This school is absolutely terrible. While walking through school I am enveloped in the smell of burning tar, from the construction that has been happening for what seem likes forever, or the smell of the rotten creek that runs through campus, and I unfortunately, have to cross everyday. If I were to even start to complain regarding the rudeness of the staff at this school, I would run out of characters. Also our "lovely" principal loves to constantly compare our test scores to our cross-town rival, Santa Clara High School. Sorry to break it to you but these are two very different schools, STOP COMPARING THEM. I am only giving one star, due to the face that that is the lowest score I can give. The only thing I "like" about this school, is that I only have to deal with it for a few more months.Read Full Review

Wilcox is a very good school. I graduated from there, my sisters did too and my three daughters and nephews as well. Academically is excellent and they have a very strong sports program. The Chargers football team has dominated Santa Clara 29 years in a row, might 30. The softball and baseball teams are also CCS bound year after year. Basketball, soccer, wrestling, you name it. I've been coaching the girls varsity soccer team for the last 6 years and also coached JV for one year. This year will be my 8th year coaching at Wilcox. I am proud to be a Wilcox alumni and proud to be a part of a great school. Read Full Review

From the perspective of a student, I think there are a lot of things that I appreciate about Wilcox (our wonderful Theatre, and our facilities that are undergoing a retrofitting), and the programs that are offered are extraordinary, although some are at about the same level that Santa Clara offers. However, a few programs like the Drama program which I m in is unbeatable. There are a few teachers that are so-so and less, but a lot of the teachers and staff I ve met so far are extraordinary, and are excellent role models for students, and even some of the teachers with less seniority.Read Full Review

I graduated from Wilcox and I have to say that there may be a lot of negativity that has circulated over the past couple decades, however this school is guaranteed to expand your childs mind, boundaries, and overall life experience. I would send my children to Wilcox! GO CHARGERS!Read Full Review

My daughter's transition from a Catholic high school to Wilcox has been an incredibly positive experience for her. Her grades are very good and her attitude is great. She loves her teachers especially her two algebra teachers that co-teach the class. She hasn't had any problems with her peers and is very focused on challenging herself academically. She wishes now that she had gone to Wilcox from the beginning of her transition to high school.Read Full Review

Wilcox is an excellent school. There are great teachers and plenty of activities for the students. Like any school, you won't find out how good it is unless you take the time to get involved. A student can get a top notch education, but they have to want it. My kids were able to go on to do very well in college and thought their senior year at Wilcox was more difficult than their first year of college because they took the top level of classes at Wilcox. This was their choice alone. The amount of parent involvement is not as high as could be, but that is a large part of the social economics of the families.Read Full Review

Wilcox is a wonderful school. Most of the teachers there are great and a lot of the learning done by the students is fun due to the teachers' methods of teaching. The extracurricular activities, like sports, excels in Santa Clara and the parent involvement is quite good. I would recommend Wilcox High School to anyone looking to have the best high school years of their lives.Read Full Review

Both my kids studied at Wilcox. In academics, Wilcox is above average but not excellent. The physical sciences (Chemistry & Physics) are poorly taught (except biology and AP chem which are good). Math is very good. English is also good and foreign languages (Spanish & Japanese) are good. One good thing about Wilcox is that they encourage good students to take as many AP classes as they want (unlike Cupertino schools). Sports programs are really good. My kids really enjoyed them. No comments on parental involvement (I am one of the uninvolved parents). I think Wilcox should focus on improving their sciences (Chem & Physics).Read Full Review

Wilcox is not a very good school. Most of the teachers there act like they have no like for the career they chose. There are a few noteable exceptions to this but most of the teachers I feel should not be teachers. The students there are very stuck up (mostly rich, preppy kids) If you have any reguard for your child what-so-ever, please do them a favor and steer them away from WilcoxRead Full Review

A very good school. Don't be drawn into the hoopla of the Fremont Union's High Schools with high test scores and such. A kid can go be successful anywhere. This school is a fun school. Teachers are excellent! Sports are great! There is a diversity of students. No majorities everyone is special. Academically it is pretty good.Read Full Review
