I've always liked being at Wilmington, it's a normal High School. There are students here who care about their education and there are also students who don't care about their education. One of the things I wish we could try to control more is the way people act in between classes and how we deal with it, and if we have a consistent student who is always causing disruptions, I wish we could do something more than just detention because those aren't working. The academics at Wilmington have always been a strong plus for me because I choose to push myself. We have many college prep classes available to us, and I believe that I am going to be ready for college when it comes around because I am used to being pushed in difficult classes. Overall, Wilmington High School is a good place to learn and push to become the best student possible.

I've been a student in Wilmington since middle school, but has flopped around to other districts in between. I've left and came back about 4 times or so. It's a diverse place to be, with many different kinds of people and cultures, and most of everyone is very accepting of all students. Bullying isn't really that bad at all, but fighting can get out of hand here. We also have a lot of troublemakers, but they're not too bad, either. All in all, it's a pretty good school for me, personally.
Wilmington High School is a place that has gone down hill over the years. When I was younger it was a nice place, I mean the education was decent and teachers tried their hardest. Now that I am in High School I would say the school has become so overwhelmed with the troubled kids, more than education for kids that care. Our school will go buy the troubled kids snacks and talk to them all day, and It takes me 4 months to get a counselor to talk with me about my college plans that i’m often behind on because I can’t get a response from them and they say they are always busy. The school has not prepped us for college whatsoever- my whole junior year they never told any of us about applying so i had to do research and learn myself. Overall the education isn’t that great either. The school just needs to be fixed up and I don’t think it can be at this rate.
