i enjoyed going to wilson. The principal was great. I am not so fond on the grading system.I think POD is kind of dull. They should mix up the classes. The kids hate it. Overall I think Wilson is an Opreety good school school.

Overall, I give Wilson Middle School a B-. They have a confusing 6-day cycle, alternating 'pod' (academic courses) with 'AE' (academic enrichment).

The results for reading, writing and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles.
