Wheeling Park High School has probably prepared me more than any other high school in my area could have. I will always appreciate the amazing teachers that I have had and the great classes that have taught me interesting subjects like Human Geography and Black History. Of course, I'm aware that this isn't the case for everyone's experience and perhaps I have only got lucky but the Wheeling Park I attend isn´t perfect but they strive for it by listening to their students most of the time.
Wheeling Park High School is a school with many opportunities for students with all sorts of interests. From fine arts, to business, to welding classes, Wheeling Park offers classes to help prepare students for life after high school and the for work force. The classes offered help students achieve their goals and plan for their future while being in a familiar and comfortable environment.
Wheeling Park High School is a great school if you choose to take advantage of all of its clubs, classes, sports, and other programs. I have never been put into a class that I didn't want to be in and that didn't push me. I have been in honors and AP classes every year I have been here and most classes prepare for the next class I will need to take, depending on which teacher you are given. The sports, speech, and music programs are very loved at our school as most other high schools don't have the facilities to have all of these successful programs and for that I am thankful. Wheeling Park has provided me with some of my best friends, my athletic career, and a great education.
