    "The truth is this school is by far the best high school in Oakland if not the Bay Area. All students get accepted into 4-year colleges and universities. They have had 4 Bill & Melinda gates Millinneum Scholars, Ivy League acceptances, scholarships and grants totaling in the millions and the student population is comprised of brilliant black and brown people. Everyone seems to hate on the real deal though. Teachers care, the instruction is challenging and the students are safe. What else can you ask for in this educationally troubled State?"

    "This will be my last year at Lionel Wilson and so far it has been the amazing 6 years so far! I'll miss it tremendously!!!!! Being a current student at Lionel Wilson has truly prepared me for the real world that lies ahead of me. I'm truly grateful that i was able to attend a positive school that has students that want to actually 'achieve' something in life."

    "This school is not that great (anymore), the school system does not seem to be working. When this school had just open we had great teachers, now there's about 5 good teachers. There are teachers who seem to not know what they are teaching and students show that they are not understanding what they are learning. The school needs a lot of changes if it wants to stay open, and not lose anymore money than it already has. Also needs to be a place where people feel safe and comftrable."

    "Wilson prep has many qualities and disadvantages.. as a former student there i am frightened to return. Even with a small population of students teachers and staff can not control them. They seem to hate the students there. they even give too much homewok and they think that everyone has the whole day to spend with the same homework matter, but they need to have all children decide on whats to be happening, even the leadership. they should have a full willing representative from the children and say what are the things needed to be fix for the safty and willingness of them to go to schoo. they dont think of the children at all.."
