Wilcox High School is one of a kind. There is no other high school where you will find a more relaxed atmosphere with an academic emphasis on studying for mastery, rather than standardized tests and exams. The teachers are kind and love to devote their time and experiences to extracurriculars. Nearly every teacher is involved with the campus outside of the subjects they teach. Some teachers are coaches while others are advisors for clubs and student government. The administration and front office staff are welcoming and care about the success of each student. Over 4 years, I had been able to work with quite a few guidance and wellness counselors at the school. They have an unimaginable amount of enthusiasm directed towards helping students find a career path that is right for them with their interests and grades in mind.
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.
