    "I like the teachers at the school, I've always had great teachers. I wouldn't have wanted to go to another school. I've enjoyed my time there. The school its self is getting old. I'd like the school to be remodeled or changed in some way. A lot of the toilets don't work or get clogged and it takes them forever to fix it. They also need to get new desks because a lot of them are broken or are on the verge of being broken. The roof/ ceiling also needs to be fixed because if it rains a lot, then the ceiling starts to leak."

    "I absolutely love James Wood High School. I'm s thankful to go to JWHS, I wouldn't want to go to any other high school. I love most of the teachers that I have had over my 4 years of schooling. The administration and staff are amazing for the most part. There is no way to describe what it feels like to be a Colonel... its just indescribable!"

    "James Wood High School has taught me that life is not going to be a ride in the park. You are going to come across bumps in the road. Wether that be getting a teacher that has inadequate abilities to teach in a manner that is effective or having to deal with unpleasant class mates, you will gain lessons out of the negative aspects. Now, we cannot expect to go to a high school such as that in "High School Musical", but with the right outlook and the guidance of warm hearted teachers, you will leave your high school matured with the knowledge that life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get. Fortunately, I was granted with that knowledge after my high school career at James Wood High School."

    "I've been to three high schools, I've had the best experience at the last school I attended, James Wood High. I didn't think I would make very many friends, because I was clearly very different from everyone there. I felt like I wouldn't fit. When I stepped into school, I felt welcomed. Thinking about it now, it was definitely not so bad. I didn't expect to attend James Wood, either. Everyone was so friendly, especially teachers. My only problem was getting to adjust to the change. I made it, though! I was recognized for honor roll at this school, & received a certificate! I joined clubs, like HOSA and continued my role in FCCLA, & became President of the Book Club. One thing that I would change about James Wood is the restrooms, I would add a few more throughout the school. I would also fix the broken stalls and toilets in the restrooms. Overall, my experience at James Wood was spectacular, and the faculty/staff were beyond amazing. I thank James Wood for helping me find myself."

    "Did not prepare me for college, but supported me overall. I had a great time and great friends, and was able to take a couple of AP classes. However, English classes are poor and a lot of my academic skills were not improved."
