Wadsworth High School Reviews

My time at Wadsworth High School was probably my favorite time in school, aside from my favorite classes in college. Every single member of the staff, especially the teachers and my principal Mr. Moore, were all incredibly nice and helpful. I have Asperger's syndrome, and it was always hard for me to keep my attention. All my teachers knew this, and they made it certain that my stuff was easy to follow. They also gave me the freedom to ask for help when I needed it, which I needed a lot. However, they also showed me how to fend for myself, allowing me to feel extremely independent. They also put up with my silly nonsensical attempts at humor, and it made some of them even laugh. I'm still so happy that happened! I'm so glad I got to go there, and they will be truly missed.

The school itself isn't designed very well. The floor plan wasn't made with the amount of students in mind. In addition, there is a strong belief of everything that is new is better. For instance, the idea that the school given Chrome Books can outperform the cell phones that the students have is laughable. Despite all this, the school does have many good features. For one, almost every teacher in the school is very dedicated and good at teaching what they teach. They all have phenomenal grasps on what it means to be a teacher.
Wadsworth High School offers many good academic opportunities, including solid AP and CCP programs. Those in advanced tracks have many positive resources available to them. The arts programs and athletics are also very strong. However, lower level classes are often neglected and left in the dust. The culture within the school is not the best either, especially for non-athletes and minority groups.
