  • i am a student of Wolfson High School, i like it even though there is a lot of fighting and drama. there are teachers and students who are nice, kind, and respectful to others. some people say they never learn anything from the teachers, its because they never pay attention or care about learning.

  • I went to this school in the 1980's. It was more like a military camp rather than a school. I flunked out because of the hate harbored by most of the staff there. They had zero interest in teaching kids.
    Yard duty was their forte'.

  • The lack of discipline that I have witnessed in the halls is nothing less than disgraceful. The students run the school and the teachers cower to the vulgarity and threats displayed by students. Hordes of students walk the halls constantly during class, while talking on cell phones and listening to IPods. There are good classes within the school, but most are corrupted with the poor behavior of students.
