I perform very well in this school (straight A’s and NHS) thanks to the great teachers here. The people here are great and I believe anyone should come here if they want to learn the most.

Ten years ago, it was a great school. Now, leadership is a joke and the district would rather shut the school down than support it.

It is a great hometown school. They say it takes a village to raise a kid. So thankful Wakefield is my village.
