My experience at Glen A. Wilson High School was memorable! It was the most crazy, life changing, exciting four years of my life. I will never forget my first day and my last entering through those gates. The school always had a welcoming feeling with open arms to help with whatever was needed. Im not going to lie, those four years were the hardest to complete. But in between those hard times, we all had memorable moments with our peers and our faculties. Wilson had the best spirit I have ever seen. On both our wins and losses, everyone was always so supportive and uplifting. I know forsure that I will never forget the friendships that were made at Wilson. Those four years couldn't have been the same without the friends who stood by my side and pushed me to strive for my best.

The teachers that I had were great! You can tell that they really care about you as a person and as a student. The academics were extremely competitive as well, which is perhaps the best aspect of this school. Besides these things, there was really nothing too special about this school. The school lunch was plain awful, textbooks were old, and classrooms were not the best either. Nonetheless, I'd say it is a pretty average school overall.
As a student of Glen A. Wilson High School my experience has been great! The students at Wilson High School are very friendly and inviting. Students are courteous to each other and they treat the school's faculty with respect. During my four years at Wilson I have been part of the advanced placement program and the International Baccalaureate program which have both challenged me academically and helped me push myself to become a better student. One thing that I would like to see change at Wilson is the level of importance which they place for the different sports that are offered. Some sports receive greater funding and attention than the others, for example football and track receive the majority of the funding and publicity while sports like swim and soccer do not. I would like to see equal funding and greater representation for all of Wilson's sports.
