Wissahickon has a very diverse and open group of staff and teachers that work individually with students to help them achieve their goals. They give great attention to the safety and welfare of their students and provide individual attention to each and every one of their students to assist them with any challenges they may face.

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!
I've loved my experience at Wissahickon. Most teachers are very passionate about what they teach, and offer many ways to get extra help. The extracurricular opportunities at this school are also amazing. Unfortunately, there have been some problems with administrators, but on the level of the teachers, Wissahickon has done a great job preparing students for college and life past high school.
