    "The academics at Wiss are incredible. The scheduling process is a little stressful but once you settle in to all your classes your experience will be great. Depending of the class the workload can be a little hard but teacher are always really understanding and accommodating. There is always tutoring options available and teacher genuinely want to see you succeed in your class. My suggestion is to take a full year study hall. They as a blessing and are useful if you are taking harder classes."

    "I love WHS. I have grown so much in my four years here and have made so many friends and connections to teachers. One of my favorite experiences was the Gifted program which helped me explore my capabilities as a student and learn a lot about presentations and projects in which teamwork is required. I had a lot of fun in that class and made great friends and built strong relationships with the teachers."

    "The teachers at Wissahickon High School always put in more effort than is required. In my experiences at WHS, the teachers have always been extremely helpful during class and after/before school. They are qualified and have all the necessary knowledge on their subject and have an interest and passion for what they teach. Their grading policies are fair and consistent in each class but not necessarily across the different classes of the same subject."
