Great school system, kids are always very prepared for college. It is not uncommon to see students getting into the top schools upon graduation, as it is a very college-driven student body. Only about 3% of kids every year decide not to go to college. It isn't very diverse though, if that is something that would bother you. I would say that our school is very inclusive so I wouldn't be worried about that. It is also very safe, so the point where I'd feel comfortable just leaving my laptop of phone in the hallway and coming back and hour later to find it still there. Everyone is super friendly!

Wilton High School is extremely precollege oriented, and the academics are difficult, but manageable. The sports teams can be good, but many of the coaches are outdated and don't know what they are doing. The arts department have good resources. The school itself is very old and needs to be redone. There are parts that haven't been touched since the 70's. One good thing about the teachers are that they are always available and are easy to contact. The majority of them care about your success and future beyond high school.
My experience going through the Wilton Public Schools has been overall great. From kindergarten to my senior year, I have had amazing teachers, courses that I am interested in, friends, activities, and a good supportive environment. Teachers in Wilton genuinely care about their students. I have visited my teachers from kindergarten, elementary, and middle school. I am still close with teachers from previous years such as my science teachers from sophomore and junior year. Throughout high school, there are certain mandated courses that all students must take. Starting sophomore year, students can select courses that they wish to take that stem from the regulated courses. There are so many courses to pick from that there is always more to do. My closest friends are in my grade and lower ones as well. I have also expanded my group of friends through activities and sports. All clubs and activities are open to everyone to join.
