Be aware of Wayne County High School's moral values. This administration and school board allows pregnant mothers to represent them as role models for homecoming court.

Wayne County has always had a great school system and they have always tried to improve - the only thing I question them on is security / protection of the kids at school.

Coming from a different state, I think this school still needs alot of improvement. There are some teachers who need improvement. When you have kids letting a teacher know they did a problem wrong, then theres a serious problem

I have to agree with the last reviewer. The new adminstration has done wonders for WCHS. As a teacher, I can't say enough good things about our adminstrators. The teachers are doing their jobs and the students are getting the support they need. It is a great place to work and a great place to send your children.

I noticed there has been only one parent review in the past several years. This school has improved dramatically in the past two years. A new administrative team came on board last year and identified the problems of the past and actually ran the school as it should have been run in the past. Our school made AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress) for the first time since No Child Left Behind was begun. There are numerous AP courses, sports of most kinds, and enough clubs and extracurricular activities to involve anyone who wishes to get involved. We already have more teachers with advanced degrees than the state average, and a large percentage of teachers pursuing advanced degrees. The teachers and administration at WCHS actually do care about the students. The incidents of fights and other disruptive behaviors have decreased in the last two school years. The school is great!

They pass students regardless of their 'REAL GRADES' or attendance.There on the verge of having to close the doors. It's horrible!

Since we moved from Long County High I have seen a vast improvement in our son's grade and involvement in school activities. I give Wayne County an A+

I agree with the most of what the above people said about the school. I'm attending the school now, and there are many things that I do disagree with, but all in all I know deep down that the rules are for the best. This year ( 2005-2006 ) is really different from previous year due to the new prinipal. The administrative office has really ened up compared to before, especially about shirt tails. Asst. Principal Gladwin Harper is a really understanding guy that will listen to your side of the story and take a great outlook on everything that may be going on in a given situation. However there is another asst. principal that is just the opposite. I'm not going to expose the name , but she really doesnt listen, and can be fooled and misled easily. Overall this is a very great school system to be involved with.

I am a student that graduated from Wayne County High School in 2004. We had a great year. Some people may not agree with some decisions that Mr. Rowland made but he could not change one rule for one particular person when he has to look out for the well-being of the whole school. I'm not saying that all of his decsions are ini my favor but you have to understand his position. I had a great time. And being under so many restrictions actually helped me become a better person in college today. Most high schools do not care whether you make it out of high school or not but at our school...they did!! csg'04

My son graduated last school year (2004) and had a very successful experience. I disagree with the other reviewer....I think WCHS administration is tops! Mike Rowland is superb...very logical and fair. Usually, parents who have the most negative input about administrators are the parents who have children who don't live by the rules...the ones that have the most citations, etc. for disobeying school rules. Next chapter in their lives will be altercations with the law of the land because they didn't learn to obey the rules in high school!

My son attended this school for 4 years. The teachers there are some of the best educators in the nation. They consistently go above and beyond to help students in many different ways. They are caring, dedicated professionals. The administrative staff however, is seriously lacking.
