A Great School rating of 6 out of 10 for Wellington High school what the heck is going on there? Why did the rating dive to 6/10? Who's accountable? Too many enrollments from low income families (currently @45%), just being candid here. We just moved from Palm Beach Gardens for the better school district Binks Elementary, Landings middle 10/10 then what in the hell is going on with Wellington High school 6/10? . Administration needs an immediate course correction and get the rating up to 7/8/9! Come on district you are trending in the wrong direction.
Horrible, working on getting my son transferred to a different school, hopefully out of the Palm Beach County district altogether
I had great expectations for this school, believing it is one of the better high schools in the area. The school scores aren’t as high as I thought they would be and it doesn’t’ seem like enough children are college ready when they graduate. On the positive, the AICE program seems to be good and overall the kids seem to be nice.On the negative, my child, who is very quiet and respectful, is often times verbally abused by the staff and teachers. Also, the band booster, which is parent run, is terrible. The moms who appoint themselves as the leaders are very cliquish and are downright mean. I tried to help out by volunteering and had to endure offensive remarks and often times was just plain ignored, like a scene right out of the movie mean girls. This is a very shocking thing to experience from adults, which is a shame because the kids in band all seem very nice. It’s no wonder more than half the parents do not pay the fair share.
Regular classes are a complete joke. You don't even need to study or even pay attention in class to earn an A. In 9th grade I had to take all regular classes except one, and let me say it was a total waste of my time. I would have graduated with many more rewards and credits than I got if I wasn't forced to take the regular ones the first year. Classes are so easy that my 1st year I barely spoke English, yet passed all my classes with better marks than your average WHS kid. The next year I was still below average in my communication in English, yet again, I have passed my AICE classes. Same goes for the rest of the next 2 years. The school is completely ran down -- cockroaches, bathroom stall broken hinges, sinks that don't even work properly, vandalized bathroom doors, paint peeling off, etc. The teachers are given no authority at all unfortunately. They are constantly given attitude by kids, talked smack about, asked questions they shouldn't even be asked, yelled at, oppressed, everything along those lines. Teachers should in no way be treated that way, and it disgusts me. It was heartbreaking and unpleasant to witness the majority of classes being like that. The school has no discipline. As for the staff, endless times they have made mistakes, which is okay. However, they never bothered to solve the issue themselves, and always blamed it on me. In the end, it had to be me who had to take responsibility and the consequences for their mistakes, and just shut my mouth because even if i spoke up, I'd be ignored. And let me clarify that I was by far the only student to whom that sort of thing has happened to. The food from the cafeteria shouldn't even be called food. It's so bad, that all you end up eating are bags of chips or a handful of cookies to ease the hunger.- A student
