Two of my children graduated from Wellington High School and my youngest will graduate in May 2007. The principal is excellent and so are the teachers. I could go on and on about the good academics and extra curricular activities, but the simple truth is - when a school has a principal who actually likes and respects the students - you can't go wrong!
Our daughter graduated from WHS in 2006. The quality of academic atmosphere put her in a fantastic position for college prep. Cannot say enough good things about Cherly Alligood, Principal and Jane Brown, in Guidance. Loved WHS!
This is my son's senior year at WHS. We have been thrilled with his education here. The vast majority of teachers really care about their students' success and go the extra mile on their behalf. After-school Math Lab was an excellent aid for him. Our experience with sports was also favorable. The sports teams are only as good as those who participate on them. We feel this is a safe school, with an over-all positive attitude towards molding today's teenager into tomorrow's young adult. In our opinion, they've earned their 'A' rating. Bravo!
Wellington is a great school full of learning opportunities. The teachers and staff are great and the environment is inviting.
Great extracurricular activites, great parent and teacher involvement.
I would say this school is very good but, the experience we had while our sons were there could have been better. we thought that the counselors, and teachers were not qualified to do the job they were doing. Apparently most of the teachers are getting bad reputations because of those other teachers that have power trips. Please note we loved the school 6 years ago when we first moved to wellington but its not the same any more.
This school even though it has a great image, the inside is less than perfect. There has been fights in class in front of teachers, muggins etc..and this is all swept under the rug, so long the image is not tainted. I would bet that more than half the teachers would not be able to recieve a 2.0 if they were to attend their own classes. The school is not really a safe place. I dont need 150 words to say that this school is not 'A' rated for REAL. I hope to pull my kids out soon.
The academic programs are good. The football program is very disorganized and the coaches are clueless. Other than the football program the school is very good.
It's a good school, but very large. This is a double edged sword giving the kids a lot of opportunities, while also increasing the probability of missing out on opportunities. For example, in a school with over 3,000 students, only the very best get to be on a lot of the sports teams. Teachers vary, some are superb, others forget that they are to teach not promote their personal agendas.
