I love this school so much! The teachers are very nice and actually care for their students. There is this thing called Tutor Time that we get two times a week. Tutor Time is essentially a free period, but for everyone in the school. We get time to catch up on work or go talk and get help from her teachers.
I would definitely recommend this school for any students that live in Portland, OR.

Wilson high school was a good school, and prepared me for college. However, if you're looking for a diverse high school this is not a good school. They have nice facilities compared to other PPS schools, and teachers always seemed to care about the students. There are many different opportunities to get involved in the school, and many different sports opportunities including club sports. Academically, I thought that Wilson did well in trying to make students succeed. If you tried and worked with the teachers they tried to work with you. Overall, good school with a lot of good qualities.
Most students are friendly, helpful and kind and same with the staff. Not the best school, but definitely not the worst. Definitely everything I wanted out of my high school experience was here. Good theatre department, okay sports teams, friendly atmosphere. It’s a pretty traditional high school experience!
