School Reviews

This was my safe haven for two and a half years. This is the place that really changed who I am as a person. Here I tried many things and learned to become a better person. Sure Wasson has drugs in it but was public high school doesn't. The current principle is trying to make it a drug free zone but that will never happen. I love this school with a passion. If I had to I would go back. I miss everyone at Wasson. I sadly won't be able to attend this years graduation which sadly means that I won't get to see a large number of my friends graduate.
