Archbishop Wood High School Reviews

The community and school spirit of Archbishop Wood Highschool is unlike any other. Every pep rally, sporting event, or school production is full of wild applause and smiling faces. While choosing the best school for myself it was obvious that Wood was the only viable option due to its impeccable repuatation in sports, performing arts, and academics. I have made friends I know will last a life time as the teachers and courses have taught me the value of hard work, allowing me to expand my knowledge and grow as an individual. Faithfulness and kindness are promoted thoroughly in all theology classes, school functions, and the kairos retreats. Faithfulness merits the crown.

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
I have learned and experienced a lot at Archsishop Wood. The school brings all of its students together through its assemblies, football games, and events. I think the teachers could improve. Some are more worried about being the cool teacher than being the good teacher. Others are more worried about enforcing the dress code than teaching as well.
