NRW isn't a bad school compared to some others. However, it has some problems. As of now, it offers one AP class, and that is art. More APs should be offered. Secondly, students are often treated like middle schoolers. However, some of the kids here deserve to be treated as such. There are some great teachers here, though. I enjoy learning from the majority of my teachers, and they are very knowledgeable. Most people are easy to get along with, but a lot of drama starts here, usually over something that isn't worth wasting time over. If you're a parent, you don't need to have a ton of apprehension about sending your child here..it really isn't that bad of a school. If you're a student reading this...STOP THE DRAMA!!! You guys are going to have bigger problems than X student cheating on Y.

I'm currently enrolled in North Rose Wolcott High School, although most of the attention is on soccer, it has great after school programs. I'm currently not in any sports, but I'm happily a part of the Masterminds team. We have a lot of smart students in this school, although most of their brains are intent on the internet and other not- so- school friendly subjects.

I am currently in the NR-W high school and there is to much focus on being a good school sports wise but there are a lot of other things that they need focus on. We should try to become a better school by showing each other respect. Sports is not why we are in school if it was I would fail because there are so many problems in sports and we are suppose to show pride to what our sports players no not cool! This school needs to care about more than sports.

Our school has discipline when it suits the administration. There is lack of pride in how our school looks. They worry too much about the soccer team and not enough about how our kids do on state test, etc.

Well my school is very friendly and the teachers are all cool. They are a little strick but in the end NRW made my high school experience fun and i would send my kids there in the future.

I just graduated from this school in June 2004 and I think that NRW is a great school. Yes maybe somethings can be changed about how the school runs but don't all school districts? This school has taught me a lot and I feel as if maybe I have a better education then many people I meet. I am thankful I went to NRW and wouldn't want to change that. I have pride and faith in our school district. I would recommend this school to anyone. I may not be a parent but I was the one that went through the district, I think I would know whether it was good for me. It is kind weird but I do miss going to school. NRW made me feel safe and I had fun in school. Kudos to NRW. Cougars rock.

I'm a African American who attended the NRW school system. I must say that race has nothing do with the education that you receive there. My sister was the first African American exchange student at NRW. My siblings and myself all enjoyed the various clubs and organized sports that the school had to offer. Don't place blame. Figure out what you can do to make things better for yourself.

There are times when the teachers k-12 need a reality check that all kids are not the same and can not be treated as such. It boils down to if you do good then you are a good student if you need extra help to get through the k-12 then the parnets need to fight for this. They seem to want to label these kids and put them on meds...I will say that some kids do need medication but some kids do not they need a diffrent way of learning and this should be recognized by the teachers.

There is less opportunity for African American students at this school. Seems to me if your parents got money then you get all the special treatment. From the classroom to the athletics department.
