Archbishop Wood High School Reviews

During my four years at Archbishop Wood High School from 2011-2015, I was shaped into a successful individual. Finding yourself in a room of 30 or so other brilliant teenagers, instructed by a caring teacher was the best thing that happened to me. Everyone cared about becoming something in life. Not only were we taught important skills, but our instructors cared about us individually and personally.
Special thank you to the most impactful staff who helped me on my journey:
Theology Department Head Ms. Blastic
Theology teacher and fellow alum Mr. Tarrant
Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry and AP Calculus teacher Mr. Brodzinski
Chemistry and AP Chemistry teacher Mr. Webb
Anatomy/Physiology teacher Doctor Halloran
School Counselor Mrs. Butts
Spanish teacher Señora Smith

My daughter had her choice of a couple high schools but chose Wood because of their academic reputation and dedication to their students. Wood teachers take a personal interest in each of their students and are quick to work with families to resolve any issues immediately. The Parents Association welcomes parents on a monthly basis to meet and keep up with school happenings. Aside from their successful athletics programs, the school goes above and beyond with extra events such as the fashion show, mother/son dance, father/daughter dance and student activities such as Homecoming, spirit day, dance-a-thon and "Mr. Viking". Finally, the school is blessed to have Mr. Gary Zimmaro as their President. Like his staff, Mr. Zimmaro is personally vested in each of his students and goes above and beyond to help families have the best educational experience possible. Sending your child to Archbishop Wood is like getting a private academy education without the added expense.
There were some quality teachers who you could tell truly cared about the students futures and education, and also a wide range of sports that a student could participate in, for instance I was on the bowling team. What I would like to see them change is their extracurricular offerings. Unless you were on a sports team or in theater/band, then there wasn't much in the way of activities to do. No culture clubs or serious service organizations or even just random appreciation clubs.
