5 star. I have a child that graduated from wehs 2 year ago. One that will graduate this year as valedictorian and 1 child in 8th grade. I love this school. I would recomend it to anyone.

I attended WEHS, as well as my children. I am very proud of this school and I think the quality of an education you recieve from these teachers are top notch. The faculty truly are interested only in the student's best interests.

Love the school but maybe now that you have more classes you should worry about getting enough books for the kids to use. Ones that have ADHD need to carry books home to study and keep. Mr. Stancil is doing a good job so far. Don't care for the same sex classes, doesnt seem to be working out to well. guess we will see how that goes when report cards come home though. Overall a great school, just a few kinks that need to be worked out just like any other school.
