    This is a great school! Weeki Wachee High School has students feeling secure with their ZERO tolerance policy to making students feeling threatened harassed or bullied. The administration the lunch faculty and the teachers are all kind. One problem with the teachers are some have really easy/lazy classes due to mostly to the environment the teacher creates with his persona'.
