Our Mission statement

The goal of the Wilcox High School English Department is to enable all students to cultivate, develop, and master the literacy and analytical tools they need to succeed now and beyond high school, in an ever changing world. We are committed to focusing on high expectations, individual academic success, critical thinking, and creating a community of respect, reading and responsibility.
