Welcome to Wantagh High School!
 

ELLIS ISLAND FIELD TRIP RESCHEDULED:

With the safety of our students in mind given the nature of the trip and the predicted heavy rainfall, the decision was made to reschedule the April 6th Ellis Island field trip. The new date of the trip is Wednesday, April 26th. The original permission slip that you approved and signed will be sufficient for the rescheduled date. Should you have any questions, please contact Pat Calosso (World Language Supervisor) or your child's teacher.

 
 
Mission Statement:
 
Wantagh High School will maintain a supportive environment which encourages all students to develop a positive self-image through the mastery of those educational outcomes best suited to their individual goals and potential. Family, school and community will join together to meet students' educational needs as well as to provide the skills needed to meet the continuing challenge of life-long learning and responsible citizenship in our rapidly changing society.
