Student at This School - Grad Year 1996

Overall Rating

The school is so wonderful for the transfer program that I can be prepared for a new school in the fall semester 2012. That is my goal to focus on my classes to pull my grades up. I am deaf lady and use sign language.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

Through out the time I spent in Wake Tech I did enjoy myself with new friends and less boundaries unlike High school. Although most of my time was studying in the Library, I actually liked what classes I had and I never had a moment of constant boredom that brought me to the idea of sleeping.
