    "I graduated from WHS 3 years ago now and I have mixed feelings about it. I feel like as far as teaching goes WHS is probably the same to other regards in that it varies from teacher to teacher. Some of them were horrible, some of them were awesome. How the school is manged though is horrible and most people around know of all the mistakes they have made. As I have gone through my first three years of college and am preparing for my start out in the real world I have realized that the classes they offered were so mundane that I was set back in any field that had anything to do with technology. WHS's lack of any real technology courses or teachers that could teach such is probably its biggest draw back. With the way the economy is a school needs to give its students a chance."

    "I moved to Wellsboro from a more urban area at the start of my freshman year, and I can't stress enough how much this school has benefitted me. At first, I believed that moving to a small school would take away some of the opportunities that could have been offered to me in a larger area, but after four years as a student in this system, I am confident that Wellsboro provides endless activities, clubs, and opportunities to get involved in for each one of its students, from a youth leadership program to student teaching opportunities. Wellsboro truly cares about its students. Teachers encourage students to get involved, point out their strengths, and recommend them to special programs that fit the type of student they are. The personal attention I received here made me feel like I belonged. I was part of the family. This is an exceptional school."

    "As a former student of WHS - it has its pros and cons, as any school does. Unfortunately, with Wellsboro's small size, students are often categorized from a young age in regards to level and ability. With any small town, gossip and preferential treatment exist for family, relatives, and friends. Still, while there are teachers who go to work every day for a paycheck, others truly care about each student's ability to grow and learn. Wellsboro is one of the better School Districts, and has stronger academics in the area - especially in comparison to Northern and Southern Tioga School Districts. Finally, WHS provides numerous opportunities to develop any willing student, academically, or not. As someone who participated in three sports, was very active in the music department, was a class and student council officer, and had a 3.9 GPA, I cannot stress the benefits of attending this school."

    "The staff and faculty at WHS are helpful and willing to go the extra effort to meet the student(s) attain their academic goals. Yes, they will push and sometimes perhaps even prod but it is done because they are sincerly interested in the academic acheivement of there pupils."

    "Bottom line is this. Wellsboro is a very, very, small, Mayberry like town in the mountains of northern Pennsylvania. If you like 20 feet of snow a year and black bears eating out of your bird feeders, than this is your Heaven. I'm from Washington, D.C. area, and Wellsboro is the complete opposite of the city of D.C..The schools are good because their is only 1 high school and none of the kids there have the mentality of kids who go to school in the city, or even outside of a major city. Wellsboro is, in my opinion, only meant for those who were born and raised there."
