Woodrow Wilson History

            Woodrow Wilson was established in 1926 as a part of the Terre Haute city schools Under consolidation, it became a part of the Vigo County School Corporation. A handsomely renovated three story building, it sits on one of the most tree adorned campuses in the area and boasts undeniably the most beautiful auditorium in the Wabash Valley.

From 1926 to present day, Wilson has become one of the finest junior/middle schools in the state of Indiana. Students, staff, faculty, and patrons have set high standards for the curriculum and Wilson graduates excel in many disciplines. Academic and related arts students compete regularly on district, state, regional, and national levels. Math, science, social studies, English, art, and music students have brought great distinction to the school. The chess team won the USCF National Championship several times and the Wilson Jazz Ensemble and Combo regularly wins regional competitions and has achieved wide recognition. Choir, band, and orchestra musicians perform, compete, and win on a state level as well. The athletic program regularly produces county champions in tennis, cross-country, volleyball, basketball, and track.
          When we designate ourselves “Number One” it is because we endeavor to do our very best whatever the venue might be. The faculty and staff constantly work on fine tuning the curriculum, programs, and extra-curricular activities to provide our students with the best opportunities possible for maximum learning. Relevant field trips are scheduled to enrich the daily classroom and laboratory experiences. The overall atmosphere within Wilson Middle School is one that reflects the strong team efforts on behalf of the students, the community, state, and nation.
