Wilton High School Reviews

Wilton High School has a great reputation for a reason: its challenging academics, great teachers, warm environment, and safety. The expectations at Wilton High School are high; everyone in Wilton considers attending a 4-year college after college as set in stone, and doing anything else is frowned upon. The school is divided into two academic groups: those who take all honors and APs and strive for As, and those who take the easiest classes possible and hope to have above a 3.0, but if you didn't ask someone about their grades, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Some of the teachers I had at WHS are my best friends. I'm writing this for scholarship entry

Wilton High is a school like no other. In just recent months, I have witnessed several instances of discrimination (swastikas, racial slurs, etc) - most of which administration has done nothing about. The school consists of white, upper middle class Christians. There are obvious cliques, but new students shouldn't have a problem finding one that "fits" so long as they are outspoken. As for the teachers... I think most students have an adult they could go to in school, but I get the sense that forming relationships with students either isn't encouraged, or the teachers just don't know that their job is more than textbooks and test scores. There is a good number of course offerings and academics are highly competitive, but depending on where you're coming from, you'll find that the town is in it's own bubble.
I spent four very fun years here! Wilton High School definitely well-prepared me for college. The teachers always helped me when I needed it, and I made some of my best friends here.
