WP Davidson High School Reviews

My experience at Davidson wasn’t the best, however, my class made it worth the time. Being in the EPIC program many of the math/science teachers I had were very rude and not the best at teaching. They wouldn’t even help the people struggling in their class, considering the fact that those weren’t easy subjects at the honors/AP level. My senior class teachers made my final year great though. Those were the best teachers I had while being at Davidson. In order to see more success in the EPIC program I would highly suggest that Davidson get some Math and Science teachers that actually want to teach and be there for their students because that is basically what the program is geared towards-challenging math and science courses.

W.P Davidson High School is a great school. The curriculum is challenging which makes it worth it. I am in all honors classes. They have prepared me for college in many ways. I became more organized and responsible. They make you grow up in order to make it in the real world. There is an EPIC program that focuses on students who want to further their studies in engineering, computer science, or biomedical fields. These classes consist of more science and math classes. The administration makes sure that the students are safe and given the best possible learning experience. Best of all they make sure that you leave Davidson High School college.
If you are looking for a school that has teachers that want you to pass, this is the school to go to. It has many opportunities for different people and they have different class types; regulars, honors, and IB. The students are very nice and also, they will help you with anything you need. Apart from the students and teachers, the school is very clean and it makes you feel like home. If you need help with anything, the teachers will find a way to have tutoring after school so you can have extra practice.
