Wolcott High School Administration is very inconsistent when applying policies to individual students. Dress code policies are CONSISTENTLY ignored for some students (athletes, overweight students etc) and harshly dealt with for other students. It is a athlete-centric school. Over the past couple of years the school has brought in many good academic programs, however lack seriously in dealing with the psychological well-being of the students. I have never seen a high school with as many cliques and cyber bullying as this school. It is very unfortunate that the majority of the student population feels like the "don't' belong".

I just started at wolcott and went through the school. I rather enjoy it but it does have some downs. I'd give it a five but some of teachers and students (mostly the sophomores) bother me a lot.

many people think that students here are the worst behaved but after all we've been through over the years can you blame us? Please understand that we are the way we are because of the heartache and pain we have felt rip to all the angels or schools and town have lost

I think WHS, along with most public high schools,are behind the times. Worrying more about discipline than academics and esteem. My children are losing interest in learning and feel worse about themselves than when they started high school. I think most public high schools could use a real re-vamping starting with including some real computer teaching and removing some of the older, less interested teachers. I see the kids books, they don't look much different than 25 years ago when I was in school. How sad is that? Can't wait to be done with it all. We spend money on a cop at each school, but ask any Senior some basic History questions, and you will see the lack of knowledge. Also, many administrative changes in position over the last 4 years, new principals every year. Can't wait to be done with it all. Just one woman's opinion.

The teachers and staff are very friendly and always ready and willing to help. Wolcott high school not only teaches you things found in textbooks, but things you need for life. Wolcott High prepares you with the necessary knowledge you need for life.
