Principal's Message

I am honored and excited to begin serving your child and the Wilson community.  I look forward to meeting your child and those family members and friends who support them.  Your child is our priority and our goal is to give them an environment in which they feel safe. During this time of uncertainty and distance learning being a part of our school environment, we want you to know we are a resource to your child if they are struggling academically or emotionally.  Please don’t hesitate to contact the Wilson office if there is a need.  We have a very talented staff who is dedicated to teaching, challenging and nurturing your child. The Wilson staff wishes to foster your child’s well-being so they will reach their fullest potential.

“Our mission is to provide an educational environment which reinforces basic cultural values, ethical behavior, including respect for others, personal integrity, responsibility and accountability. We will work together to provide students with a safe environment in which they can discover their potential and strengthen their motivation for living and learning. As tomorrow’s leaders, students will be prepared to participate and function effectively in society.”  HESD Mission.

Our School Goals:

  • Our school community will ensure a safe, secure, and positive environment for all students and staff.
  • The school community will strive to develop students’ greatest potential academically, socially, emotionally and create a foundation for life-long learning.
  • Parent, Student, Teacher and Administration communication is valued and will be encouraged.
  • We will foster appreciation and respect among our community as we work together toward common goals.

Report Card Resources

Report cards are delivered to parents once each trimester during the school year.  For Trimester 1, report cards are provided to parents at parent/teacher conferences on November 19th and 20th. For the second and third trimesters, report cards are mailed home at the end of each trimester.

Woodrow Wilson Junior High publishes a resource document for parents that provides a clear explanation of the grades students receive and the proficiency levels that students are expected to achieve.
