    "Wake Young Women's Leadership Academy is an Early College programs that allows students to achieve their academic goals. Our mascot is an OWL and also an acronym which stands for Outstanding Woman Leader. I like that all the classes are considered to be honors classes. It allows students to challenge and push ourselves. The teachers have a great one on one connection with students, they know when a student is doing poorly in her classes and they seek to take action. We are one, we uplift and help each other. We also have a lot of connections that are useful. We do a lot of community work and go on meaningful trips every once in a while. We are getting prepared for college while still be able to feel like a high school student. There isn't really anything that I don't like about my school, everything runs smoothly and is well thought out."

    "WYWLA is a fairly new school and I'm part of its second graduating class ever. It focuses a lot on leadership, women's empowerment, and college readiness. There are only 28 girls in my grade. We all know each other well and get one on one attention from teachers, which really helps academically. Overall it was a great experience and would reccomend it to other girls."

    "My experience at being at the Wake Young Women's Leadership Academy is amazing. It is a very diverse school and it prepares you for college during your junior and senior year of high school. We are an early college school, meaning that while you're a junior and senior on campus, you will be taking college classes along with your high school classes. All of our high school classes are honors, meaning that you will graduate with strong work ethics. The academy pushes you to your limit. One downfall about the school, is that the school does not have their own sports team. In order for the students to become active, we are partnered up with another high school that is down the street from us. The students are allowed to try out for any team they would like. The Wake Young Women's Leadership Academy is outstanding because it challenges the students to do the best they can!"

    "The main reason why I like Wake Young Women's Leadership Academy is because I get free college credits, books, and experience. For the last two years of high school we go to Saint Augustine's University, and take college courses there. I already have 20+ credits from just last year. This saves me money, and I appreciate that. Other then that it is pretty basic. What I don't like is that we do not have many options for clubs and classes. For athletics we have to go to Broughton High School, but I don't mind doing that. I would say that this is not a school for an average person who wants a normal high school experience. We do not have many events, and people here do not have as big of a school spirit as you might find in a normal school. But those free college credits do ad up, and in my opinion it is definitely worth it."
