Wyomissing is an amazing school! It's small, so everyone pretty much knows everyone else, and many of us have gone to school together since Kindergarten, so there is not much bullying or drama. There are lots of opportunities to pursue special interests, from computer programming to economics to photography. Wyo has a fabulous art department and a program called Art Major, so if you love art, you can have a portfolio of work to use to apply to art school. There are also excellent music and drama programs as well as some strong sports teams. It's a very safe school and the parents are very involved. Most core courses have an academic and an honors option, and there are a lot of AP choices starting in 10th grade. Basically, Wyo offers a private school education in a public school setting. It's fun and social, but still academically challenging. I would not want to have gone anywhere else and would definitely choose Wyo again if I could do it all over. I highly recommend it!
Review Wyomissing Area Junior/Senior High School
Almost all of the teachers are excellent and set high standards. They were always willing to help students after class and go beyond the norm because they really care about their students and want to see them succeed. Out of all the teachers I have had in my six years there (it's 7th-12th), there are only one or two I would not want to have again, and I will really miss some of them a lot. It's a small school, so you get to know the teachers and staff well, which is great, especially when it is time to ask for letters of recommendation for college! There is a lot of homework, but my three older cousins who graduated from Wyo all said they felt completely prepared for college because of their Wyo teachers and the work load. In fact, they all said college was generally easier!
Wyomissing is an amazing place to have children go to school and work! Students are valued, while encouraged to explore and get involved! So many clubs and activities. It is clear the staff is really in it for the students. Truly an amazing school district!
