  • School Performance Profile
    On November 6, 2014, the Pennsylvania Department of Education released to the public a new and updated School Performance Profile.  This profile provides the public with a comprehensive overview of student academic performance in every Pennsylvania public school building, including traditional public schools, charter schools, cyber charter schools and career and technology centers.

    Designed to serve three purposes, the School Performance Profile will be used for federal accountability for Title I schools under the state's approved federal No Child Left Behind waiver, the new teacher and principal evaluation system that was signed into law in 2012 and to provide the public with information on how public schools across Pennsylvania are academically performing. 

    As a high school, we performed very well and continue to be proud of our academic achievement results. Overall, WIlson High School is one the highest performing schools in the Commonwealth with a comprehensive score of 94.2 out of a possible 100. These results are a testament of the hard work of our students and staff who perform at their very best.  We invite you to learn more about the School Performance Profile and our performance on the profile by using the links below.

  • Is Your Family Planning a Trip in 2014 - 2015?
    Families with children who will be in grades 9 - 11 during the 2014 - 2015 school year should avoid planning family trips due to Keystone Exams (Algebra I, Biology, and Literature) on the following testing windows:
    • January 7 - 21, 2015
    • May 13 - 27, 2015
    Students that are enrolled in Algebra I, Biology (all 11th graders), CP/Honors English 10 (all 10th graders), and any students that have not previously passed any of the aforementioned Keystone Exams are required to be in school during the testing windows. Please schedule family outings around these dates so that all students will be able to participate in these required state assessments. Students are not permitted excused absences during these testing windows. The Wilson School District appreciates past efforts of families to support their children at home to ensure they are in attendance on testing dates. This has resulted in Wilson High School continually being successful on state assessments as required by the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) federal law. Please complete the following form for all trip requests: Non-School Sponsored Trip Form
