I think that Wilson School is a great school and that it is very nice to have the quality of teachers that this fine school has especially the 8th grade Science Teacher. I think that the teachers really care and that they are striving very hard to get the children to learn. Keep up the good work.

Wilson is definitely not a very good school. There is so much drama, & so many mean people there that dont care about anyones feelings. (At one point my daughter had to go through people writing things about her dead mother in the school bathroom. The teachers are not at all challenging. And the teachers are terrible. They are either really mean or just sit there, give you worksheets, and dont teach you anything. I recommend sending your child to Franklin middle school instead of wilson. Thank god we moved because my daughter LOVES franklin and would choose to go there anyday. They challenge your child if they need it, & they help them if they need it. Its definitely in my opinion, the best middle school in iowa.
