Advanced Studies Program
Students must test into the program and provide data of academic progress.
The Advanced Studies Program at Wilson Middle School provides middle school students with a unique and personalized learning experience, essential for adolescent emotional and academic growth. The program offers a rigorous curriculum in all content areas, and will deepen students' knowledge of academic subjects allowing them to exceed state achievement standards.
There are approximately 65 slots available to incoming 6th grade students provided the admission criteria are met. Completed applications (available in the main office). All subjects are taught with an emphasis on the four C's: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Communication.
The Advanced Studies Cohort Model provides small teacher teams and highly qualified teachers that are trained for gifted education.
Goal of the program is to lay the foundation for students to engage in higher level courses, including Advanced Placement, in high school.
