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.

Overall, I believe any student would be more than satisfied with Wadsworth Highschool. I have gotten a great education and the athletic programs are phenomenal as well. A student would also have plenty of extra curricular activities to chose from as well. With this being said, I would have appreciated more help from our school and counselors in preparing for college.
I love all of the teachers at Wadsworth High School, as many seem to truly love what they do! Help is always available, even in the most rigorous of AP classes. The student body is united and has a strong school spirit, especially when it comes to sports.
