"I love that I am a student of West Deptford High School!! The teachers, and the administration is so dedicated in instilling students to thrive in the classroom. There are high disciplinary consequence, and not doing well in the classroom is completely unacceptable. The school, has so much pride, the community, is so together, 98% of students go to college, sports teams are second to none. Teachers have a set of standards for what they want their students to achieve, and will bend over backwards to make sure the students excel. When you put it all together, you can't ask for a better school, then the one and only WDHS."
"This school's football team has poor sportmanship. Just because you are down a few touchdowns in the first half, doen't mean you go around hurting other players. Lose gracefully. Don't have your teachers dress up as refs and help you by extending the minutes in the first half and giving you 2 touchdowns so you would not end up with a score of ZERO ! Now we know that your football rogram cheats"
"I am a graduate of this school, currently failing in my third semester of college. The main focus at this school is 'cookie-cutter' education and the teachers and other staff really try to keep too strict control over the students and the learning process. The mindset of may teachers, I feel, was that the teacher is always right and constructive criticism, different opinions, etc, by students is inappropriate and unwelcome. This school is terrible when it comes to preparing students for real college - seeing as, my estimate, 80 percent of every graduating class goes to Gloucester County College. The school also has the tendency to make students think it's okay to take the easy way out and attend GCC and there is no real effort to push students to attend real 4-year colleges and universities. I feel like the school screwed me over in terms of college prep."
"My son has gone through the entire WDT school system from kindergarten and I have had nothing but positive experiences with the teaching staff and administration at all three schools. I have to say, however, there is a significant issue with drugs and also with what I also perceive to be questionable placements academically in some subjects at WDHS--this does tend to hold some kids back. Also, though the school has excellent technology resources, classes offered around technology are limited and basic in scope. I do believe the majority of parents are truly committed to their kids in our town. I have also seen some excellent mentoring and lifelong relationships evolve from the open communication between teachers and students. Overall, an outstanding school!"
"West Deptford High School is a wonderful school. I am part of the class of 2009. Class sizes are small enough to allow for one on one attention with students, yet they are large enough to provide a variety of views in class discussions. The teachers at WDHS also are available after school to help students in need and are extremely caring. The administration at WDHS is also very helpful to both parents and students. With a variety of courses to choose from, at varying levels, WDHS is extremely versatile. The sports programs are incredible at WD, as well as the band. Almost every student at WDHS is involved in sports, band, or another sort of club. There are many clubs to choose from which range from general interest clubs, community service clubs, to academic clubs. WDHS is very involved within the community (ex. Senior Citizens Prom) and strives for excellence."
