I am graduating from this school and I would like to say this school is going downhill also. The kids here are getting worse, disrespectful towards others and mostly teachers, and it is not a good learning environment to be in. In every class I took there was never a kid who didnt interupt the class constantly. Also im disapointed on how much time this school wastes instead of doing something educational. We waste a lot of time on half days espically on "9:30" days theres just no point on going. I learn a lot more when im out of this school. I am taking a college course (dual enrollment) and the class compared t o average classes at this school has better learning experiences with respectful students. Overall this school is a poor environment for education. Teachers are alright but I feel like most of the time they are "babysitting" the students and wasting time disiplining students who are disrespectful instead of teaching. I simply can say im glad im leaving this school very soon.

the school is going downhill really fast, and chances are its only going to get worse. they don't do background checks on teachers so interesting stuff is coming out about that, the kids are mean, and i think about 85% of the school is involved in drugs and alcohol not a very good environment because kids if they have money can get away with almost everything. as a school goes education wise its average. some teachers are helpful and then others are creeps. if you want your kid to grow up well rounded and have morals dont send them to this school/

I recently graduated from this school. I was a new student to this school as well, when I first came there I was bullied often(you know the whole new kid thing and being different) I was considered an outcast and others didn't want much to do with me because of that label more of the popular students gave me. A lot(not all) of the students were loud and obnoxious treating the teachers with disrespect I know most of their parents didn't want them to have. Many students treated class like a joke and the teachers had a hard time teaching what needed to be taught(not every class). The tech school program was quite nice, I went to the Computer Tech program and had a nice time, learned a lot. Though a lot of the students there were just sent there so the tech school program could "babysit" them.

The teachers and the education i recieved there deserve very one of these 5 stars. You'd have a hard time to find a better school in the county

All three of my children have had positive experiences at PW. My oldest is in her freshman year of college and is excelling. I believe this is due to excellent preparation at the high school level. If your child is motivated PW provides many opportunities for success. All three children went to a private grade school and acclamated to PW just fine. Socially they have made many new friends and are enjoying the whole high school experience. Our sports experience has been positive as well although I feel more needs to be done for the GIRLS sports teams. The boy's seem to take priority.

PW has a great music program. My son was very prepared for his major in college thanks to their music program. The athletics department is equally as good. Although PW makes it a bit hard to achieve an equilibrium between academics, athletics and music, they are a well-rounded school for the most part

Extracurriculars are pretty good, teachers could teach to a higher standard.

I am very pleased with the education provided to my children. My oldest transferred from a local Catholic school and excelled at PW. They have a state-of-the-art Science wing and course offerings that are geared towards college prep. She was well prepared for college and received several academic scholarships. My son is currently attending PW as a child in the Special Education department. He has succeeded during his first two years and the attention given to him has been tremendous. Most of his academic goals have been met and the growth I have seen in him is due to the caring teachers and classroom assistants he has encountered along the way.

A very well rounded school, an excellent faculty and a very good athletic department. Great music and arts program as well, you don't see that much anymore with the effects of standardized testing.

I think it was an excellent, well rounded school. The bonus: In 10th grade students have the chance to attend the technical school, great for college prep!

Not that great of a place considering CB west, east, and North Penn are not to far. All of which are far better with athletics and academics.
