Wagner is truly remarkable. It is a public high school that manages to offer an excellent education AND has a superb program in the arts and music. Many students participate in the Manhattan Band, performing in alternate years at Carnegie Hall! In one recent year, over a quarter of the graduates were admitted to one of the Specialized High Schools or LaGuardia HS!
Overly large student body, barely kept in check. A large portion of students are rough. This is not a safe environment for fragile children. From all appearances, the school is appealing, with science labs, art classes, a school band, a phys ed department. If your child is a self-sufficient, well-balanced, self-starting and studious person, he may well succeed at Wagner. If, on the other hand, your child has special needs, he will fall through the cracks. I deeply regret sending my son to Wagner.
