The above rankings are very deceiving because such scores don't always measure how good a school really is. Rather than blame the school, I find fault with disconnected parents who take no interest in their child's education and offer no support or reinforcement at home. My personal experience as a WBHS parent has been HIGHLY favorable. The school has a positive, safe environment and the staff communicates well. My students have found their classes engaging and they feel that their teachers at WBHS really care about their success. My kids were not just a number here, instead, they felt valued and challenged to reach their full potential. WBHS has done an excellent job preparing them for the next step to college and for success in life.
