Guidance / Counseling
The Guidance and Counseling Staff at Wilson High School provides developmental, as well as pro-active, preventative and remedial services for students. This involves a cooperative effort among students, staff members, parents and the community. Their purpose is to empower all learners to lead satisfying and productive lives by assisting them in identifying and achieving educational, career, personal and social goals. We are here to help by working with academic issues, educational and career planning, as well as personal concerns. All students meet several times each year with their counselor in groups of approximately 30 for group guidance activities. Most students will also have individual meetings with counselors.
The Role of the School Counselor
School counselors are actively committed to helping students explore their abilities, strengths, interests and talents as these traits relate to career awareness and development.
School counselors help parents focus on ways to further the education, personal and social growth of students.
School counselors work with teachers and other educators to help students explore their potential and set realistic goals for themselves.
School counselors seek to identify and utilize community resources that can enhance and compliment comprehensive school counseling programs and help students become productive members of society.
Comprehensive school counseling programs are considered an integral part of the educational process that enables all students to achieve success in school.
Do we make a difference? Absolutely!

experiencing the past
English Language Arts encourages students to find their “voices” as they collaborate with world literature and complex texts. The study of English further develops their communication skills and cultural expression. Students reflect rigorous critical-thinking at all levels of literacy from English Learners to students with special needs and to IB “Diploma Programme” participants.
Our mission is to provide a quality arts and educational experience that is creative and challenging to all students who have an interest or passion for the arts. The integration of an education which supports the A-G requirements for college admission and a visual and performing arts theme will provide opportunities to increase student engagement and participation, promote the arts as an essential part of life by making connections to student life experiences and global issues, to promote visual and artistic literacy and create a lifelong passion for the arts.
What Distinguishes the Social Studies Department?
With the Social Studies department, students were thrown into time with learning about the past, and having a deep understanding of how it effects the future. Many students endure their Government class, while others could sit there for hours listening to their teachers lecture about the Great Depression. Although for many students, learning about the past can be difficult, the Social Studies department ensures that the students appreciated the hard work of the ancestors of the past. To do so, we provide:
*Fall & Spring Drama Performances
*Drama and Music Productions
*Showcase student work in galleries
*Painting, ceramics, drama courses
*Active alumni support
*Winter & Spring Concerts
*Winter & Spring Talent Shows
*End of Year Senior Awards Luncheon
