Wissahickon School District Reviews
My overall experience has been great! I have been given so many opportunities academically and non-academically. The teachers are great, and are very helpful. One thing I wish to see changed is the school spirit. School spirit is lacking due to kids not participating in extracurricular activities due to the amount of school work. School spirit definitely needs to increase!
My time at Wissahickon has, for the most part, been a very rewarding experience. Perhaps the best part of Wissahickon is not our academics or athletics, but the hardworking educators. I've had nothing but incredible experiences with my teachers, especially in junior year. Never have I seen such dedicated teachers- people who will stay hours after school for their students or even just take time out of their free periods to make sure a pupil's mental health is still intact. However, one bit of criticism I do have is in regards to the sheer amount of homework that we are assigned. Although I do understand the benefits of homework, often times I've had to sacrifice my sleeping schedule and my mental health to complete it, only for it to not even be checked for accuracy the next day in class. Yet, with the amazing connections I've made with my educators throughout the years, a bit of extra homework is certainly a small price to pay for such experiences.
I liked the Wissahickon school district. The school is not too large yet not too small. There are some strict teachers that are harsh, but even they are still workable with. There is a diverse student body and staff. It's a save area that never made me wonder if I need to worry about my protection. Things that I wished the school would change is the gym equipment and gyms. Also the bathrooms were okay most of the time, but wished they had workable sinks. Water fountains are great and became better when they added water bottle fillers. Also I think that the school should change the school schedule and keep everyday as block days instead of the 6 classes a day. College classes usually are not only less than an hour. Also should give students breaks in between classes to let us prepare before each class. Instead of rushing to pack up our things from the class before and already lagging behind the start of the next class because the traffic in the knuckle.
