Please stop mixing this school up with the REAL WADE HAMPTON IN GREENVILLE-Home of the Generals and proud of it including our Fine Arts Center! Not many people know that there are actually 2 schools in the state with the same name of Wade Hampton.

My daughter has special permission to attend Wade Hampton for theater at the Fine Arts Center which is next door. She has only been going for 2 years but she soon found out that the theater program provided at Wade Hampton is even better than the Fine Arts Center! Their theater program grown, improved, and is recognized at a state level. My daughter loves Wade Hampton and all the wonderful people she has met there.
