It is an okay school, but my credits were not in order coming into my senior year. I was put into classes that I had already previously taken and the staff did nothing to help me with this situation and I had to take further actions on my own. The school is tremendously unorganized and the staff lack respect and responsibility. Other schools in surrounding areas offer better opportunities from my understanding. However aside from these issues, I have had an amazing experience being on the dance team and I am continuously remaining focused on keeping my grades up.

I came to Wingfield my junior year I wasn’t really excited but when I got to know everybody it was ok. I’m not a 2018 senior at Wingfield and I’m involved in a lot of things that take place because I love this school. The staff is very loving and it’s not hard to get along with people. Yes the school does need improvement academically but we’re going to rise up soon.
Wingfield was truly an experience, it was different, I stood out, but I made a way for myself. I owned my one year I attended this school and I went above and beyond by myself.
