    I moved my family to the area in 2009 specifically to attend Wren Middle and Wren High School. One child is a past Wren Middle student and one is currently a WMS student both Honors and AP students with ADHD. Both children have excelled academically and athletically. The staff is extremely caring and respectful. The athletics are above average although we do not have Lacrosse in Anderson County. As a last note we have been very pleased with the focus given to the importance of activities such as Strings Beta Club and National Honor Society. Our family recommends these schools at every opportunity.

    I believe this school is amazing! I went to it for 3 years and no other school in the area holds a candle to it. Only one thing though they need to open up a second traffic lane in the parking lot of the school. For some reason they think its cool to have one for after school but not before .

    So far it has been a wonderful school. We just moved to the area when school started. My only problem is the transportation. It picks up so early and drops off so late. I don't think its just this school I think its all school in this area!
