Woodrow Wilson SHS Back in Business

Woodrow Wilson SHS Back in Business

Woodrow Wilson Senior High School reopened its doors to the public yesterday, August 18, after a two year $124 million modernization project. The ribbon was cut at 11:30am and people were finally allowed to take a look at the new world of Wilson. As a graduate from the class of 2004, I was in utter shock. It's hard to believe that when I was in high school, the walls of the swimming pool at Wilson collapsed and were not fixed until years later when the renovation of the Wilson Aquatic center began shortly before modernization for the rest of the building. At the old Wilson, the gym made peoples skin look yellow because of terrible florescent lighting. In most classrooms, the paint was peeling off the walls. In my English class, students had peeled the paint into a shape resembling Africa. It was normal for a desk to be covered in graffiti or be broken. I don't even want to talk about the bathrooms. Now, all of this has changed.
