Such an amazing school with so many kind people the students and teachers will always do their best to help you. You will never feel stressed out from competition or grades etc., everything is well balanced and it is an overall very supportive community. There is such a wide range of academics you can choose from. The arts department is the best I have ever seen compared to any school, I was able to take two courses in AP Studio Art, there is even advanced levels of painting, sculpture, ceramics, etc! The only thing I would like to see Wilcox improve on is their food, quite honestly you can hardly eat it:/ other than that it is the most diverse and encouraging community to grow in!

Transfering to Wilcox High School my sophomore year was a nerve-wracking and weird moment, to say the least. At first glance, walking through those plain and basic white-colored halls gave me the vibe of a high school you would only see in movies. However, I quickly acknowledged and embraced the distinct attributes that make Wilcox a unique school. When it comes to education, I was shocked by the numerous options for Honors and AP classes. More surprising was the developed "culture" where students actually push each other into taking passing these classes. When it comes to School Spirit, their Homecoming, Fantastics, and Battle Of The Classes traditions ranked atop their own league. Even then, there is one thing I wish they would consider. Since their food options are not the greatest, I wish they would allow students to have off-campus privileges. Such an opportunity would allow us to be more responsible and independent, prompting a more enjoyable high school experience.
Wilcox High School is a good school to attend. The teachers at Wilcox are very good at teaching their curriculum. They really do explain the lessons and help students understand the sections. The students are nice and helpful to one another, which is why I have made some very good friends here at Wilcox. The only thing I believe that the school should improve on is the food and should let the upperclassman eat out for lunch. These three years I have been at Wilcox have been interesting but a good time to go through, because in the end it's high school memories I will have. For example, attending the sport events, Fantastics, winterball, and other school events have been really fun with my friends. Therefore, Wilcox High School is a good school to attend.
