    Please be patient as we update our website to better meet the needs of our parents and students. We are starting from scratch with a new webmaster, Mr. Carlo Parapara, and new formatting. Sometimes the website will look a little weird, and sometimes the links won't work, but we are making changes that we hope will better serve the Dr. Wise HS community. Thank you!
