Wilmington Area High School Reviews
The tennis team needs courts. The team has been around for 30+ years and the school hardly gives anything to support us. We have to practice at Westminster College’s courts and they are getting sick of it. There is plenty of property to build our own courts and it would improve the program tremendously. Yes, it may be pricey, but if it was the ever-so-praised football team, it wouldn’t be considered expensive. Some people don’t even know we have a tennis team because of this! Please do something!
Wilmington's best assets is its programs.Our unique organizations one can get involved in include FFA, FBLA, Peer leadership and more.We have an abundance of sports one can get involved in; football, soccer, track and field, basketball and bocce.The students attending are not limited to one club, sport, hobby.We are a diverse, school that encourages all to pursue their passions. Wilmington could improve on is showing more school spirit; we have no pep rallies.Spirt week is always a bust for us.These complications can be improved so easily with just the help of getting our school together and repping the blue and gold colors.
The teachers are constantly involved and more than willing to help students achieve their goals academically. The majority are advisors of clubs as well, and make sure we are staying involved one way or another. The environment is very welcoming and within the first couple of weeks, it’s sure that you know just about everybody. The small population makes it easy to get to know your classmates and make friends as well. Teachers in each program (such as agriculture, technology, or even the arts) will do whatever it takes for their students to pursue their dream of studying in such field beyond high school.
