Wake Young Men's Leadership Academy 1

All of these parents are writing reviews when they do not know what happens at the school. It is very unorganized! Most of the teachers are good but some are just terrible! 90% of the students come from low income houses and kids who would not normally go to college. Most of the students are very bad. Have terrible mouths and are constantly cursing. The school almost never suspends people even when a kid pushed another kid down the stairs and broke his arm. At least 6 kids in the 10th grade currently failed Chemistry! Even though the school is meant to prepare you for college it does not challenge you very much. The only thing good about the school is the 2 years of college and a few good teachers.Overall the school is not very good although they do have an amazing principal who tries a lot.

I am a Grand-mother of one of the students at the Wake Young Men's Leadership Academy and I was very impressed with the program that we got to attend on Tuesday, March 17th, 2015. The young men and their teacher, Ms. Jeanine Haigler presented a program based on the history of the Holocaust. Each student worked with a partner to build an exhibit with pictures and models. They had these boards and models set up in a circle around the room, and the guests were able to circulate around to each exhibit and learn about it from the students who had created it. It was obvious that each student had a put a lot of time and effort into the research and collection of pictures about their particular subject, and each student was able to teach guests about what their part of the study was about. I learned a lot and I enjoyed meeting the students as well as hearing their presentations. They were courteous and welcoming to each of us. This is a great example of the fine work that is being done at this school. Karen Kauffman Fletcher

My son is in middle school and LOVES this school. He is in his second year and loves the small school atmosphere. His teachers really know him and the principal is excellent. The early college program in high school is very exciting as well!

Love this school! This is my son's second year. He has been highly challenged academically and the staff are very concerned about the students. They care about the students and their success.
