    Administration & Policies: I wouldn't say that our administration members seem overly approachable. There have been many times when I contemplated going to guidance or to an administrator but decided not to because it's not something that happens a lot at our school. I think that is largely due to an understaffing issue. The guidance counselors seem to be extremely busy all the time, making them seem unapproachable.

    Sports & Fitness: As stated before, sports are largely important at this school. I had the pleasure of playing varsity women's lacrosse for four years and it created some of my happiest memories. Most athletes at the school would say the same for their respective sport. The coaches are usually teachers at our school so it makes for a more personal experience because we already know the coaches from school. The equipment and fields are definitely well kept.

    Teachers: My overall experience with the teachers at Weddington has been a relatively positive one. I have enjoyed the majority of my teachers both for their teaching methods and their approachable natures. I've never felt too uncomfortable to ask any of my teachers a question and I feel that the majority of them are pretty encouraging and helpful.

    Extracurriculars: There are a fair amount of clubs available but they are not widely enjoyed nor are they very representative of the interests of the student body. Sports are very popular here and they do a very good job at making those easy to participate in.

    Teachers: In the College Prep and Honor courses most teachers were adequate.

    AP teachers were overall very good. AP scores proved it. In AP courses under performing teachers had been removed from teaching.There are still some teachers that are ineffective...but most of those get weeded out eventually.

    Not happy with the change over to the 10 point scale from the 7 point scale. This will not be retroactive , so it can effect GPA and class ranking unfairly.
