Best school in the district for education and safe. The sports programs aren't strong, but most are stronger than the other schools within the district. My daughter transferred from Los Altos and was taking honor's over at LA, had to drop out over at Wilson, to far behind the class. They don't put up with violance, they will kick you down to Los Altos if that is the direction you want to go.

My son's freshman year I was less than happy with the administration & direction I saw the school heading. At the end of the year it was announced that Wilson would be getting a new principal, so rather than move my son, as planned, I decided to take a wait & see approach, hoping things would get better. And things did get better in spades! The first year, small changes began to happen, which made me hopeful. The second year, the major changes came into play, all I can say is "wow". Mrs. Paul will listen to your comments/concerns and let you know what can be done, if something can't be done, why and makes parents feel like they are an important part of the equation. She is doing a great job in spite of the garbage she is getting from some district people.

I'm an alumna of Wilson and currently attend USC. I don't feel the reviews on here reflect Wilson accurately. Bottom line: any student who has a decently good attitude comes out of this school a leader at their university. A lot of directors of college campus orgs, local business start-ups, and students who go on to graduate school come out of Wilson. Not only at my university, but at others such as Pomona College and Stanford where our alumni go and graduate to do greater things. Sports is not our forte, but cultivating leaders and curious minds is. There is a reason why we are the district's flagship school, and undermining the quality of Wilson's teachers, activities, and diversity looks over so much of the great qualities that produce great students and alumni.

I graduated from Wilson last year and currently attend a university. In high school, I took a heavy load of mostly honors and AP classes. Looking back, I can safely say that Wilson did not really prepare me for college academics. The academics are sub-par at best and all the good, veteran teachers are now retiring. Some of the AP classes at Wilson don't prepare you for the AP exam. However, the sports teams are decent and there are many options for extracurricular activities.

This school is great if your kid is in honors, IB , and Ap Classes. But if he's a regular student, move him out. He will achieve so much more at another school. And if he/she is in sports, forget about getting a scholarship at Wilson. Sadly this school caters to the Asian community. How many football students are Asian.?? 1 here. So if your kid is good at sports...Dont come to Wilson.. Look it up.. you will be disgusted.

This is one of the most overrated schools in America. It is regarded as the best in our district, but in fact it is one of the worst. 95% of students are too focused in school work, pushing away social life, making them, though intelligent, social rejects when they arrive at college. The school is always covered in trash, and the teachers there are good but incredibly strict and mean. The

My son attends and the classes geard for non-academics are hard to fit in with all the state required classes. High school shoul dbe a time of exploration for a student - not a stumbling block until college. My son is a straight A student, but it has taken some fancy manuevering and summer school to get all his A-F requirements for college as well as 4 years of Drama (his passion) into his schedule. Other interensts (like choir) have to be extra curricular sicne there is just no more room in his 4 year plan. Parent involvment is not solicited (no PTA-PTO), but as an active parent you can find ways to help and support that your kid will appreciate in the long run. In all, I am impressed by the Wilson teaching staff and Mr. Clegg will be sorely missed as principal.

If the student is motivated and hang out with the right group, they will do fine here. Wilson offers many AP, IB, and honor classes for those students who wanted to challenge themselves.

This year was my daughters freshman year. Although it was hard to adjust to high school all of the teachers have really made it any easy transition.

This school lacks many classes that other districts and schools has to offer. It does not have lockers, making students carry heavy books around during the day. It doesn't offer any advanced computer classes, which I think today is very important. It does not have a class called SRC (state required course) which is sex education and driver's rules. I transferred out after my first year at this school. Teacher wise, this school's teacher is excellent.

IB program is helpful toward students achieve goal of higher level classes such as college-credit classes. Not many elective classes as the other school, Los Altos. Music and Dance is the only emphasis but not as much. No funding for extracurricular activities. Parent involvement is poor. The 'beautification' is not so good either.

Wilson has been the flagship high school of the district for years. It has recently experienced a mass exodus of good young teachers leaving for many reasons (superintendant, principal, pay, etc) but many veteran teachers remain. A new principal from Monrovia seems to have energized the school and, while only time will tell if the school will change for the better or worse, parents are keeping a close eye on the changes, holding the district accountable, and are hopeful.

I attended here and know of others who now attend this fine High School. I can't wait till I can send my children to this school. The teachers are awesome and made learning not a chore but rather a great and fun environment. I am extremely pleased all around.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
