Every Student Matters, Every Student Counts
WCS now ranks 58th in the state for overall proficiency out of 115 school districts - up one ranking from last year! In 2015-16, our rank was 90th and in 2016-17 our rank increased slightly to 89th. For the last three school years, we've had the highest increase in proficiency OF ANY DISTRICT IN THE STATE!!!!
We are SO GRATEFUL to Wilson County Emergency Management, law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics, city and county crews, NCDOT, the Red Cross, our WCS Maintenance Department, news outlets and countless others who serve us selflessly during emergencies and inclement weather! Shout Out! to Superintendent Dr. Mills who always errs on the side of caution and seeks advisement from weather experts to keep us safe during inclement weather. He is responsible for the safety and the education of more than 11,000 students and 2,000 staff members - so he does not take the decision to close schools lightly.
THANK YOU to every individual, business or entity who made a financial or in-kind donation to WCS Operation Backpack! Your generous contribution enabled us to provide more than 3,000 backpacks to students in need.
Great coverage in The Wilson Times about our commitment to offering more STEM and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, math and arts) options for our students so that they are better prepared for our STEM-centered world.
