This is one of the best schools I have ever attended. As a 9th grader this year at WSE I am very pleased with the amount ahead I am. The athletic preparation I had was not as extensive as academic but I am able to say I now play tennis, volleyball, basketball, and soccer at GHS. Thank you to all the teachers that helped me achieve my goals.
