  • Every school has its problems but there are some very good teachers there. My engineering teacher is very tough on us but he really will do anything to help us with anything. I would have dropped out if not for teachers like him that are all over campus.

  • this school had problems yes. but i disagree with the 1st poster. i too went there and i got a certificate in the program i was in. i graduated pretty high in my class and i think it is a great school, to judge a school the way this person did was wrong, they didnt like the principle, even though nobody seemed to have a problem with her as long as they werent in trouble, they are strict. i took the TABE test and i can grantee that WFHS does teach what they should! and more! i got a 12.9 on EVERY subject that was tested. (12.9 is the max you can get and is at least graduating level!) dont judge the school for the ppl you dont like!

  • I CAN SAY AS A JUNIOR AT FSU THIS SCHOOL IS COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT! I WAS THERE FOR FOUR YEARS AND LEARNED LITERALLY NOTHING! I WAS ACTIVE IN MANY CLUBS AND SPORTS FOR FOUR YEARS. I SAW A LACK OF LEADERSHIP WITHIN THE STAFF AND LEARNED LITERALLY NOTHING FROM THESE PEOPLE! DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS THERE PARENTS. I AM A 21 YEAR OLD COLLEGE STUDENT AND CAN SAY THIS SCHOOL DOES NOT COMPARE! PREP STUDENTS FOR COLLEGE! ANY OBLIGATIONS ASK FOR THE STUDENT OF THE YEAR FOR 2007! IT IS ME! AND I CAN SAY THIS SCHOOL PERFORMS SUB PAR IN MANY EFFORTS. THERE ARE GOOD TEACHERS BUT BAD ADMIN! GO TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS I AM 21 AND PROMISE U THIS SCHOOL IS BELOW AVERAGE! (...) IS THE REASON
