A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to Wilmington High School (WHS) for the 2020–2021 school year. It is always exciting to begin a new school year giving each student a fresh start and the opportunity to build on past successes. It is a wonderful feeling knowing that we have been given the opportunity to once again hold school in our beautiful facilities. It will be a joy to resume in-person instruction with our students during these challenging times. We encourage all students to get off to a good start and get involved at WHS. We also want parents to be involved in their student’s education. It is the shared responsibility of parents, staff, and students to assure that students learn and grow throughout the educational process. In addition, WHS is committed to provide a safe and positive learning environment.

I would like to wish all of you the very best for a successful school year. I am proud to be your principal and a part of the great tradition of excellence at Wilmington High School. I encourage each of you to do your best, work hard, and bring a positive attitude to school every day so that you can reach your true potential.
