Wahlert may have some pretty laugh-worthy class sizes considering the freshmen class is only packing a small sum of 106 students, but that may be changing pretty soon. As more and more students continue to transfer into Wahlert from other schools in and out of the tri-state, Wahlert’s student body size is sure to increase.

Aliyah Carter, ‘20, is an all-star volleyball player who has achieved a multitude of caption awards, such as MVP at an array of volleyball competitions, and the honor of being considered one of the best middle blockers in the tri-state area by the Telegraph Herald. Aliyah states that the reason she came to Wahlert was for the volleyball program.

“The coach at Hempstead wasn’t treating me fairly, and I thought Wahlert would be a better fit for me like it was for my brother, and I can say, it definitely was,” Carter stated.

Next up is Isa Harris, ‘19, who says the reason she came to Wahlert was because of a personal conflict at her other school, Tri-State Christian.

“Wahlert had more opportunities, and I really just wanted a change in environment. I wanted to meet new and nicer people.”

Isa states that next year she would like to participate in track, volleyball, and soccer, just as she did at her old school.

Abby Wagner ‘20, decided on making the switch because her brother, Andrew Wagner, ‘16, was previously a student. Wagner said that Andrew really loved it here, and he was more successful here than at his previous school.

“Teachers and students were really mean to me at Roosevelt, and I just wanted better for myself,” Wagner explained. “I like the smaller size here, and I am able to learn a lot more.”

So although all of these girls’ reasons for transferring were a little different and they admit that they all really miss their previous friendships, they decided to pick their educational career over their personal one.
