I love everything thing about Wihi. The teachers are great, I’m glad they’re aren’t any stairs, and the work is intriguing. The only thing I would change about Wihi is the bathroom. They flood too often and they smell horrible! Other than that Wihi is a great school.

Going to a Wicomico County Public school was great. Nice teachers, administrators, and students. The testing scores were at there finest and the teachers always made sure everything was in order. Nice learning facilities and student help was always aided. If I had to re-experience high schools or any type of schooling it would be at a Wicomico Public School. Period!
WCPS has given me opportunities however there are many areas the district can improve. I have gone to the schools in this district that are considered the “poorer” schools and have made it out just fine but I do wish those schools were given better attention from the board of education. Also, it is now my Senior year at Wicomico High School and I can say WCPS has done a really terrible job of making my senior year special. Unfortunately Covid-19 had put a hauls into a normal year but I wished WCPS would put their students first at this time instead of taking the easy way out.
