Overall, my experience at Wicomico High School was a positive one. Despite the negative stereotypes that went around in the community, anyone has the ability to have a positive experience as long as they center themselves with the right group of people. I am a rising sophomore at the University of Maryland and although I have found myself growing apart from some of my former classmates, I am also fortunate to still be connected with some of the same kids I met my first day there. I'm happy to call them my life-long friends.

Freshman year going great, can’t hate. One thing about it is Clubs need more work. Sports going great, Teachers doing great too. Fights are handled well. Safe Place, i dont feel scared. Teachers are funny and some can be mean. Subs dont know what they are talking about half the time and make up stuff. After all Not A Bad school
My experience at Wicomico High School was excellent. I enjoyed the environment. The teachers , students and administrators were all helpful during the years that i attended WiHi. Everyone is treated with respect. No one in the school is ever left out and the staff go above and beyond to make sure their students succeed.
