It was an alright high school, but I wish it helped the students help focus on what they want to do in the future and help prepare them for college. Also they should have classes for what the students need to help them get into the college they want and into the major they want.

This school has brought me a long way with my education, my friends, and my experience. The school spirit is excellent and everyone seems to join in. I had the opportunity to perform the anthem at high school sporting events, as long as sing in musicals and in choirs here. Athletics also became a big part of the fun and working hard. The events we provide in our school keep kids motivated to work and learn in school. Our dances and spirit weeks are amazing, as we have just started our very first pin dodge ball tournament this school year. The students over the past four years have really joined together as one, for our spirit rally, sporting events, and many more. One of the most unique things about Niagara Wheatfield is that we are the only school in western new york that has a high school senior sitting on the school board representing the school. I was lucky enough to be chosen on the board as this is only our third year starting with a student representative would choose this school every time because of the amount of fun we have in our education as well as the many more spectacular things our school provides.
Really the one thing that I can say is they need to update the sports facilities. That will be happening soon , I heard. I really had great teachers throughout my past four years. It can get hot in the classes rooms in the fall & spring.
