This is one of the top public schools in West Virginia, prepare children for college with maximum AP classes, variety of opportunities, clubs to be involved. The teachers are very involved with students well-being, make sure that each students are challenged to get a ahead of life. I introduced my children to public education at great reservation due to lack of Experience with public schools, but I am so glad that we have chosen this route because my children have flourished in many ways and made a smooth transition to a bigger University. I am so thankful for wheeling park high school for preparing well rounded students.

My time here is nearly through because I'm a senior, and the things I have to say about this school are nothing but positive. First of all you have friendly and caring teachers who truly love what they do, and will do almost anything to help a student. Secondly you have wonderful administrators who have been nothing but kind to me. Last but certainly not least you have all the career technical programs offered here, I personally chose to study business, but I have had many chances to see the other departments and all I can say is WOW. How many other schools have their own restaraunt for teachers, a garage where students fix and build cars, and welding and carpentry program that have built everything from the WPHS sign out front to the sets used in the spring musical. Each one of these classes prepares students for life. I am truly going to miss my WPHS family after graduation and I owe them many thanks for guiding me on the path to a bright future.
Teachers are dedicated to their jobs! The environment has been the issue for years. Some instances of bullying is rarely handled and a lot of favoritism occurs. Other than that, I would say that this school is one of the best in the Ohio Valley!
