This is the worst school in New york city. Although the teachers are nice and work as hard as they can, this is not a safe school to go to. The students are very rude and mean, they don't have respect for anyone. Lots of nasty things happen during breaks and lunch. If you are interested in applying to this school SAVE yourself because it's not worth it at all. Honestly home school or online school is ten times better then this horrible school
I have two sons at Wadleigh Secondary School (a senior and a junior) and they are both very active in the choir. Wadleigh imay not be the best school in New York City, but I remind my sons that it's their commitment to their own education that's more important than anything else. The Principal, Ms. Hall runs the school with dedication, compassion and understanding. I *love* Wadleigh and its very dedicated faculty.
This school isnt bad... I go to wadleigh and Im president of the 10th grade.. I love wadleigh!! this school has a bad reputation, but if you are actually a student attending the school, you'd notice that wadleigh isnt as bad as people say it is.. I am 14 in 10th grade, I get 90's and above, and i never had a fight before.. In my opinion, wadleigh is better than most of the other high schools located in harlem!
Wadleigh is not one of the worst schools but is indeed a bad school. My child is in this school and i cant seem to transfer her out. She doesnt like the school. Her grades went from 80s & 90's to 60's this school made my daughter worse.
This school turned out to be one of the most horrible experiences of my life. My son went from a wonderful boy to someone almost unrecognizable. I had to take him out of Wadleigh in order for him not to get lost in the system. There are only a few teachers that care and by that time is already too late.
I was very disgusted by the lack of school spirit ,especially in the principle. The principal is always in her office ,and very rarely interacts with the parents. The lack of books,and school furniture is also an issue.
