  • Wilkes Central High School is the best school in Wilkes County. All the other schools are alright but they cannot compare to how great Wilkes Central is. Wilkes Central has the best athletes and the smartest stundents in Wilkes County.

  • There is an unpredictable teacher. he tells the students one thing and does another. my daughter came to talk to him about make-up time and he said ''it's not his problem'' cause she didn't get it done in time. and yelling and rolling his eyes at my daughter. hello i thought that this was a good school, the teachers are wonderful. they've helped my daughter every way possible. thank you teachers.
