    "What I liked about Dr. Henry A Wise Jr. High School above all else was the staff, throughout the school, the teachers and counselors especially are very patient, understanding, and motivational as they pushed me and others to work harder. The school also has a vast majority of classes one could take, from AP statistics, to Ceramics, to College Summit, there is something for every kind of student to do and if it can't be found in the classes there is sure to be a club ran by students that one could get involved with. The one thing i'd change about the school, is the amount of time, money, and energy invested in athletics and push more of it into the academics, as the athletics outshine our academics by far, our school average SAT score is a bit lower than national average yet some of our teams have been unstoppable such as the varsity football team who have been undefeated and secured two championship wins twice in a row these past two seasons."

    "My experience as a former student was pretty great compared to other schools within the district. But if there was one thing I will always remember, is that the faculty always educated the students about higher learning and college readiness!"

    "Academically, the school lacks significantly. Athletically, the school is quite superior than the average high school. The school is over 90% African American and 98% minority, but all students are accepted not matter what their race and ethnic background. The teachers are very kind but are not well prepared. They are overwhelmed throughout the year because of the overcrowded classrooms and lack of staff. Some teachers are coaches as well which make their years even more difficult for both themselves and their students. Office hours are not very consistent with their busy schedules."

    "Wise High School is great! When I first got there I was a little nervous because it was a way bigger school environment than the school I was coming from. I eventually got used to it and overall its a good school. Yes! Drama, and all those normal high school things still occur but our principal knew just how to handle it. If I could've went there from 9-12th I would have done it thats how nice of a school it is overall."

    "As a rising junior currently attending the University of Maryland, College Park, I can say with all certainty that Wise did not adequately prepare me for the challenges faced in college. During my time here at Wise, the curriculum (compared to other schools like ERHS and other schools in other counties in Maryland) was not college intensive. At times, it seemed as if teachers were only just passing students along, so they could get their biweekly paycheck. It wasn't until Junior and Senior year, where I actually had educators that knew what they were doing, were adamant about doing their jobs, and were truly passionate about their careers. Honestly, if it wasn't for certain courses such as AP Psychology and College Summit, I probably would've never been accepted into the University of Maryland, and for that, I am thankful to Wise."
