportunities for students to challenge themselves in classes that are more difficult, like honors classes, AP classes, and even dual enrollment classes with UConn. The building itself was recently renovated and it creates an environment which is comfortable and eases the learning process for students. While I'm not in a bunch of clubs, the ones I am in mean a lot to me, so I invest a lot of time into the clubs and their activities. The advisors are great people. I will miss this school once I graduate.

Wethersfield is an overall good school. The students and teachers there are very friendly. I give it a three star rating because there is a lot of drug and Juul users in my school, and at this point more than half of the school uses drugs. We have had 2 fights this year so far and the quarter hasn't even ended. Education is really good, students are overall dedicated in their work. Wethersfield has a lot of clubs and activities that a lot of students participate in and enjoy.
I am a Senior in WHS and I grew up in Wethersfield my whole life so I may be a little bias but the teachers are great, the environment is great, the security is amazing. I feel safe every day I walk in and out of school. When I hate late night games, I never fear for my safety and being close to a city, I know sometimes that is a concern for my parents, but that has never once been an issue. Now, as I am reaching the end of my Senior Year, although I feel nervous about leaving, I feel real for my future.
