Wp Davidson High School Reviews

This school was borderline out of control while I attended. The teachers were underpaid and thus could not afford to expend energy to care about the disarray that was every single classroom, the kids all came from depressing backgrounds and home lives in which the school either couldn't help or didn't care to help, and the only thing that this school had going for it was the music programs and the robotics teams. However, if you are unfortunate enough to be a low GPA student and not be apart of any teams or organizations, you are prone to falling by the way side.

I am graduating as an IB scholar and an EPIC major, which is the engineering track. There are many opportunities available at this school for all levels of academics. They have BEST robotics, and regularly win at both local and regional tournaments. I have been challenged academically, and have enjoyed my time here!
I love my High School very much.

WP Davidson is amazing! This school is very diverse in every aspect imaginable. There are many educational oppurtunities at this particular PUBLIC school! These oppurtunities include the International Baccalaureate program (history and english/literature), the EPIC program (engineering, math, and science), AP classes, honors program, advanced and honors classes available to non-honors program students, and regular highschool classes that are receiving the best education, statistically, in the county.

Davidson offers a variety of clubs and organizations that I recommend and en outages students to create and run new clubs.

The teacher at Davidso,n that I have had, have been incredible! I have not only passed tests and classes like some students would feel they are only doing, but I am expanding my curiosity and interests beyond that of the classroom because of my teachers. They have allowed me to become more aware of the world I live in whether it be within the environment, politics, businesses, career options, and life in general. I have developed several passions for things such as politics, math, environment, fine arts, etc, just by listening to and having intellictual conversations with my teachers.

I love my school and would never want to repeat my 4 years anywhere else if I had the chance. GO WARRIORS
