This school is amazing, not only have I attended but my son (who is now at PHs) but my daughter is in seventh grade there now. The staff is fantastic. And in seriousness this school has no drugs or teen smoking unlike some other schools in Pasadena so I'm not sure why it's credited as a bad school.
I have Daughter is in her 2nd year of college. My daughter did her 3 years at Wilson and we had a great experience from involved and communicative teachers, counselors, vice- principal, and staff. Even though Wilson is not our school in the area, we still chose for my 2nd child that is now attending. Our great experience also extended into the participation of Drum Corps, and we are very involved parents. I'm a firm believer that my children will do great wherever they go because of the type of people we've raised and the type of parents we are. It's all about the law of attraction. Wilson attracts great teachers and staff as well as very involved parents.
They violated my sons IEP and allowed him to be bullied by students and one teacher
