    "I've been to three high schools, I've had the best experience at the last school I attended, James Wood High. I didn't think I would make very many friends, because I was clearly very different from everyone there. I felt like I wouldn't fit. When I stepped into school, I felt welcomed. Thinking about it now, it was definitely not so bad. I didn't expect to attend James Wood, either. Everyone was so friendly, especially teachers. My only problem was getting to adjust to the change. I made it, though! I was recognized for honor roll at this school, & received a certificate! I joined clubs, like HOSA and continued my role in FCCLA, & became President of the Book Club. One thing that I would change about James Wood is the restrooms, I would add a few more throughout the school. I would also fix the broken stalls and toilets in the restrooms. Overall, my experience at James Wood was spectacular, and the faculty/staff were beyond amazing. I thank James Wood for helping me find myself."

    "Did not prepare me for college, but supported me overall. I had a great time and great friends, and was able to take a couple of AP classes. However, English classes are poor and a lot of my academic skills were not improved."

    "James Wood High School has excellent teachers, clubs, sports, and activites. I played for JWHS's soccer team my freshman year and played in the marching band. These activities had great coaches and teachers. Throughout high school, I feel that mostly all of the teachers were very understanding, patient, and dedicated most of their time into teaching the students well."

    "The majority of the teachers and staff I interacted with were great! The student body itself seemed a little separated while I was there, and as the "new kid" coming in as a junior, I was a little intimidated at times. The higher level classes will prepare a student well for college classes, as the AP teachers I had truly enjoyed their subject, and were dedicated to helping their students understand the material efficiently."

    "James Wood High School is a nice school, but a lot could be improved. I feel the academics are weak and don't offer enough of a variety. The majority of the teachers are very unwilling to help. We have almost no diversity. The school just isn't even a whole unit, every classroom runs differently. Although this does sound dreadful, I've enjoyed my past three years there as a student. I've indulged myself in AP classes and have joined so many clubs. At James Wood there is pretty much a club for anything. I have gained new experiences and made new friends."
