my experience at Wilcox was an amazing experience! I met various individuals from diverse cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and areas of origin. This school allowed me to build a comprehensive understanding of how diversity does not mean difference. Even though many of my friends came from different places of the world, we had a majority of similarities besides that of food preference and first language. I loved every part of wilcox, the teachers gave me everything I needed to advance my experience in college classrooms.

Wilcox is an amazing school, because teachers are enthusiastic and always willing to help! Without major stress but with all the benefits on practicing at each student's individual pace, Wilcox ensures that students really learn the material that will aid them in their future careers. The test scores reflected are honest, true, and do not lead kids to stress like in other schools. Good results, from the best, most successful students. Test scores do not define the future, and our alumni's lives reflect that.
Wilcox High School is good for people who love sports. The clubs atmosphere is mostly warm and welcoming, and there is a club for everyone. However, some of the teachers play favorites or are not qualified to teach. The administration seems to try to help, but problems don't usually get fixed. Don't get me wrong, a few of the teachers are amazing, but some just shouldn't be teachers.

In addition, the performing arts department is incredibly weak. As an arts student, I struggle to find opportunities to pursue my craft because the school is so focused on sports. The school counselors are very nice and helpful, though! Even if they don't have an answer right away, they will help you find one.
