WCS has zero tolerance for weapons on our school campuses. This past week, we had three incidents involving guns at two of our schools. “Our school district is comprised of 11,141 students and roughly 1,500 employees. On any given day, that’s thousands of people who are doing what needs to be done and staying focused on education,” said Superintendent Dr. Lane Mills. “Unfortunately, it only takes the poor decisions of a few to disrupt our learning environments, and nothing is as disruptive or disturbing as threats to our safety. That is why we have absolutely zero tolerance when it comes to instances that threaten the safety of our Wilson County Schools Family.

Participating in athletics is an important part of the overall school experience for many students in Wilson County Schools. Beginning at the middle-school level and culminating with the final game of their senior year, our students have an opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports. Our student-athletes create lifelong memories and learn valuable lessons that prepare them for the challenges and successes that will come their way in life.
