Overall I think Wilton High School is a great school. We have access to a lot of resources, including wide course and extracurricular variety. I've had a generally positive experience with the student body, there are a lot of students and many different groups to fit in with. On average the teachers are good, though there have been some battles with administration over trying to get certain teachers fired - that's a concerning trend. Wilton is also definitely lacking in the diversity department, as most people are wealthy and white (more as a result of the surrounding area, not the school). Overall great education and resources for a public school.

Wilton High School prepares students for college and life beyond, however that preparation brings a lot of stress. The environment can be quite stressful, but they do offer resources to help with that stress. The school spirit is quite evident, and the sports and academics are exemplary. Most teachers enjoy their jobs and help run countless clubs and activities. There is an excess amount of homework and teachers between subject areas do not communicate well in alleviating the work load and stress. The school is very safe and has relatively new facilities, although there is little that is appealing to the eye as the windows and designs are minimal. There is a rumor that the building was designed by a prison designer, and I can see this being true.
WHS produces successful students who are eager to continue their education at a competitive collegiate level. Majority of the students go to upper tier or highly competitive schools thanks to the advanced education. Teachers offer difficult curriculum but always look for achievement in their students. This year the district has implemented block schedule which has helped alleviate the stress of students and attempt to build more skills for the real world. The student body is polite and respectful, but can be competitive with each other and grades. As for food, there is a wide selection of healthy options. There are a lot of ways students can get involved in the school through clubs and sports.
