First and foremost, my experience at wood River high school have been unforgettable. I remember arriving as fifth grader, not knowing a single word in english. Yet, teachers were always working extra hours to make my dream of learning English come true. Throughout my 6 years of attending at Wood River high school, one of the things that I have liked is the way teachers make sure you learn the lessons properly. They are always making sure you are working hard and believe that you can do better. Additonally, one of the things that I like about this school is that it has given me the most help throughout the years and have taught me that there is nothing impossible. Truthfully, if I were to see something change about this school it would be food. They should put more choices and not just a couple, because not everyone has the same taste in food.
Wood River has a great education system. The teachers care a lot about the students, and the students care about their learning. The diversity is well rounded. Also, the school is very safe and clean.
