    "Wirt Emerson VPA is overall an okay school when it wants to be. The only thing thats GREAT is the Arts such as Vocal. Thats the only thing kids look forward to other than there friends. The academic teachers are terrible. And when I was a sophomore I was in a terrible Algebra 2 class but I was making a B average, so me being an A student I tried to switch classes because I felt like I wasn't learning anything and what she was teaching I didnt really understand so I tried to get out and get a better understanding of Algebra 2 for a different teacher because I know I'm going to need that for a upper level in math, and the Principal Ms. Ward said No! And that I didn't have a legitimate reason for switching class and that at that moment it was too late in the trimester. So I waited til the beginning of the 2nd trimester and she gave that sorry excuse again and I couldn't change class. So the WHOLE school year I was in that class. It was a waste of my sophomore time."

    "To be honest , Wirt is a very irresponsible school. The staff do not care at all. The school is very filthy . Bugs and rodents roam the school Janitors do not do their job. Overall , the school is horrible in my opinion and does not provide an comforting work environment for the students there."

    "I've been going here since 6th grade and next school year I will be a senior. This school is a good school to develop your talents but I do feel like the school shows favortism towards the majors that make the most money for the school. For instance the vocal department has performed for the president and are going to disney world but some of the other majors dont do anything. Our principal is reallly strict as well. We have no money. We cant even afford more than 2 janitors during the day and night. If we had enough money to actually do things maybe the school would be more fun but its like going to prison everyday for 8+ hours a day."
