Going to Wilcox has been by far my favorite experience. With the ups and the downs, the school helped me grow as a student and person. The teachers, especially, were so caring and helpful. Some would take time out of their free time to teach me on subjects I did not understand and their feedback was helpful as well. It was such a fun experience going to this high school because the workload taught me a lot as well. Wilcox is such a diverse school because there were clubs and school events that illustrated everyone of different cultures. Not only that, Wilcox had one of the best school spirits!

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.
