Wilson has very caring, supportive and encouraging teachers and coaches. We have nothing but great things to say about this school! The coaches are especially great about having academic and athletic balance and have encouraged my son tremendously. Mrs. Wilcox has been so welcoming and helpful- by far the best counselor that we have ever had! GO RAMS!
While this school had excellent teachers for elective classes (Spanish, Band, Art), I can't say the same for core classes. Many of my teachers were mean, rude, unprofessional, and inconsiderate. I am proud to say I graduated from PSHS with Honors distinction and in the top 16% of my class, but I am NOT proud to say I went to Wilson. If your student is introverted, or gets bullied whatsoever, this school is NOT for them, as counselor's are blind and unhelpful. Go to Haggard.
Wilson MS is an excellent school. My daughter was new from an out-of-state school this year and has adjusted quite well. The staff are all very friendly, kind and helpful. The only staff member that we had a little difficulty with was the band teacher, she seemed to be pretty tough on my daughter, but now later in the school year she has eased up on her and they have a mutual respect for one another. I highly reccommend Wilson.
OK I was a new student last year and I'm finally going to the 7th grade my sixth grade year was OK some teachers were good some were bad. My social studies teacher was the one I don't like shed give demerits for no reason. And for the students some were very rude to me calling me names I just wish I'd hit those kids. I'm not going to name those kids but if any new 6th graders going to read this don't tell anyone something u don't want anybody to know I'd like this one girl and when I told my best friend everybody knew including the girl I just wish people would be nice and don't tell anybody
This school it horrible when it comes to special needs kids! The worst teacher would be Angela Rexford, LA sped teacher, the principals conducts are way off base! They protect the wrong doing of teachers, and go out there way to sabotage a child's life literally! they are more reactive than proactive!
This is my last year of Wilson, so i know what I'm saying. I disagree with what most of the parents are saying. Yeah, there's bullying, but come on people-THIS IS LIFE! No matter where you go or how old you are there will always be bullying. You can't protect your children forever. All of my teachers are super nice and care about their students-unless they are as rude as... you can probably finish the sentence. And just because of that sentence don't you dare down grade me. And yeah, we get searched on the last day of school, but it's more for shaving cream and spray paint that 8th graders bring because it's the last day. It is a bit smaller than average, it is a bit dated-I guess, but it doesn't help when you look at the down side, and not look at the bright side-as my fellow student(8/6/13) stated. Wilson has great programs and staff, and -no offense- but it seems like a lot of you are publicizing online school instead of focusing on the topic-WILSON. All of my family went here, and that includes my disabled cousin, so get your facts straight. They're treated as equals. As for racism, we have a lot of diversity for a small school and we're pretty cool with it.Wilson isn't trash.
I'm a student here and I have to say all o the other Parents are wrong about wilson wilson is a great school so there is some bad kids there are kids. Like that in every school I'm goin into the 7th grade now and I'm perfectly fine there is one kid that has cancer and everyone treats him like a normal kid and this is a perfect school for kids that play instruments so parents out there stop looking on the down side and look on the bright side for once
The school has mostly good teachers, in social studies i feel that it is being paced way to fast. The only over all problem are the students them selves. It seems that people get away with anything, and are given a "light punishment" either they need to have worse punishments or get rid of the students who don't want to learn and just want to get in trouble. I would say public schools are horrible, do online or some other, you will be happy that you made the decision later on.
