Enrolling qualified students in advanced coursesadvanced-programs1.jpg

Wilson High School sees the potential in every student and believes all students can be successful. That’s why our school is automatically enrolling qualified students into advanced programs or courses during the school year.
To help reach the Tacoma School District’s academic excellence strategic goal in which all students will perform at or above grade level, and to comply with a state senate bill, the school board adopted the Academic Acceleration and Rigor Policy in June 2013.
