I attended this school for 2 months before moving back to my home town. I personally say the school is the best school I've ever went to ever. I'm currently in the 9th grade but I do plan on coming back to Wilcox Central High next year and also graduating from there.

The extracurricular activities are great and the students in this school system have tremendous talents and the band is improving and need more members now that half of them have met all the requirement and ready for the college life, the sports is great but as all department have lost a great deal because of seniors graduating the time is now to encourage others to get involved. The parental involvement is very limited we as parents need to get more involved and visit the school every chance you get.

Apathetic administrators. But the teachers are great...Really great...They have energy and resolve despite all the apathy found upstairs.

I am a graduate of wilcox central and I feel that WCHS is great. The JROTC program is top notch and it prepaired me for my career in the airforce. Leading me to join as an e-3 instead of an e-1. The agricultural department is great as well. WCHS is a graet place to learn and train for your future. SrA A.Pettway USAF

Posted December 15, 2004

I am a student of Wilcox Central. I have been attending this school going on four years. I am now a senior. And by being here this amount of time I have witnessed a lot of things that happened here such as violence. Although this has happened it still doesn't make it a bad school in fact we are one of the best schools in the atheletes area. and our academics program are highly rated as excellent. so we are a good school.
