School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2017—18)
Pasadena is located just 15 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. The city’s popular shops and restaurants blend comfortably with tree-lined streets, distinctive neighborhoods, historic buildings and a vibrant cultural scene. Pasadena is most famous for the annual Tournament of Roses Parade and Rose Bowl Game.
Wilson serves students from Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre in grades six through eight. Wilson has a traditional Middle School configuration where students receive daily instruction in English/Language Arts and Mathematics.
Every other day, students are taught Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, and participate in an elective class. Elective classes include Computers, Robotics, Math intervention, English Intervention, Office Practice, Teacher Assistant, ELD, Drama, Orchestra, Advanced Orchestra, Strings, English Peer Tutoring intervention program using Blast Junior, a strength finder program for teens, Spanish, and Music. As part of the Pasadena Unified School District’s Excellent Middle Schools Initiative, Wilson students receive 90- minute blocks of instruction in four periods per day, Tuesday through Friday. On Mondays, students are dismissed early, affording 50-minute instructional blocks. In addition, all students participate in an Advisory period on Monday. Using a set curriculum, students learn how to set goals, connect with the school community, and plan their future careers and higher education during the advisory period.
Wilson provided teachers with information on implementing Common Core standards which included design-based learning where students were actively involved in the instructional program. These activities incorporate 21st century skills: creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
