    "We transferred here from a Manhattan junior high after the beginning of last year (7th grade). It was a delightful surprise. My son thought (and still thinks) the kids are so much friendlier and well behaved in this school. The teachers he says, spend less time disciplining and more time teaching. As a result he has excelled here. The teachers have been stimulating and very accessible for both of us when there are questions about the work or if he had some difficulty understanding the work. The guidance counselors have been supportive during the transition and the office staff friendly and helpful. . As a parent it is easy to find opportunities to volunteer and some of the fundraising activities are lot's of fun (love the Crazy Cake Auction). I find the school's daily emails home very helpful and in the 7th grade they had daily homework text/emails sent which was enormously helpful in keeping him organized and me abreast of his work. All in all it's been a very good experience."

    "This is truly a great school. Under the leadership of Mr. V. DiGrandi, my child had an excellent 2 years. He is the type of Principal that the student body feels comfortable talking to, and the staff at WJHS does a good job of encouraging parent partnerships. Excellent staff, excellent extracurricular activies, excellent academic programs."

    "Great if your child is a 'typcially functioning' student. This distrcit/school is not accomodating for students with special needs/requiring special education services. They expect the child to fit into the program, not change or create a new programs to meet the educational needs of the children. For example this district/school will not modify the curriculum to meet the students educational needs, the curriculum can not be deviated from because the teachers much teach to the state testing instead of meeting their students needs. I can only imagine the teachers frustration."
