Our School is just so boring. Just like the other person said, "All they talk about is grades and how to get into a better college." They really don't! Our school is literally making us kids drones. I really do not like anything in our school. Also the name, "Wake Early" is literally saying Wake up Early. Because you do have to do this! You have to wake up early because they pick up kids all over Wake County. Trust me parents, if you cared about your kids, you would not send them here.
I currently go to this school and it's not I personally think their are better school's out their then this one. Teachers don't really work with you unless you go to them or go to the counselor which by then the teachers putting you in categories. although I like it being that's it's very diverse and the atmosphere is friendly it would be better if the students could do more and the principal would restrict less. The competitions that certain clubs have went to have lost because their not able to practice when they want or with the group, and how can we take anything serious if they treat us like where little kids, the bottom line is it's nothing big , it's and average school that you have to work 10x harder because it is so much work and things to accumulate before this school will be successful in many ways.
My school is Horrible. It is so boring! The teachers don't do anything fun to teach you. They don't talk about any new ideas or anything. All they talk about is grades and how to get into a better college. The students of the first year of WECHS had the most fun because there were so many classes and so many things to do! Now, there is just a textbook and a teacher and mostly, they talk, but sometimes they explain it. They don't even do a good job of explaining it because I feel so lost! The most fun, in this school, you will have is during Lunch because that is the only time you get to talk. Sometimes, you might have fun during PULSE, but that is only if you have a good instructor during PULSE. Trust me, this is the not the best school for you if you don't like lectures. I only like it a little because I never read textbooks, I just listen to lectures. I did that in the 1st semester of my freshman year for 1 class, and I failed it because there were questions you had to answer at the end of the article, but I never got them right becuase I never read! I only listen to lecture because whenever I read I fall asleep! This is an OK school. But I really do not like this school.
This is our first year at the school, we're extremely pleased with the quality and level of caring & involvement we see from the teachers, size of the school, diversity of the population in every possible way. The kids are very accepting of one another & the academic expectations are high. They get through all of HS in first 2 years & then most move to the college campus for classes. This is a school for those focused on learning & getting to college faster than average, there are no sports but plenty of social activities.
I give the school a 5+. The low teacher:student ratio allows students to achieve above their norm if they are motivated. This school is not for the faint of heart, ones who do not want to put in effort, and one whose parent(s) want them to attend yet they have no desire to attend. Teachers have always been responsive to parent requests; keep parents informed of what's going on. I love the weekly principal message that is given via phone.
I would have to give this school a 3 at best. Teachers do care about their students but mainly their favorites. The teacher student ratio is too low for teachers to have favorites. Students who do not meet their teachers expectations are pretty much handed off to counselors and parents are constantly harrassed.
I only gave it a 4 because it's a new school and they are still working on the schedule with Wake Community College. The the school and the teaches are great. They care about the students. The courses are rigrous. All the core courses are honors. There are no AP but that's because they take college courses while they are in high school. They earned School of Distinction in 2008-2009.
