Wilson High School is a single campus, Pre-K-12 school, where everyone gets to know each other. As someone who has attended Wilson since Pre-K, I can confirm that the faculty and staff genuinely care about their students and want to see them succeed. If there is one thing that I could change about Wilson, it would be to have a Creative Arts class. There are many gifted students that currently have no outlet for their creativity. Overall, my experience at Wilson High School has been a positive one. I will forever be proud to call myself a Wilson Warrior!

I like how Wilson is a very close group and everyone is always there for one another. Wilson High School is not a very big school, so the teachers have fewer students so they can focus on each student a little more. Most of the teacher at Wilson is nice and really want to see you succeed. They all try and do their very best at teaching in many styles that apply to everyone in the classroom. I do, however, wish our school had people talk to us more as seniors about scholarships and applying for college. I would not have wanted to attend any other school throughout high school and elementary.
It was very welcoming, and all the teachers were kind and very helpful. Every teacher wanted the best for their students and they did everything in their power to help them succeed. I’m truly thankful for the experiences I have from this school.
