    "I graduated from Wissahickon in 2004 and since the, both of my sisters have graduated as well. I feel the high school well prepared me for college and provided diverse opportunities for all interests. The staff was academically supportive and I was able to build leadership and social skills through various after school activities. I had adequate help both in applying for and choosing the right college for me. I was able to meet my own academic needs by creating a schedule of both standard and honor classes ."

    "The opportunities at this high school are excellent. I have two students here. It was a good school before, but now I am delighted with the changes that the new principal is making. She is an incredible leader with a proven track record and a strong leadership team. We have benefitted from her excellent involvement at two previous schools as my kids were growing. How lucky to now have her at the high school!"

    "I went to school here and thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years of education. I believe they hire great teachers, the curriculum was structured soundly, and the environment / resources are up to date. I would not hesitate to send my future sons / daughters to Wissahickon as I believe it helped me grow in areas where I needed improvement."

    "Great school. I've had three students attend. My last is a junior and doing great. It's has a diverse mix in the student body which mirrors exactly what they will find in our society. I have found that the teachers go the extra mile for students who reach out for it and don't expect to be spoon fed. I hear some of the negatives and just laugh. I feel the only problem are some of the parents who continue to make excuses for their Childs lack of effort and have to put the blame somewhere whether its a coach or a teacher. I had one son who struggled and was in special education for a period of time and the teachers were great. In many cases because he was an athlete they would work with him before school stated so not to miss practice. Look in the mirror parents and be truly objective."
