Waterbury Schools are changing, and are fighting for change. Especially this school in particular. You can see the effort the staff is doing to make their students succeed. I appreciate that in almost every way. And because of that, Wilby is becoming a greater institution of learning more than ever. ...  Read more

I am a student at Wilby. I'm in the ATOMS program and a lot of my classmates think that the ATOMS students are better then the other in the school. I don't believe this. The ATOMS program is for students who have higher goals in life. A lot of my classmates want to be neurosurgeons or some other high ...  Read more

This comment is to the student who said that the only good students are atoms students. That is entirely untrue. I and some of my friends do our work & get what we need to get done. Therefore that is an understatement. Your just profilling the students because they are in a higher clas..which isn't right.

I am a student at wilby and I definetly agree with many of the points people have been making. I feel the school is the way it is because of everybody.

I haven't been to this school for very long, and although I'm not quite used to it yet, I still like it much better than my old school for ONE reason: how the students here don't stress over prom, graduation and college as much as in other schools. And also, the school is smaller so it's less intimidating. ...  Read more

I am a current student at wilby and i have to say that even though it is not one of the greatest schools in waterbury, it is not the worst either. There are still some good teachers out there that actually care about their students. Yes, some teachers just basically sit back and chill while their students ...  Read more

I am a 1986 graduate of Wilby High School. And a parent of a 2006 graduate. I believe the teachers and principle (most of them) do their best with these kids. It is hard without parent involvement. I have been to many open houses, and where are all the parents? For the comment left by the drop out, you ...  Read more
