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.
My three years at Wilcox have been defined by exemplary academic support from teachers, spirited rallies with my fellow classmates, and a multitude of successes in sports, something that not only points out my own love for Wilcox, but also displays Wilcox's unique ability to develop the student holistically. Here at Wilcox, students have the opportunity to better themselves in any passion they pursue, whether it's through our 60+ clubs covering academic, social, interest, or cultural-based organizations, or possibly through or award-winning sports programs, and even through the Arts or through student government. Wilcox has definitely provided me with an unparalleled education. The fact that our AP participation rate and pass rate are considerably higher than the national average displays the fact that Wilcox provides excellent opportunities for students to succeed, given the diverse range of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds of our school.
