Lionel Wilson is a good school with a great high school math department. The school does tend to be unorganized at times but you can feel the community that they try to build. This school does not have many AP or Honors classes but they are working to provide the students with more options in future years. Even though Lionel Wilson is a small school, they are still highly competitive in sports. The lack of resources does not stop these scholars from representing their school the right way.

Although my 9th and 10th grade school years weren't the best, the school's academics have been improving. The Admin team has been working to expose students to STEM careers and now offer classes like STEAM honors and Design Thinking to high schoolers. Teachers have also helped students prepare for the ACT so the average ACT score isn't an 18 anymore by explaining the sections of the test in detail and give tips to avoid wasting time.
Something that I would like to see different is for the school to be more funded. Due to the lack of money we are not getting to experience that "high school life" because we don't have any a sports besides soccer, for any event we want or fun things to do our grade is responsible to fundraise money but only allowed 2 food sales a year! We rarely have any field trips, we've been to a few college tours.
