We moved to Vacaville from the midwest and I was very nervous about the reputation that "California public schools" seem to have in the rest of the country. I have been VERY pleasntly surprised by the quality of this school. The teachers are genuine and very supportive, the athletics are competitive in the region, and the student body seems generally supportive of each other, and accepting of diversity and differences. The "bless you" incident was completely blown entirely out pof proportion, no points were ever taken from students and it was a matter of the teacher actually doing his job and trying to control his class (from a bunch of disruptive out of line students) and not one of religion or separation of church and state.

i find it disturbing that this school district would employ a teacher would deduct points from a student for saying god bless you. not only has this teacher violated this student's right of free speech, but his views are representative of polital correctness that has been crippling for some time now. in this case, it should be the teacher that is repremanded, not the student!


Posted September 29, 2011

As a district that employs a teacher who deducts points from a student's grades for saying "bless you" after someone sneezes, I cannot rate this school anything other than "Awful". This type of arbitrary communistic indoctrination should not be tolerated anywhere in the United States. Until this teacher is removed, I suggest to all parents that they remove their children from the school.

...Even though I don't see the harm in the occasional "Bless you"...the separation of church and state is for a very, very good reason. Religions are many, and belong in the home or church....not in a government building for all people of that community. The average parent who hasn't spent much time in the classroom preferably like a fly on the wall, doesn't know what their little angels are doing to disrupt the learning for all the students. Many who really do care about getting an education, some who only want to pretend to sneeze so their friends say "bless you" so many times the teacher hardly has a chance to teach. Isn't that one of the reasons we pay our taxes, so that teachers can give our kids some education? If being able to say bless you is more important than education, your child belongs in a religious school, not a public one.

I feel this school is wonderful. The reason I only give it a four is because of the LInk Crew and Cat Kartel. The link crew is a bunch of overrated upperclassmen who claim to help freshmen when they only push them aside. The people in charge don't really help them reconnect and my freshman son felt more punished by having a link leader. The other reason, Cat Kartel, is a school approved bully group. They have students invited in to a world of drugs and sex. It goes on right under the school's nose. The badmintion and tennis programs are woderful. The football team is rising. The band program is struggling to get back on its feet after a director change but seems to be stepping up in marching. The chior is wonderful and amazing. You will not find a better one.

My daughter has been a freshman at WCW this past year and had many opportunities for personal growth. WCW offers Band, Choir, Performing Arts, and Successful Sport Teams. Teachers are very attentive and easy to communicate with. The Principal, Teachers and Counselors show sincere interest in guiding students to succeed. The students are genuine and down to earth. Not a lot of big egos bidding to out do each other. Instead they support and cheer each other on! Academically WCW is like all other schools, If you complete your work, pay attention in class and do your part you learn. You get out what you put in. We have been happy with the material my daughter has learned this year. She gets alot out because she puts alot in!

My second daughter is completing her senior year at Will C. Wood High School. Although they are very different, both girls had positive experiences at Wood. There are some amazing teachers and a few not so amazing ones. The vocal music program is one of the finest available. Wood's Sylvan Singers are a vocal performance group who have won awards and performed all over California. This summer they're traveling to Europe to perform along with Sylvan Singer alumni. There is also band, orchestra and jazz band. Students who are looking for a school that is strong in the arts, would enjoy WC Wood. The student government program also provides excellent opportunities for students to develop leadership. There is a solid sports program and students also have other opportunities for involvement. The administration is caring and parent involvement is valued. The population is multicultural. Students feel safe on campus.

The academic program is mediocre and not very supporting, but contains a wide variety of sports and extracurricular activities to join. There is an acceptable art program, but could use more entusiasm. Parent involvement is next to none, but doesn't really seem to be necessary.

This school is not very good in the academic department.

My daughter attended Will C. Wood High for four years and had a great education. The teachers were motivating, and most students were striving for academic achievement. My daughter did not experience the usual stigmas of other high schools for popularity or sports pressure. At Wood the focus is not on popularity or sports position. She was involved as much as she wanted to be, and was very involved in cheer and student council. Students don't have the same pressures of other high schools in the area. They can be themselves and obtain self esteem in who there are, not what someone wants them to be.

I went to school here for 4 years. It is a very safe school and there is a huge amount of diversity. I graduated in 1998 and could not have asked for a safer environment. Of course there is the normal peer teasing and pressure but any issues can and will be resolved by staff ASAP. I enjoyed my years at this high school and would recommend it above the others in Solano County.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
