  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on January 04, 2010
  • Rating: 2 (2 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school would be much improved with a new HVAC system, for the old one is completely inefficient. The ventilation is terrible- sinus infections are commonplace. The carpet in many of the classrooms is 25 years old. There could be mold in the walls and crawl spaces. Most of the teachers, however, are good and the honors classes are also very good, but the building itself is 40-years-old and has suffered roof leaks over the years. WF has many enthusiastic students, though, and this is its best asset.
