Jr. Carlos Dunn returns and looks to finish off where he left off by having a break out game against Gonzaga in the State Semifinals. 5’8 So. Chase Cook looks to return off a great season and add much needed depth at the PG positon by leading the team being able to score from several different dimensions. With the additions of 6’8 Sr. Willem Bouma to protect the paint amongst doing many other intangibles. Another addition 6’4 Jr. PG Jay Heath Jr. who brings experience to a group that lost 3 seniors and will look to lead the area in scoring. 6’6 Soph.

The School

Named for Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson High School in Washington, D.C. is the largest of the 18 District of Columbia (D.C.) 18 high schools. Wilson High School was built for $1.25 million on a patch of land acquired in 1930, known by the neighboring Tenleytowners as “French’s Woods.” The main school building, built in 1935 and extensively renovated in 2010–2011, is in the National Register of Historic Places. The eight acre, seven building campus was recently modernized and has been awarded LEED certification and Green Ribbon School status.

Wilson opened its doors to students on Monday, September 23, 1935, becoming the sixth D.C. high school. The school started with 640 sophomores and juniors. Many students transferred to Wilson from Central and Western High Schools. Located in the Tenleytown neighborhood at the intersection of Chesapeake Street and Nebraska Avenue, N.W., the school now serves students in grades 9 through 12 who live in Ward 3, although nearly 30 percent of the student body lives outside the school’s boundaries. The school is home to a diverse student population defined by tolerance, acceptance, and academic rigor.  More than 90 percent of Wilson graduates attend college and members of last year’s class were accepted by over 200 colleges, universities, and junior colleges across 41 states and the District of Columbia. These graduates were offered over $28 million in scholarships.

The student body makeup is 54 percent male and 46 percent female, and the total minority enrollment is 75 percent. Over 850 Wilson scholars are in one of the seven rigorous college and career-readiness academies. Wilson currently offers college-level courses in 30 Advanced Placement (AP) subjects, as well as engineering and biomedicine. The AP participation rate at Wilson High School is 82 percent. In athletics, Wilson fields 20 teams playing in the District of Columbia Interscholastic Athletic Association (DCIAA) and another 20 club teams.

Wilson strives to build a safe, supportive, and welcoming community of dedicated and self-reflective learners, equipped to embrace opportunities for growth on the path of active citizenship. Wilson High School’s mission statement is “We make decisions based on student learning.” The Woodrow Wilson High School President/Principal is Ms. Kimberly Martin.
