    I have two sons that are currently attending Wilson school. Teachers are very dedicated to their profession. I have been a parent volunteer for five years. On March of 2009 we got a new principal Mr. Salazar. He has the utmost student's success in mind. The principal has blended in very well with the teachers and students. He is visible disiplinary with a cheerleader charatcter towards everyone. With his leadership we should get exemplary status.
