I graduated from Wagner in 2010 and I have to say that I take pride in that. Coming from an athletic and AP stand point, Wagner has prepared me for my future.

I believe non of this would have been possible if it were not for God and my high school Karen Wagner!!! Read less

My son is graduating from Wagner this year. I have to agree with some of the students that say that all schools have issues. Each year Wagner is making progress!!

Alot of the reviewers here think that our school is one that will never amount to anything, but what they fail to see is the heart that some of the students and the teachers of Karen Wagner High School have, sure we may not be the perfect school, but which school is really? I do attend Wagner High School

Half of the students here clown around way too much but the opposing half believe in making a difference in their world. Some have great dreams like becoming a bio-chemist or going into the medical field, so to those who think that this school is for the birds I pity you. Read less
