Weddington High School NC Report Card
Dear Parents, Family, Friends, and Community Members,
Weddington High School is very excited to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! Thank you for visiting our school website and for taking the time to invest in the education of the children in the Weddington community. It is our goal to create a safe, challenging learning environment which allows students to reach their potential and become respectful, responsible, future ready students.
Once a year, the State of North Carolina provides us with updates on our school’s achievements through the North Carolina School Report Card. This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. There also is information about how our school measured against state and federal targets and the number of suspensions and expulsions in our school. Report data is available for our school district and for the state’s education system as a whole. I encourage you to spend time studying this expansive report.
I am very proud of our students, staff, and community for their hard work and of the culture of excellence that we have established here at the home of the Warriors. Through teamwork, commitment, and hard work, Weddington High School was awarded a School Performance Grade of A and met composite growth expectations as determined by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. Students at Weddington High School consistently outperform their peers in the district and across North Carolina on state administered exams and several measures of academic performance. Additionally, in 2021, Weddington High School was recognized as having one of the highest graduation rates in the state of North Carolina with a graduation rate of 96.6%. The class of 2021 was proud to have 90% of students attending a 4 year college, 7% attending a 2 year college, 1% entering the military, and 2% entering into the workforce. We are working hard to continue holding students to high expectations, supporting them along the way, and celebrating their successes when they achieve their goals.
