  • Second Semester Begins Monday, January 30


    Good Evening Wilson family,

    I can’t believe the second semester is upon us, marking the halfway point of the school year.  With the start of the second semester comes new beginnings and opportunities.  Before we know it, June will be here. Now is the time to ensure every student is earning every credit, attending every day and every class. As a school, we continue to experience small wins on a daily basis but must continue our unwavering efforts to improve and be better. 

    On behalf of myself and the entire staff, we look forward to serving the Wilson community and working in partnership to achieve excellence.  Have a safe and blessed weekend.

    Gary M. Reynolds

    Acting Principal

    Joseph C. Wilson Magnet High School

  • The University of Rochester's Upward Bound Math/Science program at Wilson is currently recruiting. For over 10 years, our program has helped make college possible for hundreds of students who have attended this school.

    If you know any students who sound like a good fit, please take a minute to email Will Aiken ( ) from UR so he can connect with them or reach out to one of your students’ teachers so they can send a recommendation.

    We are looking for students who are...

    • Currently in 8th-11th grade
    • Interested in academic success (generally, with a GPA of 2.5+. There is some room for flexibility on this.)
    • Interested in attending college after high school
    • Eager to participate in programming, both during the school year and during the summer.

    What do we offer...

    • Access to our college prep center at school sites (or provided virtually when necessary)
    • Programming and events catered to expand students' college and career awareness
    • Academic support (tutoring, check-ins, etc.)
    • When possible, trips to college campuses (local, regional, and national). 
    • 6-week summer program (virtual or hosted on UR campus)
    • Intensive support during senior year college and financial aid application season

    This is a college preparation program, so we are looking to enrolling students who are interested in going to college. We are looking for students who have a drive to succeed, but may need academic advice, and/or guidance through the actual process of applying to college. 

    Thank you in advance for your help in identifying students who would benefit from being part of our Upward Bound family. Please let me know if you have any questions!
