    "WRHS is a great school! I have two children attending this year and I love the teachers. They are supportive and encourage learning. If my child needs support, they are right there with encouragement. The athletic department is very supportive and fair when it comes to involving all the children. The staff is doing a great job and wonderful parent support! Thanks for a great school!"

    "My child went to a private school through K-8th. I really fretted over his moving to a public school. He just completed his freshman year at WRHS and we could not be happier with the sense of community and school unity, the diversity (socially, ethnically, and economically) of the student population (there is a niche for everyone, but a unified sense of school community), the wonderful principal and the great teachers. 5 of his 6 teachers were excellent, with one being average - but no situation is perfect. Our child happens to be academically advanced and all needs were met. Our child is not being forced into a preconceived mold that suppresses his intellectual abilities. We have several friends who have already moved or are moving there kids over to WRHS from a nearby pre-IB/IB program because they are so unhappy with the atmosphere and rigid inflexible nature of the program compared with what their friends are experiencing with Honors and AP at WRHS."

    "WRHS is one of the best high schools in the area. There's always something fun to do, and always a place for every person to fit in! The classes are interesting and there are so many choices! The sense of community at this school is incredible. If you want a high school you'll never forget, go to Wheat Ridge!"

    "EXCELLENT school!! I have never attended a better school in my life! The teachers and administration are all fantastic. They really care about the kids and do all that they can to help them succeed in multiple aspects of life and not just academically. WRHS really goes above and beyond the expectations of any high school. I hope the same atmosphere remains when I have high school students! I would recommend WRHS to EVERYONE!"
