Message from the Principal

Hello Wildcats!

 

I am excited to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! If you are new to Wilson High School, welcome to the Wildcat Family. You are joining a community that is proud to celebrate a rich history of amazing accomplishments. At Glen A. Wilson High School, we are committed to a shared vision of academic excellence, social responsibility, creative expression, and athletic development. Our mission is to prepare our students for college and career by empowering them to achieve their potential through engagement in rigorous and relevant learning experiences and the formation of vital relationships. With a wide array of courses, programs, and activities, Wildcat students are exposed to a plethora of opportunities that challenge them to rise to their potential and achieve their dreams. With the support of our caring and committed “staffulty”, our students’ achievements have established Wilson as one of the top public high schools in California, with graduates being accepted to some of the most prestigious Universities in the country - Harvard, Berkeley, M.I.T., and Cal Tech, to name a few.

 

The numerous awards and recognitions bestowed upon Glen A. Wilson High School is a reflection of our commitment to academic excellence for all students:

 

  • 2016 California Honor Roll
  • 2015 California Gold Ribbon School
  • 2016 Campaign for Business and Education Excellence
  • 2013 California Distinguished School
  • 2016 US News & World Report Best High School

 

 

Glen A. Wilson High School is both an International Baccalaureate (IB) School and an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) School. Both programs are nationally recognized for providing structured academic support that emphasizes the critical thinking and inquiry required for graduates to transition smoothly to college. Wilson proudly offers a multitude of Advanced Placement and IB courses. New to our course catalog in 2017-18 is AP Human Geography, IBSL Spanish, IBSL/IBHL Math, and IB Theater. We also offer comprehensive 4-year pathways of study in Visual and Performing Arts, as well as Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Conservatory of Arts, or CoArts, provides a progressive course of study in each of the following disciplines: Dance, Fine Art, Graphic Art, Instrumental Music, Photography, Theater Arts, and Vocal Music.  Wilson Institute of Technology and Sciences (WITS) offers programs of study in Biomedical Science, Computer Science, and Engineering. Co-curricular activities include Robotics, Science Olympiad, and Code Team. All three teams had outstanding competitive seasons in 2016-17 with Robotics qualifying for Super Regionals for the second year in a row, Science Olympiad advancing to State, and Code Team being crowned State Champions of the Chevron Design Challenge.

Along with our exceptional academic programs, the Wildcat Family is proud to provide opportunities for our students to connect to the greater school community. Organizations such as ASB, class government, and service organizations such as KIWINS, Rotary, and the American Red Cross, to name a few, provide opportunities for our students to serve their peers as well as the Hacienda Heights community. Besides our 30+ clubs and organizations, Wilson also offers 21 CIF-sanctioned sports. We are excited to celebrate the accomplishments of our athletics teams upon our return to school. To name a few - Softball CIF Semi Finalists, Boys’ Soccer CIF Quarter Finalists, Baseball CIF Quarter Finalists, and Girls’ Tennis Valle Vista League Champions, and many more. Go Cats!! There is definitely something for everyone at Wilson High School. EVERY student is encouraged to GET INVOLVED and be a contributing member of the Wildcat Community. 

As partners in your child’s future, I encourage Wildcat Parents to GET INVOLVED and STAY INFORMED. Every student and every parent is able to establish their own AERIES account to monitor attendance and grades. If you don’t currently have an active account, please contact your student’s counselor. The last Friday of each month, I will be sending the “Wilson News” bulletin to all those with email addresses in the Aeries system. The school’s website is also an excellent way to stay informed, as well as access your student’s teachers via e-mail. There are opportunities to participate in the Glen A. Wilson Foundation, booster clubs, and school site council. If participation in these organizations is not possible, please join us for athletic, performing arts, and school events such as monthly Coffee with the Principals, Back to School Night, and Open House.

 

I look forward to an AWESOME school year, and continuing the partnerships that further the great legacy of Glen A. Wilson High School.  

 

Danielle Kenfield, Ed.D.
