Wakefield Memorial Highschool is a fairly great school when it comes to academics, sports, and clubs. The administration and staff put a lot of effort into keeping students included and involved. Parents are also encouraged to be involved with student academics, and clubs. Wakefield Memorial High School has a strong culture for sports and the support is unmatched of our "red sea'' of students at every game or match. In spite of the efforts made to keep students included, the students of color and metco were fairly neglected. Once opinions and problems were voiced, the school staff and parents made efforts to include the students and since provisions have been successful. This school has many successful kids in the making, with resources that aid and positive role models that guide the students of wakefield memorial highschool.

Wakefield Memorial High School created a wonderful experience for me during my 4 years that I attended! Not only was the education amazing, but each and every faculty member spent countless hours and efforts to provide me with the best experience possible and I would recommend this school to everybody!
I have had a great four years, The best and most memorable part are the caring teachers and staff. Unfortunately the Corona virus cut our Senior year short! Overall it was a great experience.
