Wilson High School 5

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 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!
