A very good school, especially for a public school. Fantastic Latin Teacher in particular. Not very diverse- it's in a wealthy, mostly white neighborhood.

WJHS, Wilmette Junior High School, overall is a very great school. They have a lot of programs for kids interested in them, such as Orchestra, Science Olympiad, Track etc. If you put in work you will get great experience. On the other hand, a lot of what this school teaches is boring/uninteresting, so a lot of kids don't do the work and fall behind. There is also a very dominate social structure, with groups and rankings. You can be a nerd, jock, wannabe, and you'll probably be stereotyped that way. I was lucky because I found my group and was happy with it, but there was a lot of drama in the school.
Some kids are afraid to speak up in their learning environment, but at Wilmette Junior High they encouraged you to make mistakes! They didn't want you to be afraid to speak up and give your opinion.
