Wilkerson is a great school. I was told it was a bad school. My response was there is no such thing as a bad school. It's the child with no parent's guidance. Wilkerson has a caring Principal. She made sure her students follow the rules.

Wilkerson Middle School is a community school with children bussed into the community. Students from all kinds of background attend this school. I have observed the worst students make a change for the better in this school becauseof consistency. I have observed caring teachers and kind teachers. It is a safe school and great for learning.

I am very impressed with Wilkerson Middle School. Ms. Burnes has worked very had to make this school successful. There is always something exciting going on at Wilkerson. The students must follow the dress code daily. On the first day of school each year, students are given all the supplies needed to begin the school year. The parents are only required to person the novel that would be read by the whole school for the first nine weeks.Consistency is seen throughout the school. The game room is big at Wilkerson. This is a great incentive for the students who maintain a seventy or bove in each subject including physical education. Thee theatre arts program is great. Several plays have been performed by the teachers and students. Plays such as: Annie, Tom Sawyer, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, Scrooge and this spring the department will feature 'The Wizard of OZ'.

I love wilkerson middle school... The principal is a great leader and so is the assistant principal.. The kids tested the highest on the ayp test 3 years in a row.. They were the highest tested school in birmingham city public middle school's tested.. Which was all of them. They have a great athletic department. I have two kids that has been with mrs.Burns since lewis elementary. When mrs.Burns went to wilkerson , lewis went down and wilkerson scores grew higher. She is there to make sure that your kids learn. I attended wilkerson my self as a child, and the learning wasn't as near as good as it is now. My oldest son will be leaving birmingham district and starting county schools because the high schools are not as good. I am confident that he will do just fine , because wilkerson prepared him! let's go wildcats , let's go!

Terrible school, no learning taking place, way too many students per teacher, no leadership. A concerned parent.
