The Science Research and Engineering programs are outstanding opportunities for students wanting to get into the STEM fields. The Dual Language program has expanded at the high school leading the way for students to soon be graduating with the New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB). The Music program is incredible with students receiving instruction every other day. Combined with a rich diverse population, this district is INCREDIBLE!

Besides the academic standards being outstanding, the community, staff and location is overall amazing. I loved being a student there because there was always support and a great environment to create your college legacy in. I would send my future children there if I stay in New York!
I wouldn't be who I am without WPHS. I started my organization there; they were flexible with my schedule so that I could intern at the United Nations; they allowed me to start dancing - I owe a lot of who I am to them. And I still go back to visit at least twice a year! The teachers are incredibly supportive and basically family to me, still. Not to mention the diverse environment and challenging courses really prepared me for the real world more than what I have heard from other college students about their high school experiences.
