Wilson in an International Baccalaureate World School

  • IB at Wilson   

    The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program is a challenging curriculum that leads to a diploma recognized worldwide. Students engage in a rigorous course of study, learn to relate classroom experiences to the larger world, gain an international perspective, and develop responsible citizenship.
     
    The IB curriculum encourages critical analysis, research skills, and service as part of the learning process. Student performance is measured by assessments administered by both local teachers and international examiners. Graduates of the program are considered for enrollment at the world’s top universities and are eligible for up to a full-year’s worth of college credit.  Learn More >

  • Health Exam & Student Athlete information Fall Sports Update

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact that it is having on our health care providers, The Department has released a memo to provide direction to  schools when students are delayed in obtaining required health exams, along with information on the required health exam form. (attachments)  

    • Continue to accept any physical examination form conducted on or before January 30, 2021 and allow parents/guardians additional time to provide the completed exam form to the school;
    • Student athletes can participate in the fall 2020 sports season without a current health exam if they meet certain criteria; and
    • For the past two school years, the Department has encouraged schools to accept a health exam form regardless of the form it was completed on.  Beginning January 31, 2021- physical examinations for school are to be documented on the NYS Required Health Examination Form (attached) or an electronic health record equivalent form (directions for such attached).

    Dear Wilson Family,

    In light of the recent events nationwide and right here in our own city, I would like you to know that the safety of our Wilson scholars and their families is of utmost importance to us. News broadcasts as well as social media has captured the despair felt across our nation over the tragic loss of George Floyd. Please know that through these harsh and uncertain times, we at Wilson stand together with you as one loving and supporting family.

    If you feel the need to speak with a caring adult, please reach out to your teachers, counselor, social worker, or administrator. Staff members will provide time today to listen to your story and/or concerns. There is also a district hotline available to speak with a counselor at 262-8700. For additional information with regard to social and emotional supports, please go to the district website at RCSDk12/together.

    Parents, we commend you on your tireless efforts in supporting your child's education during these difficult times.

    I can be reached directly at julie.vanderwater@rcsdk12.org
