We have had two children go through WHHS. One child had difficulty and one was a very motivated student. Both did well. The teachers for the most part took an interest in our children's individual needs. The school offers a wide array of activities. The band program is outstanding. The AP and honors classes are rigorous and our children were well prepared for college. Socially, the environment is what you would expect of a high school. Some kids love it and some do not. Access to drugs can be found in any high school (don't fool yourself) but it is not prevalent. The only department I found lacking was the guidance department.

This is a school geared towards college. My children both had gotten into their first choice university from Wayne Hills. I believe that their success in college is due to the foundation in education that they have received from their high school.

very difficult to play sports at this school. If your not Above average athlete, you just can't play here....

This school provides the students with so many opportunities for academic, social, and extra-cirricular success. Throughout my entire high school career I felt I had multiple resources available for me and I could really talk to and learn from my teachers on a different level than I felt other students from other high schools did. I feel fortunate to have graduated from here.

I dont know what everyones talking about. For the most part, all the teachers are amazing. They've definately increased their disciplining. Plus, theres less drugs and violence(other than rare incidents every now and then) This school has definately improved. Everyone's so nice to each other and there's rarely any bullying .The teachers and students bond so easily, so there's rarely any problems

Having two of my children complete their high school education at Wayne Hills, and one beginning his high school experience there, I have had extensive positive experience with Wayne Hills. I find that the school strives for academic excellence, has a cooperative administrative staff, and an innovative teaching staff.

This school is horrible. Don't send your kid here. It would be the worst thing you ever did for your child. Save them and go elsewhere. N;o air conditioning not enough seats for kids and bad food.
