Wilson has a wonderful faculty this year. The students have a warm and caring environment that they will thrive in. The improvements made to the facility were needed and are wonderful. Parents who become involved in student activities will see that the staff is more than willing to go the exta mile in all areas of the students life. Overall this is a great school with great leaders.
