    "What I liked most about Wiss is the diversity. Everyone was taught to treat others how they want to be treated from the moment they walked in the building and for the most part everyone abided that rule. Most students were genuine which made it such a fun and memorable high school experience. The teachers showed how much they truly cared about all the students by caring for even those they did not teach. The only thing I would probably change is the programs provided for students outside the classrooms and even outside of school. When students leave the school I know personally, home is not as fun, beneficial, or even a good environment for young people so I would create things like afterschool programs, centers for children to go from the high school, and other social events for those who may not want to go home just yet. Overall, Wissahickon is a great school."

    "While the school may boast its high ratings and wonderful student body, the Wissahickon High School is riddled with holes in this statement. More often than not, there are some leaky ceilings or shut down bathrooms due to a plethora of student and school related problems. Many of the facilities are either brand new or rapidly aging, such as the interior of the building. Student life is quite bland, as school spirit is practically unheard of, and many clubs and sports rarely intermingle. The most school spirit you may see is students wearing shirts or jerseys from their sports or activities. Lunches are horrible, if you plan on going to Wissahickon, it will probably be more worth it to pack. The food MAY look good, but it usually is lackluster at best. An overall bearable school, it has many kinks that need to be worked out until it can achieve the greatness it so boldly claims it has. Apparently this couldn't be more than 1000 characters, oh well."

    "Honestly, Wissahickon is a pretty solid high school. We are among the best public high schools in Pennsylvania. Academics are stressed at Wiss and most of the teachers are willing to go the extra mile for their students. Our facilities and school culture have definitely been lacking the most over the past few years. We do not have the best community spirit that we could have."
