We need to be objectively honest here, instead of biased and one-sided. There were good experiences/memories here, but unfortunately, there was (and is) also favoritism by most of the staff, particularly toward those who are involved in athletics, certain clubs, and/or if one was an honor roll student. Unless one was one of those, one was usually not taken seriously, and teachers had little to no time for them. There was (and probably still is) bullying that is all but ignored by the staff, especially if the troublemaker is an athlete.
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.
The teachers and pricipals really care about the well being of the kids, they are fantastic, and we embark on many educational endevours. I would higly recommend this school for any parent looking for their child a bright future.
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..
