A legacy of excellence


For more than a century, Wilson Middle has established a legacy of excellence within South Tampa’s Hyde Park community. Consistently rated an "A” school, and nationally recognized as a "Blue Ribbon School of Excellence,” Wilson’s success is founded on rigorous curriculum standardsOur Scholar Quest high school credit courses give students a competitive edge in high school and college. Our endless Electives include Robotics, Band, Drama and Agriculture. Wilson students leave their own legacies in our community, through volunteer service and clubs. Students grow as leaders, becoming ambassadors on campus through our Student Success Program. Our Sixth Grade Structure creates a supportive transition into middle school, starting with our summer "Bulldog Bootcamp,” where new students explore our campus, meet our teachers and learn our traditions, such as our daily "bugle call.” With the help of our involved, supportive parents, we work together to ensure Wilson continues its legacy of excellence.
