Not disciplined. Let bullies get too far, then discipline the one who was bullied, since bully is teachers kid. Seems they took all the unwanted teachers from other schools and placed them here. Not a good transition school.

Teachers dont care about kids......sad the kids hear the teachers complain about pay etc. Too much favortism and teacher talk about kids! You see the staff and teachers running out to their cars before the bell goes off at the end of the day. Good leading by example!

This school really has a great program for preparing students for high school. The way they transition the 6th graders makes them feel safe and comfortable and helps build up their confidence. Lots of interesting elective classes available too.

I have subsituted for several schools in Augusta County the past 8 months and Wilson is by far the best organized, cleanest and has the best leadership. These traits filter down to the teachers and students, they are a pleasure to work with. As I retired Navy Commander I know good leadership when I see it.

I've been at wilson for 2 years now and I love it. My first year I had trouble adjusting to the new people but that quickly ended and nearly everyone had made new friends. The teachers will go out of their way to help you if you are struggling. If You have an overachieving student they even offer programs enrichment or advanced for your child if you so choose.

A nice, new facility with a good floorplan, especially with consideration to segregating each grade. Unfortunately, Augusta County did not build this school with much room to grow, and it opened last summer already at capacity.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
