If we had our choice, we would pick another school. They say a first impression is a lasting impression....well the first impression we received from this school was the registration lady telling us they were closing in 10 minutes and then giving us total attitude that we interrupted her cell phone call ...  Read more

The school is what you make of it. My children graduated from Wilson. My son did not work to the best of his ability and had to repeat 12th grade English. Ironically, that English teacher remains one of his most favorites and second time around, he committed to learn. My daughter are over achievers. ...  Read more

This school is horrible. Academically it one of the worst in the state, not an opinion but a fact. The drop-out rate is also the worst at over 50%. The teachers just do not simply care and the 12th grade govt. class is just as easy as the one in the fourth grade. The only classes that are any challenging ...  Read more

I am a former student of WWHS. I attended from 2007-2008. I was deeply involved in the ROTC program, and loved every bit of it. This school is not as bad as people make it out to be.

The ROTC at this school is the best ever. And the teachers care for the students.

I have read these reviews and this forum has reinforced my opinion that only those with a grudge or ulterior motive posts. There have been no 'race riots' at WWHS. Not one. Students are not expelled for using curse words at teachers, although I personally think that would be a good idea. However, two ...  Read more

I attended Wilson from 2001-2004. I graduated in 2004 in the top 10 of my class. My opinion on the school is this...Academically speaking...there are great opportunities with teachers who are willing to treat your student like an individual with high goals. There are also a ton of art classes as well ...  Read more

As a current student at Woodrow Wilson High School I think that this school does need alot of work but it has came a long way from what it has been. Just come and sit into a class like an AP class and see that the whole school is not as bad as it seems and that we actually do learn stuff.
