WCHS is a fabulous school. The teachers are very focused on academics. I'm particularly fond of the French program. Mr.Stewart is a great teacher who should be commended for his awesome teaching skills. The Drama program is very awesome,too. In fact, the Thespians are award-winning! This is a bully-free school and no matter what you look like, you will find friends and fit in. I truly love this school!

Great school! They are dedicated to preparing students to graduate and be successful in college or the workplace.

I attended WCHS from 06-10 and I loved every minute of it, especially my last two years. I experienced Mr. Frelick and Mrs. Nettles. Nettles is by far more concerned about the students and school than Frelick was. It is apparent now with the school grade improvement to an A. I experienced the school go from B, to C, to D, to A. Nettles was a great necessary change for the school. If you expect to be challenged in average classes get real. The majority of kids in those classes don't care. The students that succeed in this school are the honor and AP kids. Believe me, I experienced both. My freshman year I was in all "regular" classes and I couldn't deal with the attitude of my classmates so I asked to be moved to all honors...best thing I could've done. By my senior year I was in 3 AP courses and finished with college credit. Of course you have your teachers that need improvement, but most of the educators here are excellent and really prepare you for college. I also recommend joining some sort of extracurricular activity. I was in band all four years and loved it, I also joined NHS and Student Government. Overall, high school is what you make it and WCHS was excellent to me.

I did have my doubts about this school at first but my daughter likes it. She has never had any problems with anyone there. My daughter is in honors classes and she does get homework every single night. She also has quite a few projects due. And if not turned in, she wouldn't get a good grade. The teachers do challenge her. No school is perfect. There are problems in every school. It's just that everyone doesn't put it out there for other people to read. So, yes, I am happy my daughter attends WCHS.

It's a great school if you enjoy your child being assaulted and nothing done about it. Last week my child was intentionally burned by a cigarette lighter. When they pulled my child and the child who left a permanent and disfiguring mark on my child into the office, the assailant claims that my child asked to be burned. The school took his word for it and dissmissed the whole incident.

I love my school. WCHS has many great classes to take and a great amount of challenges. I love the teachers and they actually seem to care about the students. The guidance counselors really help when you talk to them and there is no other school I would want to be at. I'm proud to be a wildcat!

Unfortunately most of the support staff is incompetent, unfriendly and uninformed. You are made to feel like a bother if you call visit. I frequently get answers such as "i believe", "i think,", i'm not quite sure,". It is extremely difficult to get an administrator or guidance couselor to get back to you. They play by make the rules as you go and rules are left to the discretion of the school. Parents are not notified when rules are changed. There are a few really great teachers as in all schools. The curriculum leaves much to be desired. My senior got an A in English, and never had as much as one paper or homework assignment due. I will definately not send my youngest there. The graduation is held at a church. The person who decided this obviously did not think about the religious beliefs of all students.

WCHS could be much better. Not a lot of good teachers, but a few great ones. Below average in every catagory in the FCAT last year. Drugs, fights, racial issues, and a lack of discipline are out of control, and somtimes it seems like the grown ups could care less. Some one would fight and they are back to school in a few days, so this isn't the safest place on Earth, but to WCHS's credit they are doing better then last year to crack down on the violence, so it's no Iraq. I'm transfering to Wiregrass Ranch High in the next semester. WRHS is the closest school to WCHS, and the second school in the town of Wesley Chapel. WRHS can't be much worse, but is prolly a lot better. The education here is alright, but I would most likely get a better one across town.

I think WCHS is a decent school. My daughter is a cheerleader on the Varsity squad. My son will be attending next year as well. I think anything is possible when both the parents and the teachers communicate. I stay on top of the essembler website and receive automatic emails if something needs to be addressed. Parents are just as responsible for educating the children as the teachers are.

This is review is based on my experiences at WCHS. Chemistry AP and English II Honors were taught by permanent substitutes. The mathematics instruction was decent, if the student pursued calculus AP and physics AP. Main problem was the administration's lack of discipline and support of teachers. Did not adequately prepare students for college level course unless AP classes were taken. Class '03

I believe this school really trys to do the right things. I general though I believe we need to hold students more accountable for themselves and stop treating them like babies. There is a terrible cheating problem among students and they think it is ok or funny. Many students are ok with getting just passing grades and I constantly hear ' its too hard' I believe our students need motivation to really learn not just be given grades for meaningless, uninspired work. I know there are great student here also but the vast majority just want the A but don't want to earn it honestly.

Overall very weak math department - lots of homework with no preparation/explanation/teaching involved. Little to no teacher feedback to parents. This is not a very safe school and many of the teachers are leaving because of this.

Safe and friendly environment. Lots of classes and career path focused courses. Great honors and AP courses and caring teachers. Guidance counselors are very difficult to meet with though. Lots of team sports for guys and gals.

I graduated in May 2004 and I loves all four years I spents there. What makes any place great are the people and the teachers and staff at WCHS are those great people. I do agree with a previous comment that athletics play a big part is this school and the more acedemic things couls improve.
