The school is very small, so that makes it very easy to get to know the staff an other students of the school. The curriculum can be very difficult at times, but typically the teachers are fairly easy and easy-going. There is a lot of favoritism towards the students of Williams Township as their parents donate money toward the school. Sometimes when students struggle, the teachers blame it completely on the students, rather than it being an equal issue between both the teacher and the student. However, a large majority of the staff does care about the student-body and hopes to see the students prosper.

Wilson Area High School really helped me be a better person and taught me how to be better student, be organized, and be patient with everything I do or learn. Wilson really has a great environment. The students and faculty make you feel as if you are family. The teachers are very helpful they helped me a lot through my freshman to senior year of high school. The school never makes you feel like you are out of place or uncomfortable. The principle and the vice principle are really nice and are also very helpful they help you with a lot of things they sometimes check up on you if they see that you are falling behind and they figure out a way or game plan to make sure that you are back on track. The students are also really nice. I think personally that this school really helped me education wise and really encouraged me to get straight A's through all my years of high school.
The best thing about Wilson is the sense of family and community within both the faculty and the student body. Other schools have issues with bullying and shooting threats, but my school is full of such welcoming people that it will be hard to say goodbye. I have made so many friendships over the years and strong bonds with my teachers, so when I have to leave a part of me will always be proudly belonging to Wilson. My academic success is because of my high school, but it is the people who I can thank for my happiness.
