My great grand daughter is a fourth generation Wilson student. I suppose I have nothing to compare to Wilson, but my experience over the years with the staff and the level of learning speaks for itself. Especially through my family. I am over 65. I attended Wilson and went on to become a Registered Nurse. My son was drum major and participated in band for 9 years before he graduated. He went on to become a Physical Therapy Aide My daughter graduated there and now is an employee of the school. My grandson graduated as well. Now, I have a first grader there and feel confident she will receive the best education just like her family before her. Great school and staff!

I was a student at Wilson High School, and I am enraged at some of the comments I am seeing about my alma mater, especially from parents and students who cannot use proper grammar or spelling. To those parents, take an interest in your student and make the first move to call the teacher or principal. I am sure they will make the time to talk to you. As for the students, if you'd listen in your classes, you wouldn't make such terrible spelling and grammatical errors in your posts. I attended WHS from 1st grade until I graduated, and was always encouraged by my teachers. They were always looking out for the students' best interest. They were also fair in their punishment of those students who chose to disrupt their classrooms.

I'm new to the area but I have had over 8 family members attend this school and now my children go here. It's a great environment.

I love my school. I have been to many and this by far has been the best. I am a cheerleader here and the athletics are really good, as well as academics. I recomend this school.

I think there needs to be more communication between the parents and teachers more so in high school than element. Kids fall into more stuff in high school, than kindergarden, and I think there should be more communication between the principle and students (we have a new principle this year and I dont even know his name no letter from him nothing, I know it is also our responsibility to communicate but believe me I have tried, if you are not on any sporting event, or cheerleader, or a honor roll student they don't have time for you.

Well, i came to wilson in 1992 and graduated in 1997 those were some of the best years in my life. Every year for me there got better and better, and the teachers were great for examle: coach stejskal,coach bohon, they treated like family. The sports program was great when i played, i loved every bit of it, but all in all the students are what makes a school great, think about it!

I went to Wilson and graduated in 1997. I had been going there since kindergarten and it was always and awesome school. My principal in 8th grade was Mr. Thompson and he was the best. The teachers are really caring and helpful and the didn't really act like they had favorites. The students were all equal. Some got in more trouble but that was their fault. Well, overall Wilson is one of the best schools in the county. Thank you for listening..

As a Jr. High student at Wilson I can say that this is a okay school. I don t think we get as much education as other Lauderdale county schools. Our school is very big and have many varieties of people. Also I think there should be more clubs and such for these grades. there are many fights here and bad things go on. still this schools is ok, but it is not the best. so keep this in mind as you choose a school!

Wilson School is not really that bad. It depends on the type of person you are.If you don't do your work then sure your going to get in trouble.If you do what you are told and stay out of trouble then your years will be fine.I do belive the principle should give more support to band, tennise, and the golf team.His focuss is on the cheerleaders and football players.Overall this school is not bad, but by know means is it perfect.- Student from Wilson

I am a student at Wilson High School.Wilson is the best school I have ever attended.I have to agree that it is not a ''perfect school'',but you cannot honestly say that there is a perfect school.I am in Jr. High and the years I have attended I enjoyed ever minute.To me ,Wilson is a wonderful school.The teachers are nice and they know what they are doing.Do not let some of these comments from parents lead you to think that Wilson is a bad school because they do not know,they do not go there every day like I do.I truely recomend sending your children to Wilson.

As a student at Wilson I can honestly say that this the worst school i have ever attended! The principle is mean and does not treat the students and the parents of the students as well as he treats the athletic staff! I am in the band and we do not get any support at all from him yet the football gets all the money and support they need! I just want to advise you that this is NOT one of the schools you would want to send your kids to, this school is very wrong in their teachings!

Posted September 9, 2005

As a former student of Wilson High School, I can say, having attended several other high schools, that both the curriculum and the administration are lacking in the necessary relevance and competence needed to prepare a child for any future that doesn't include the phrase 'Would you like to make that the combo?' The lack of diversity and tolerance that this school teaches is disgusting. Attending Wilson High School was like jumping back 30 years. Sending a child to Wilson is condemning their future.

I graduated from Wilson in 1986, and now both of my children go there,one in jr. high and the other is a freshman in high school. I do feel that wilson was a much stronger school when Mr. Thompson was there. They were more disciplined and more respectful. I still think it is one of the better Lauderdale county schools, but it's not what it used to be.

Wilson High School is a great school. Students at Wilson are taught by highly qualified teachers who truly care about the student. Wilson High School allows every student to excel, they offer many advanced classes, that challenge students to think on a higher level and not just settle for the easiest answer. I would strongly suggest that you send your child to Wilson High School.

I have two kids attending Wilson High School and they love it. My kids are making friends for life with the other students. All the kids seem to look after one another. You don't see kids degrading one another or having an I'm better than you attitude. There are really no discipline problems at Wilson. All the kids seem to respect their teachers. The academics are good, their are advance classes for each subject. It will depend on if your child is willing to take the more difficult cources. High School needs to be a fun learning experience. I know my childern will look back on their school days with fond memories and joy. Wilson is a great school.

my boys have adhd and the teachers dont no to much about it and how to deal with them they need to go and learn more about it because the way they have done my kids this year is so bad.

I think this school is great, but our atheletics stink!!!!! Overall it's a good school.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted December 19, 2004

As a student here at Wilson, I feel I can say its awful, their way of dealing with decipline is sending the kids to a military drill sargent(ISS) which is In School Suspension- personally I'd rather be just suspended and get zeros for all of my work, I dont see how any school gets away having something like this- a grown man getting paid for screaming and yelling at kids for something as simple as not having paper or pencils for class, hope he likes his jobs- David Weiss.
