School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2020–2021)
Woodrow Wilson High School is a culturally diverse college preparatory high school in the heart of Long Beach, California. It offers a rigorous academic program for all students that is designed to meet and exceed the admission requirements of both the California State University system and the University of California system. Wilson is organized into five pathways: The School of the Arts, The School of Leadership and Public Service, The School of Medicine and Biotechnology, The School of Technology, and WAVE.
Wilson provides a challenging and supportive academic experience to prepare students for success in college and careers. Established in 1926, the home of the Bruins has consistently been recognized as one of the top high schools in the United States by Newsweek, the Washington Post, and US News and World Report. The academic offering at Wilson is diverse and rigorous with many accelerated and honors courses, many Advanced Placement courses --including the prestigious AP Capstone program as well as Project Lead the Way (PLTW). Colleges Wilson
graduates are attending include: UCLA, USC, UC Berkeley, Stanford, Georgetown, West Point, and University of Pennsylvania. Wilson students are fortunate to enjoy the LBUSD and Wilson connections to post-secondary institutions, industry sectors, and the community at large which all help to create a diverse experience.
In addition to strong academics, Wilson provides various co-curricular activities to enhance the high school experience for all students. The athletic program, for example, is an integral part of the school’s culture. Wilson’s athletic success is unmatched within LBUSD as well as the region. The Bruins have won 64 California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Championships and 413 Moore League titles; more than any other Long Beach high school. Wilson has also experienced athletic success on the international stage by having at least one Olympian in every Summer Olympiad since 1952; 38 Olympians in total.
Wilson also stands apart within the district as it is one of only two uniform high schools in all of LBUSD. All Wilson students must wear khaki, white, gold, and cardinal uniforms--creating a greater sense of community, as well as equity and safety throughout the campus. Students and parents sign an agreement before every school year, committing to the Wilson Code of Excellence.
After 91 years of academic excellence, the alumni and current students of Wilson can attest today (and every day) that, “It’s a Great Day to Be a Bruin!”
Wilson’s Mission Statement
Wilson will provide an exceptional comprehensive high school experience through Linked Learning Pathways so every Wilson Bruin will be a successful and productive citizen.
