History[edit] Woodrow Wilson Classical High School was established in 1925 as the second school in the city, and ultimately opened for classes in 1926.[6] The institution was named after Woodrow Wilson, who was an American politician and served as the 28th president of the United States. In 1926, a group of high school students chose the nickname Bruins as well as the colors Cardinal and Gold for Long Beach Wilson, due to close distance of two prestigious research universities, the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of Southern California, respectively.[7]


Academics[edit] Ethnic group of students, 2016-17 school year [8] Ethnic group Percentage American Indian or Alaska Native >1.0% Asian 7.0% Black 11.2% Filipino 1.7% Hispanic 56.7% Mixed >1.0% Other 2.2% Pacific Islander >1.0% White 19.2% The "Classical" Term[edit] Woodrow Wilson Classical High School earned the distinction of being "classical" (hence the term being in the official school name) when they offered graduates a diploma with higher distinction than the regular diploma across the Long Beach Unified School District. Those who earned the "classical" diploma fulfilled one year of performing or visual arts and two years of foreign language in addition to the minimum requirements to graduate from a LBUSD high school. Wilson is the only school to offer such a high school diploma in the district.[9][10] Pathways[edit] The institution offers five distinct pathways: Wilson Academic Vision of Excellence, School of the Arts, School of Leadership & Public Service, School of Medicine & Biotechnology, and School of Technology. The Distinguished Scholars program is offered to students who are in a school pathway and met academic requirements in middle school. [11] Wilson Academic Vision of Excellence Commonly referred to as WAVE, the Wilson Academic Vision of Excellence is the most rigorous pathway offered at the school. This liberal arts intensive program provides students the resources to earn acceptances at elite universities and colleges. In order to be qualified, students must earn a 3.7 GPA in middle school and pass Algebra I with at least a C. Students must follow a road-map to graduation, which includes at least ten Advanced Placement courses.[12] Advanced Placement[edit] Woodrow Wilson Classical High school is a participating institution of the Advanced Placement program, which offers students the opportunity to gain college credit albeit two-year and four-year colleges having different policies for granting A.P. credit, if any. The program is maintained by College Board, an organization that administers the AP exams. Long Beach Wilson offers students the chance to participate in Advanced Placement for 27 different disciplines. Although there may be requirements to take an A.P. class, it is possible to challenge any A.P. exam (where the student takes the exam by being an autodidact for the discipline tested), regardless if Long Beach Wilson offers the course or not. As of the 2014-15 school year, Long Beach Wilson had 49% of the 12th grade student body tested at some time during high school where 71% of those passed at least one exam.[13] Advanced Placement Courses[14] Art History Biology Calculus AB Calculus BC Chemistry English Language and Composition English Literature and Composition Environmental Science French Language and Culture German Language and Culture Human Geography Macroeconomics Music Theory Physics 1 Physics 2 Psychology Research Seminar Spanish Language and Culture Spanish Literature and Culture Statistics Studio Art: 2-D Studio Art: 3-D Studio Art: Drawing United States Government and Politics United States History World History Rankings[edit] According to US News, Long Beach Wilson is No. 240 in the state and No. 1,301 in the nation for best overall high schools for the 2016-17 school year. Wilson also earned a silver medal, a distinction awarded for placing 501st to 2,673th best in the nation and had at least a 20.17 college readiness index.[15] Wilson is the 3rd best high school in the Long Beach Unified School District.[16] According to The Washington Post, Woodrow Wilson Classical High School is No. 1,024 in the nation for "America's Most Challenging High Schools."[17] According to Niche, Long Beach Wilson is No. 150 in the nation for "Standout Schools in America," which recognizes how much the school has positively impacted their community. Also, Wilson is No. 294 in the nation for "Most Diverse Public High Schools in America," which notes the diversity of a high school in terms of ethnicity.[18] Wilson Science Building


Athletics[edit] The Long Beach Wilson Bruins participate in the CIF Southern Section under the California Interscholastic Federation.

The Bruins have a fierce rivalry with the Jackrabbits of Long Beach Poly across all sports, which originated from an American football match in 1932.[19] Varsity teams[edit] The Bruins sponsor varsity teams in 12 boys', 12 girls', and three coed sports.
