Board of Education Meeting - Dec. 9

The Wilson County Board of Education will meet for its regular meeting on Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Central Office Boardroom (113 NE Tarboro St.).

Celebrating Our Results

WCS now ranks 58th in the state for overall proficiency out of 115 school districts - up one ranking from last year! In 2015-16, our rank was 90th and in 2016-17 our rank increased slightly to 89th. For the last three school years, we've had the highest increase in proficiency OF ANY DISTRICT IN THE STATE!!!!

Hurricane Dorian Heroes

We are SO GRATEFUL to Wilson County Emergency Management, law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics, city and county crews, NCDOT, the Red Cross, our WCS Maintenance Department, news outlets and countless others who serve us selflessly during emergencies and inclement weather! Shout Out! to Superintendent Dr. Mills who always errs on the side of caution and seeks advisement from weather experts to keep us safe during inclement weather. He is responsible for the safety and the education of more than 11,000 students and 2,000 staff members - so he does not take the decision to close schools lightly.
