As an honors student, my teachers have for the most part been involved and invested in our grades and our lives. Many teachers, however, have only a limited knowledge of subjects beyond their own, and even classes in their own subject matter that are more advanced. A huge variety of teaching styles exist at my school, but most of them are exciting and helpful. Most AP teachers try to formulate their classes like their college counterparts would be, which prepares us for college and is a welcome break from the busy work of standard classes. Basically, in the honors crowd Wilson Central is great!

The school has been great in my four years I've been there. The principals and guidance counselors truly care for the students, and most of the teachers really want to see their students do well. They've been trying to make seniors more ready for college for the past couple years and it's really making a positive difference.
There isn't very much diversity now, but it's been getting better with time. This correlates with the student body also becoming more kind are caring toward each other.
Restrooms are kept nice and functional about 2/3 of the time. Lunches are okay, but there just how public highschools are.
Wilson Central High School has been very kind to me. In my four years of attending, I have never been made to feel as if I had no place in the school. There are numerous clubs and opportunities for students and our principal is very involved. I truly wouldn't have wanted my high school experience to have taken place anywhere else. I have grown and come to know myself in this school, I would highly recommend this school to anyone who would appreciate a learning environment that challenges you and a principal along with teachers and staff that are genuine, kind, patient, accepting, and a friend to all.
