    "I graduated from WIHS way back in 1949. The graduation class, at that time, was over 700 kids,. It was an all girl HS at that time, and there was an all boys HS--Sturvesant high, 2 blocks away--every Friday night, we would have dances--sometimes the girls would host--sometimes the boys would host--but, a Great time was had by all. WIHS was "old" even then--the ony elevators in the buildings were used only by the teachers or students with "special" passes--I can remeber many times having gym class in the basement of the old school and having to climb the 11 floors to the new building and my next class--in 3 min. time The school was old, but the girls were all young and full of pep-we were anxious to let people know we were in high school our principal was strict, and there were many rules the students had to obey--and we did--we knew what would happen if we were discharged from our school. we had a great 4 years-- Anyone, who goes to high school today-no matter which school it is and says they hate it--well, you just aren't making the most of the BEST 4 YEARS OF YOUR LIFE--I am so sorry to hear about the closing of the school, but the memories will live on."

    "I graduated from this school in '07 and am not sad that the school is being closed. Some, actually close to all of the worst experiences in my life have happened at this school. Most of which were caused not by the students but the staff members. This school is just an overall failure anyway you look at it. If I could go back in time and transfer out of this school, I would, in the drop of a hat. I feel bad for only a very few number of students and staff members who will be inconvenienced by the shut down."

    "I hate this school and I am glad it's shutting down! I was MUGGED in broad daylight right outside the school- by some of the students! A kid grabbed my phone and ran, her friends started laughing and verbally harassing me. I did some research online, and apparently this isn't an isolated incident- it appears these kids have even beat up a pregnant woman! I say throw these obnoxious delinquents into prison now, and save the rest of us civilians from their antics. I am never walking past that school again, and no wonder they have metal detectors and an X-ray to enter, they've found kids with guns too!"

    "i graduated during 08 and this school has ups and downs. There is definitely some great teachers in this school especially in the Math and English department. Most of the excellent teachers left because (in my opinion) of the students. Some students just don't care about school and like to disrupt the class and argue. I also had a lot of fun from after school activities and friends."
