Wilson High School is full of teachers that genuinely care about their students wellbeing. If you ever needed someone to talk to, the counselors and teachers and supporting staff are always willing to sit and talk with you. Despite having a few things that could be improved, I had an amazing experience and if I had to do it again, I’d definitely be willing to!
