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 is home to quite a few very talented and well-rounded teachers and faculty. The English department, in my experiences, shined the brightest of them all. Also, the lead principal, Travis Mayfield, is very accountable and works extremely hard for the school and community. He has the well-being of his school and employees at the top of his list. The downfall to me of the school may be the math department, which does not seem up to par with the others in quality and quantity. Overall, the workers at Wilson Central provide a great environment for most of its students and are very beneficial to their future.
