I recently graduated from this school last year, in 2013. The school isn't necessarily a bad school. But, it definitely isn't the greatest school. It all comes down to funding. With such little money, it's hard to have things to keep people interested in sending their kids to the school. I mean, for instance, the school had to get rid of band. I was in band up until 10th grade, then they cancelled it because I guess they couldn't afford to keep it around anymore. I mean, we only had 11 people in the band when I was in 10th grade. So, it was obvious that band wasn't that important to many students. Although I believe that schools need some kind of musical program for the students, it is what it is. Basically, despite the school's poor funding, and lack of certain classes, it's a great school. Every teacher I had, except one, was super friendly. They all want their students to succeed in class so they can graduate and move on with their lives. The teachers, for the most part, are strict when it comes to such things as homework assignments, but since it's a small town basically everyone knows each other, so it's rather easy to get along with teachers. I give it a rating of 5/5.

W-P is a school district that is stretched to the very limits of its financial means, but still puts the kids first. The teachers and other staff genuinely care about the students and go to great lengths to see that everyone gets the attention they need. It's unfortunate that the school's curriculum and extracurricular activities are both so limited. It bothered me when I was a student there in the 1980s, and bothers me even more now that my own kids attend W-P. This isn't the fault of the school district (I always assumed it was a matter of funding), but it's still the kids who lose out by not having a debate club, or a journalism class, or a swim team (these are only a few examples). As hard as the staff works to get these kids a decent education and prepare them for life after graduation, there's only so much that even the most devoted educator can do without proper funding.

This school is a great school and I have attended since 8th grade and I am a sophmore now. The special ed department works hard not only to help their students achieve but also help them get out of special ed.

This is a wonderful school. Everyone is friendly and kind to one another. The teacher's are committed and love what they do. Always willing to give extra attention to the kids who may need extra help. The office staff is very helpful and kind. They treat the parents and students with respect. The janitors do a great job keeping the school presentable. This school has school spirit and does very well in sports. My children have attended since Pre-K and I could not imagine having them in any other school but this one. Our schools are great!

My experiences at W-P have always been positive both as a student and the parent of a student. The academics at W-P are above average in most areas. Extra curricular activities are very well diversified and most students will find something(s) that will suit their needs and/or desires.
