Wootton is one of the most exceptional schools in Montgomery County. They provide many opportunities for students to engage in academics through out-of- school clubs and in school activities. They provide any needed resources that students would need. Our staff does a good job making any pep rally or football game a great time! Teachers make themselves readily available for any student who needs help, our administrators and counselors are nothing but friendly and helpful to everyone. Wootton offers many great programs for students to excel in such as Academy of Information Technology (AOIT) or our Science, Technology, and Research Scholars (STARS) program. We also hold great theater performances year around. Personally, I have never once felt unsafe at Wootton. Our security guards are always walking around during classes and all doors around the school are locked during classes. Wootton is great school overall for any student! Go Patriots!

I am currently studying at Wootton, and I could never be than fortunate to be in this school. It had been named as one of the best schools in the state and the United States, if you were to study here. You would see why! The classroom sizes are from 15 to the largest class I have been 27. However, one thing I would like to see change is more community interaction and more school events, my school is currently lacking that and if they were to change that, it would make the learning environment a more lovable place then it already is.
This school really prepares you for college, the classes may give lots of homework and intensive lessons, but they really prepare you for your future and the AP classes provide teaching to reach a 4 or 5! It is a big campus, and any teacher is not afraid to help you! We have lunch at the same time, and all students respect each other and do not bully others. The only thing is that it is very pressuring towards going to college and the expensive area to live around it, but otherwise, it is worth moving to!
