Wilton High School Reviews

Wilton High School, while strong in academics, is rather average. Despite having an excessive budget, many of the students at WHS are not very dedicated to their educations. Though there are many strong-willed and devoted students who genuinely enjoy learning, they are often outnumbered by their apathetic peers who just want to graduate. There are many departments in which WHS has no lacking, and these include ignorant students and nicotine addicts. Considering Wilton is a very affluent and Caucasian suburb, many students are either uneducated or merely prejudiced. For many years, minority peers have been subjugated to anti-Semitic remarks, casual racism, and a myriad of other issues over which the administration has taken little action. Despite these flaws amongst the student body and administration, the teachers at Wilton High School are dedicated to helping students learn and grow and have been the highlight of my experience at Wilton High School.

Wilton High School excelled in providing me with a solid education and optimal college preparedness. The teachers were above average and so were the facilities and resources. I even made good friends here. Of course they changed quite a bit over the years but that is quite normal as maturing young adults. So what made me ascribe only 3/5 stars to Wilton? This high school severely lacks a grasp, appreciation, and presence of different cultures, traditions, and ways of life, at least in the school setting. White privileged culture is the sole culture that is prominent in this school which is reinforced by many of the surrounding high schools that operate in similar manners. Being part of a sheltered predominantly white high school only proves to be a hurtle in later life. This lack of understanding about different people's ways of life creates difficulties in communicating and relating to people, thus causing an inability or decreased ability to form a broad span of relationships.
I entered Wilton High School my freshman year. It was difficult to make friends at first but I had the support of many great teachers. The school provided many sport options which helped me settle into the new school and new town, they offered many clubs as well which helped me get involved very easily. The school itself is very big but it is filled with helpful teachers and kind students to help you through it.
