Waldeigh Secondary School For The Performing & Visual Arts Reviews

I've been at my school for a while. Ive truly seen the changes occur over the years. They now have more AP classes like English, History, Spanish and Pre-Calc. They also offer chemistry in my school. I feel that I get many opportunities in my school and I appreciate that the staff tries their hardest to make it all happen. This is a no judgement zone as well. So many of the students are talented,and we even have shows coming up for you to see! With a new principal, there are some minor changes but not in a bad way. If you truly want to experience what Wadleigh is like, I recommend for you to see the Arts. We are partners with Carnegie Hall, the Apollo, Cooper Union, F.I.T, C.F.E.S and so much more! Truly a great experience here.

While attending Wadleigh for my four years of high school, I felt like I was home. I didn't feel as if I was an outsider when It came down to interacting with the students and even the staff as well. With the kind of back ground that I have, the staff had nothing but open arms for me, when I needed something they were always willing to go that extra step for me both in a academic sense and personal one as well. Many people tend to feel that's its okay to judge this school base off of what others have to say and never really taking the time to come and check the school out. Even though wadleigh seems to be such a small school, there connects run really deep.
The teachers at this school really adore their students. They try their hardest to really understand the students and adjust the lessons so that everyone can be active and learn as much as possible. They are very knowledgable and communicate with the students and staff in a respectable yet friendly manner. All grades are posted online, sent through email and also through progress reports.
