School Reviews

4   6/8/2021
My child received a great education in the WFSD. The teachers and administrators are very dedicated and have worked tirelessly to increase the graduation rate. There are great programs for advanced students and students with learning disabilities. The population is very diverse. The district's diversity reflects the actual diversity in NYS as a whole. It is a low income, large district with a lot of rental homes and section 8 and there are negativities that come with that but none that have had a negative impact on my child's education.
