    I choose Wilson Southern Junior High than any other school in the USA. The students and teachers are very friendly and I have no problem with that what so ever. I'd tried other schools throughout the U.S. and Canada but some don't agree with me.

    It's a great school! I use to go to wilson only 1 year but it was the best year of my school life. It's a school with a lot of wonderful teachers and a good curriculum. I definitely recommend going to this school.
