    I am so fortunate to say that I work at Wilson Middle School. The staff is working hard to make this one of the best middle schools in the state! We constantly have other districts coming to visit our classrooms and see what new techniques we are implementing. This is a progressive building that is helping students to reach their full potential.

    Wilson is amazing! They have pep rallies every month encouraging posters lining the hallways and positive staff members always there to help!

    Woodrow Wilson is making a change! Students teachers parents and the community are working together to make sure the students are successful. TAG students are given great opportunities for enrichment and struggling learners are given opportunity for intervention. This building focuses on building relationships with students in order to help them achieve success. The school teaches the whole child and provides a wonderful atmosphere for learning.

    This school is so great! I have seen the great changes they have made over the years and they continue to get better!

    The TAG (Talented and Gifted) group is the best I've seen in years! They're attempting to have a sports complex built in Council Bluffs!

    There's a reason this school is rated as poor as it is and it is the teachers! I've never experienced teachers with an "I'm better than you" attitude. A teacher should always build up students to their fullest ability not bully them. If we are still in the area my children will be attending St Alberts.

    Too much emphasis on helping the less gifted students at the cost of not pushing my daughter who consistently did well in another state
