To say I am horrifically unsatisfied would be the understatement of the century. The Western Wayne administration in its entirety should be ashamed of themselves.

The problem with WWHS is that the Board of Education has been filled with former teachers and family members of teachers. The budget has thus gone to so many pay increases that there's dozens of trash cans in hallways to catch leaking rainwater. Teacher salaries begin at nearly $40,000 and jump to well over $70,000, with health care and pensions that make the annual package worth over $107,000 a year, where the typical family income of the taxpayers is $33,000. You would think we'd have terrific educators, but our SAT scores are in the 475 range across the board. Teachers joke about taking years off from teaching in which they still come to work but basically shut down. I have three kids in elementary school, and we're considering a move to one of the superior local districts. I wouldn't mind paying high school taxes if it went to the kids. Instead we've created lazy teachers, many of whom are related because of nepotism hiring practices. Look at the teacher roster for yourself and ask why brothers and sisters, and husband and wives, are the most qualified hires. The budget is so strained by salaries that many teachers give extra credit to kids for bringing in school supplies.

This school has really gone down hill - especially in the last few years. They have mismanaged money with constructing the new elementary school and now are making poor choices with the revenue they still have - they opted to hire a new vice principal instead of continuing music education, and have failed miserably managing students

I really don't like this school, I extremely hard to learn in a environment that most students create.
