Academics are good they make sure that a child has good grades first always and foremost. Sports are offered like basketball, football, softball, volleyball, and baseball. The girls basketball team in 2012 went 14-0. The boys football team went 8-1. The bathrooms are not good. The whole school is just nonchalant basically.

My review for wcu is that it is student straining.Their academic programs are tough on those who need it the most.Their extracurricular programs are not really reaching out.Their awards are only for people who are improving.Their bathrooms have to be the worst.Hardly any parents are involved in most programs.
