Wilmington has a lot of banking and gas stations. I currently go to Wilmington as well as Southern State Community College. At Wilmington High School, the teachers are very nice and always offer help. Half of the students don't behave and don't try very hard in school, while the other half is hard working and join extracurricular activities often. It has community service opportunities and FFA. At Southern State, I go through a CCP program with my High school.

Wilmington is a place for people who don't really want to do much with their lives or are afraid of change. Wilmington rarely changes, but when it does it's something that will not help children. For example, there are over 5 banks now as well as a marijuana facility. Drugs are a tremendous issue in this city and I can't wait to get a good education so I can provide a better life not only for myself but for my family too.
Wilmington is a small town with average schools. It has beautiful countryside, but not many opportunities.
