I love attending WPS! Most of the teachers are very understanding, caring, and empathic. There are numerous people willing to help you if necessary, from the guidance counselor, to the principal, to teachers. Someone is always willing to help, and I created wonderful connections with a few of my teachers. Obviously like any school there are some teachers one may like better than others, but that is to be expected. I felt that the education was very good. The opportunities to take more rigorous classes was always available, and we even had the option to take online courses if the school didn't offer a class we wanted in person. The only downside is the lack of diversity. However, I think it's definitely getting better as the years go by. The food is average, as expected from a public school. Salads at the high school are definitely not enough to fill up a growing teen though.

As a child that grew up in Wilmington, moving to Wakefield for middle school years and then returning to Wilmington high school I am strongly aware of Wilmington education. Wilmington public schools have extremely succeeding students, that are very educated. Majority of the teachers are great teachers that love students and care not only about their education but about other things that occur in their lives. There is however the occasional teacher who posts the homework an hour before class or assigns hours of homework a night but that mainly occurs in the advanced classes. Wilmington public schools is just like a normal public school, small cafeteria, strict teachers. The principal, Linda Peters is a great person, however has the occasional messup, she is extremely nice and wants to do whatever she can to help, and most people, or teachers are like that.
Wilmington Public Schools, particularly the high school, are a great learning environment. The best aspect of the school system is the people. The teachers are both great people, and talented instructors. As a recent graduate, I can claim that the school well prepared me for college, the schedule, and the work load.
