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!
Great district to be in, the community surrounding is awesome! Teachers academics are great! Although there is definite improvement needed in the facilities at the school (ceiling, rats, heating/cooling).
I graduated from Wissahickon High School in June 2015 and was in the district since kindergarten. I had a great experience at WSD. Everyone who worked there was committed to helping each student reach their full potential. I was put in a setting where I was challenged as both the students and the teachers cared. I also grew a lot throughout my time in the district and my teachers really helped me get out of my shell. I felt very well prepared for college as I took several AP classes and honors courses, and even if I didn't take AP classes I feel as if I would have been prepared as the college guidance was helpful for me. The school district is really a community. The teachers make the effort to get to know each student and also the parents. The families I grew up with were close as well. The relationships formed through the district enhanced my experience.
