The educational experience has been very good for my rising senior. Challenging courses, great teachers, excellent principal, etc.
It is the GUIDANCE DEPT. that is severely lacking. Clearly they have forgotten what they are there for and always seem bothered when help is needed. The only positive in the dept. is Ms. Bowers and Mr. Mccluskey the head of the dept.
For the past 3 years all that we have heard was they were too busy helping the seniors, now my student is a senior and is being told to wait. Sadly they are needed in order to get transcripts and information for college. Better off doing your due diligence yourself.
The students are treated with respect and the students live up to the expectations that the teachers and administration have set forth. With such a great environment to learn the students treat each other in a similar way.
Very nice campus, opened in 2000. Has about 1350 students and 75 teachers. Really nice teachers, high achiving students. Has great parent involvment and awesome clubs and sports. The faculty truly cares about you and your education. If you attend Weddington you will have an amazingnhigh school experience and an idea of your future.
This school is challenging and competitive in academics. My children have been able to get the classes they wanted. Athletic teams are also competitive and respected. State Champs at XC, baseball, tennis. Great clubs, something for everyone.
I went to several schools all over the east coast, Weddington High was defiantly one of the better public schools I attended... Awesome reputation, minus some of the stuck up students, and staff who think having a German car and a million dollar house is a necessity to become a valuable member of society. Overall one of the best schools in metro south Charlotte!
WHS is a fantastic school. I find staff and students top flight. I have had one child go through WHS and is now in college( made Deans list first year) I have another child that is rising Sr and my third child is rising Soph. This school is very committed to developing children in all areas. If you are unhappy with this school, you should remember you get as good as you give!
I am currently a freshman enrolled in Weddington High School, also taking three years at Weddington Middle School, and I could not ask for a better high school experience. The teachers are friendly, the community is great, and there are plenty of activities, such as various sports, an upcoming JROTC program, and many, many clubs in which students can use to have fun, or improve themselfs.
