On August, 2016 was my first year at Samuel Wolfson High School. During my 9th grade year it was very exciting and fun, but basically easy. But as time moves on in my 10th and 11th year, things started to become more difficult and the work. My teachers and the teachers their that wasn’t my teachers always encouraged us to take responsibility and to always work hard because someday it will pay off. My senior overall was pretty clam and fun and just sharing memories. Wolfson is a good and exceptional schools. It prepares the students to be ready for college and real life. Not only that but also to take responsibility no matter what.

Wolfson has been a good opportunity for my child however I feel that it is losing its edge due to current administration. I chose this school due to academic, extracurricular, athletic opportunities as well as the diversity the school provided. Unfortunately under the current administration the diversity is being pushed aside and the ‘image’ of the school is becoming more important that the actual student population. Don’t get me wrong in that the teachers are truly caring and there are opportunities available due to the small size, however the diversity is dying and that is sad in such a diverse real world.
I was a huge fan of the academic side of the school, but I wish some of the teachers were better and that the school did a better job of getting people who actually know how to teach certain subjects instead of forcing teachers who are already proficient at certain things to learn something new just so that it can be offered as a class. I also really enjoyed the band program that the school offers.
