I would highly not reccomend this school. the staff is not student friendly and extremly biased in their decisions. Students accused with truency when parents have called in. lack of organization. seniors left with destroyed school get no appreciation and respect instead they are treated like 7th graders. if you are looking for a fair well balanced school WDC is NOT the place!
