School Reviews

I am currently attending Wekiva. It gets a bad reputation, but, if you are looking at this school and have a future student or are considering enrollment here- the most important thing to understand is that no one will stand in front of your success here. I am a high honors student and work hard, I have national recognition and am enrolled in Ivy League programs. Wekiva gets me where I need to be. Just like any other school- there are some teachers who aren't the best in my opinion, and there are others who have inspired me to no end. There are some deans and staff who I don't know very well, and there are others who have given me jobs, opportunities, and limitless possibilities. I am not just a good student, I am a fantastic Wekiva High student. Do not let anyone, even the scores you see for the school stop you. Just go, and succeed. There are AP, Cambridge, Honors, etc. programs, and a handful of honor societies, and plenty of college prep programs. I am proud to be a Mustang, from the bottom of my heart.
