    This school really puts in a lot of effort and I commend them for that. But they are overwhelmed by overcrowding gangs drugs. My child has been attacked inside the building and I am looking for a new school

    I absolutely love this school it is such a nice school. I get to learn so many things while i'm in wagner throughout the entire day. The teachers are great guidance counselors are amazing and deans are cool but most important of all the entire staff of the school is very dedicated. If you live in Staten Island this is one of the schools you want to go to. Good Luck in this wonderful school!!!

    i'm currently a sophomore at susan wagner and it's an INCREDIBLE school . the principal gets involved with the kids and and the fundraisers for every academy and he walks around the lunchroom sometimes just to talk to students he's a great man ; the teachers find the perfect balance between being someone a student can joke around and talk to and being an educator ; susan wagner has different academies and classes for almost any occupation you like . there are so many extra curricular activities there's a club for almost anything you could think of . the school-wide events are numerous and the staff makes it a place you genuinely want to go to every day .

    Wagner is an awesome school. Especially the theatre art and music departments...most importantly the theatre...we put on productions that are claimed to be broadway level by the newspaper and by city officials.

    Our school has a wide variety of programs so kids my age and older don't just be serious and have education but we all have fun in the process. If this happens in other schools than we can make school fun so we can have a easier way of learing things faster as well. We have many clubs and activities anybody can join without any force from anyone. All schoold should have someting like that to have activities that are part of the school but aren't manditory. I am a freshmen and the day i stepped into this school I knew that i would love it here. When the first day was over I just wanted to stay in school the rest of the day. The teachers that we have are not only educate us but also teach us how we can do somethign when we put our mind to it. If you are an 8th grader that migth be looking for a good High School to go to i would definitly recommend Susan E Wagner High---home of the Falcons!!! =) this school
