Wilson High School Reviews
This school has a fantastic sports, music, and arts program. The same cannot be said about much of the academics. Most of the teachers care about their students, but the curriculum is so poorly constructed for every class it's pathetic. Honors Biology is the most frustrating class I have ever taken because it is all inquiry, and Honors Precalculus was along that level as well. The AP classes I have taken were very well taught, however, probably because the curriculum isn't made by Wilson. The administration is a mess though. A student who possesses and sells marijuana in school is given ISS while a student who pulls the fire alarm is expelled for an entire year.
Probably the best school in the area, if only due to the amazing teachers. The student body was generally very accepting and friendly, spare the occasional incident. Most teachers were very forgiving and laid-back, yet still managed to keep the balance between friend and educator so we all did well. A large amount of clubs are available, and it's very easy to create one. The administration does need to work on their communication however, like with school events and meetings.
I liked the diversity and how the school was very accommodating. We have many school sports and clubs. There are always many ways the school helps the environment and community. With great faculty, there is always a teacher able to help you and provide extra assistance if needed. We are provided chrombooks and I think it is extremely helpful how the teachers encorportate technology into our learning because it is becoming a bigger part of our society.
