I LOVE WICKSBURG HS, there is nothing like it! It’s the best school in Dothan Alabama and I’m not the only one that will tell you that. Even people from other schools will tell Wicksburg is a great school, with great faculty that truly truly cares about each and every student! My favorite thing about Wicksburg is the teachers and the small town school environment! We all consider each other family! Great place. Great people. Great school.

What I love about Wicksburg High School is the education the school provides. I feel as if my school is definitely one of the top in the County. Each year we produce scores that are the best of the best, and this year there was a 90% graduating and successful rate among the senior class. The teachers also strive to ensure every child is as successful as can be!
Wicksburg High School is hands down one of the best schools in the wiregrass. I am a thirteen year senior, and wouldn't trade it for anything. There are so many administrators, teachers, and students who truly care about you. They want nothing but the best for you, and will help you along the way. My school has many clubs and extracurricular activities to offer. I would recommend my school to anyone, and have nothing but positive and motivating things to say about my school. Go Panthers!
