On Overall Experience: I've loved going to James Wood High School! I heard about other schools in the area and I truly believe James Wood is the best. We have the best people and I wouldn't have chosen any other school if I had the choice. I have had the opportunity to take some interesting and challenging classes as well as be involved in sports and clubs. I am on the Varsity/competition cheer team and have loved being a cheerleader for the school!

On Administration & Policies: We have the best principal around! He is very fair and does everything he can to make sure everyone has a good high school experience. The dress code is a little strict because we can't wear tank tops but it is overall really fair. We are against bullying and have The Friend's of Rachel Club. Our guidance counselors are very understanding and our there for us every step of the way. My guidance counselor has been very helpful and has helped me conquer my depression.

On Health & Safety: We have a nice and helpful nurse. We are also against bullying and have the FOR club. If there is a fight they take it very seriously.

On Teachers: The teachers are overall pretty nice. They challenge us but they don't really get us ready for the real world.
