I rate World Language High School as excellent. Excellent because of the way that the principal, dean, counselors, teachers, staff, and other people treat us. Every adult in the building pushes us to do our best. We’re always getting advice from everyone. The counselors have been a big help for seniors. We get resources from the counselors that help us apply for scholarships. The classes in World Language helps us prepare for college. We have honors and AP classes. We also have a college class which is child development. This class is a dual enrollment class which will give us college credit. World Language High School has been a big part of my high school years. I have been getting the help needed whenever it is necessary.

The teachers here are very supportive and help a lot with anything you need. The principal, Mr. Rogers, is amazing. He cares a lot about his students and makes sure everyone, including staff and faculty, are on task. This school also has a course specifically for college readiness for seniors. I'm taking this class and it has helped me apply to college, write my personal essay, and pick the right college for me. I've also had some help from one of my two counselors on filling and completing my FAFSA. Everything about this school is amazing, I love it.
The teacher were very kind and interactive but the students didn't seem to appreciate it too much, which was a shame. Teacher try their best meanwhile students can't even arrive on time.
