    This school is in desperate need of a complete overhaul. Textbooks are outdated and/or there are not enough for every child. The technology is way under par. Most of the teachers do the very best they can with what they are provided. Too much focus is placed on athletics/gym and not enough on core subjects. No need for gym five days a week and only 2 and a half hours in two weeks for history/social studies. Art isn't even taught in 7th grade. Improvements are definitely needed at this school.

    We love our students! Every staff member works hard to help students obtain their goals and reach their full potential. Wolf Ridge needs the money to improve the technology that we lack in our building. We want more for our students. Please help us. Thank you for your consideration.

    This is a fair school I yet to have been called into the office because he prayed or mentioned God at school. I have been into it w/ an unnamed teacher about classroom behavior She tried to impress upon me that it was not my business. Wrong parent to say that to. Over all I'll give it a three all American schools are not doing enough teaching and to much PCing
