California Standards Test (CST)

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    Bullying is a big issue at Wilson. The school parades about being a non-bullying school but in reality the staff and teachers rather turn a blind eyes to the real issues at the school. Sadly I pulled my child out to attend a charter school. Best decision i have ever made!!!!!

    The best principal in the system left and the result has been deplorable in terms of overall discipline and teacher accountability. ik hope it turns around soon.

    The new direction in administration the last two years has been a breath of fresh air. Staff is also getting more involved thanks to enthusiastic new teachers.

    I am a current student at Wilson Middle School. The principal is in my opinion one of the best I've ever had. She does what she can to help us and for that I respect her authority. The teachers are excellent both in academic standards and as a human being. The sports and other activities are well-planned and funded and I assure all of you that our school is entirely safe to attend. Parents do not involve themselves in school activities for the simple fact that most students would rather not take the 'embarassment' of having their parents there - it is not by their own choice. My school the school that I am entirely proud of is an excellent one regardless of others' beliefs.

    Wilson Middle School is improving both academically and culturally. Students are held to high standards and the administration is consistently working towards school improvement. There is a good mix of veteran teachers and enthusiastic novice teachers all of whom are striving to make Wilson an excellent community school. Unfortunately parent involvement like many middle schools drops off as parents (wrongly I believe) think their students no longer want to see them volunteering at their school.

    Not that great of a school. I think the teachers are decent but the overall attitude towards the students is poor. A lot of money talks politics involved in the sports teams. As well as being a member of the 'right ' church.

    The quality of academic programs is satisfactory but can be way better. There are only but a few electives for the students to choose from. There is not much parent involvment.

    I have a child at Wilson Middle School and the level of committment to excellence that the principal exhibits is unequaled. The teachers seem highly dedicated to teaching core subjects for the advancement and empowerment of each student in the school. The staff in each department is excellent.
