    "I attended Wells back in 1968 -71. I often check up to see how things are going there today. It was a wonderful school back then and I see it still is today! As I am 57 years old now I know all our old teachers have left or retired. Thanks to the Principals, staff and students who continue to make me proud! We also have a group on facebook., it's called...."Wells High School 1960 thru 1980" for those that attended back them. Good luck to all your current students! Sincerely, Diane Montague.CLASS OF 1972. Wells Loyalty Song........ Wells High, we raise our voice to thee. Wells High, you have our loyalty, fighting and always striving, to bring to you a victory. So we'll say Wells High, to you we pledge our hearts, to you we will be true. Fight on and keep our colors flying, silver and royal blue."

    "I transfered my daughter into Wells half way through her freshman year. I had MAJOR concerns regarding the reputation of the school, however after researching I found that they were cleaning house. My child has never been happier and I as a parent absolutely LOVE the staff at Wells. Principal Matias is doing an amazing job and has really given the school new vision. He greets parents and students with a warm, friendly hug and shows genuine interest in every single student. You just don't see that anymore within school administration. He and his staff are to be commended for their compassion and passion for their jobs. Regarding the things that ppl say about this school, don't believe it. Walk into the campus, take a tour, interact with staff and students. You'll quickly see that this school has gotten a bumm rap. I transfered my daughter from a school with a great reputation, which was my reason for putting her there to only have her belittled by the principal and staff. It was a horrible school, yet known for being "great". I put her in Wells, the reverse happened. A school that's looked badly upon, yet I found them to be amazing. Wells Academy has completely won me over."

    "I live in the area and have often wondered why there isn't a good vocational program for these kids. Most will not make it past meaningless jobs. Sad really, But scoring 10% accross the board is simply atrocious. These kids CAN NOT compete."

    "The new principal, Ernesto Matias, began at Wells in September 2008, and has already had a tremendously positive impact on the school. As he himself routinely says, 'We have a revolution going on at Wells!' Under his leadership, the school has improved dramatically and immediately, teachers are stepping up and improving classroom instruction. As you can see from this site, students are very enthusiastic about the difference."
