The Scholars Academy provided vigorous classes including many AP classes, but the school itself was very diverse and unified. The teachers were very nice and caring and the rest of the staff made time for students that needed their help. Sports teams and clubs met regularly and the annual International Festival and theatre shows are greatly anticipated. The positive environment was one where students, staff, and visitors could practically feel the productive and flexible way that Wagner functions.

Susan E. Wagner is a place that attracts diversity. There are kids from all over the world. This is evident from all the clubs we have and the annual International festival we hold every year. Individuals of shared customs come together and show the audience their traditions. The administration has gradually excelled each year as students receive updates more frequently and are aware of what's going on within their educational vicinity. Although Wagner prospers majority of the time, I would like to see some improvements. For instance, the bathrooms need to get renovated because students don't feel comfortable using it due to its lack of maintenance. Furthermore, I feel that the school should expand their options of Advanced Placement classes. I wanted to take an AP Italian and an AP Business class, but none were offered. The school can't be perfect, but the faculty definitely tries their hardest to make it better than it was yesterday.
As a student at Susan E. Wagner high school, I've grown so much academically and culturally. Wagner offers many opportunities in terms of intellectual growth, through AP classes and SAT prep courses. Alongside clubs in which allow one to expresses their creativity and culturally, with annual events such as SING and International Festival. I just wished that school could handle its overpopulation, as there has been many times that I wasn't able to join a class I really wanted because it was maxed out.
