24 Parent Reviews for Wando High School

Wando is simply too big. The children are numbers and the teachers don't know all of their students by name. If your child is a high achiever and in the top 10%, they may shine at Wando. But for the average child, they just get lost. It sometimes takes weeks to see a guidance counselor, and the children ...  Read more

This school is not only huge and uncomfortable abut also very bias and solely focused on sports. They offer very little in the arts and academics department, yet what they do offer is the bare minimum, chorus, theater etc.... not much else. The teachers lack spirt and you can tell, as well as the students ...  Read more

Out of all of the magnet and private schools available in the Charleston area, I would rank Wando High School as the very best. They don't hand-pick their students and still manage to have top-notch scores. The honors and AP classes are the most successful in the area. (AP scores are higher than Academic ...  Read more

I have 2 older children that went to Wando and a junior at present. We have always had great things to say about Wando. Besides the obvious beautiful appearence Wando has great teachers and staff. Having a teenager is hard work and having them stay focused and on task is also hard. However, I have learned ...  Read more

I love Wando High School because the teachers, guidance councilors, other faculty care so much about the students.

As a recent graduate of the school, I had an excellent 4 years at the new Wando. It has excellent leadership through the principle, it offers a wide range of classes, and is the best general acceptance public school in South Carolina.
