“The Mission of the Wilson County Schools, in partnership with the community, is to offer students a world-class education that will challenge minds, inspire hopes, and encourage learning.”
The Wilson County School System is the PLACE TO BE to learn, and prepare for college and /or career. We truly are “Meeting Tomorrow’s Needs Today.”
Our school system consists of twenty-two schools serving students in pre-kindergarten through adult education. Twelve elementary schools, two middle schools, four high schools, one career technical center, one adult high school, one alternative school and an adult basic education program make up the twenty-two sites. Three of the four high schools are newly constructed, modern, “state-of-the-art” facilities. All four high schools offer a strong rigorous curriculum, numerous athletic programs and extracurricular opportunities for all students.
During the 2010-2011 school year, the four high schools graduated 1,215 students and a large number of these graduates earned scholarships totaling over $22,141,751. Fifty-five students earned their high school diploma through The Adult High School and one hundred and sixty-nine students received their GED while attending the Adult Learning Center.
