While I did not enjoy all of my time at Wakefield, it taught me to become a more understanding person and to really appreciate the people in my life. I'm a military brat and moved to this school in the 8th grade, my parents did the math and it turned out Wakefield was the 12th school I had attended since the 1st grade. Moving around quite a bit was hard on me and I never realized why that was until I moved here, because I never tried to make friends at my other schools, because I knew I'd just move a way in a year so what would be the point? That's one thing I would never trade or give back and made my expirience worth wild, actually having friends who are always there for you!

The teachers make sure to go over the topic through enough that students have the unerstandment that some schools fail to get to with students. There system of getting people in trouble could be changed to made taken a bit more literal instead of them saying no and going on.
Some of the teachers are extremely passionate about the students and the kind of education they are giving them.

Mr. Freeman, Mr. Keating, Mr. Steppe, Mrs. Hammond, and Ms. Fowler are the best teachers at that school. They push the students to give their best and succeed. They are actively invoved with the students education and character development. The worst is the English department. Your child will gain nothing out of taking English. The teacher is terrible at grading on time and communicating. She does not do a good job of teaching the students. If your child can, have them take Comp I and II their senior year. Other than that the rest of the teaching staff is great.
