“We Are Trojans”

Dear Wood Memorial Jr/Sr. High Students and Parents,

I look forward going into my second year as the principal at Wood Memorial Jr./Sr. High School.  My passion for educating children has been shaped over the past eighteen years in Spencer and Vanderburgh counties as a social studies teacher, football coach, assistant principal, principal, director of student services, and most recently chief leadership strategist.  In each position it has always been my goal to provide every child who walks through the door with an opportunity to learn and participate in extracurricular activities in a school with a culture and climate that promotes excellence.

A well rounded education means rigorous academic instruction from top-notch teachers as well as opportunities outside the classroom for students to develop character and cultivate passions.  Most importantly, an excellent education is a collaboration between students, parents and staff. With hard work and enthusiasm I hope to become an integral part of the community, working together with all of you to carry on old traditions and create new possibilities for the students at Wood Memorial Jr./Sr. High. 

I encourage you to take advantage of the Harmony online system in order to gain information about the academic progress of your student.  Information is updated on a weekly basis, providing you with the latest data. For questions regarding Harmony you may contact the office for assistance.  I am looking forward to a great year! Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions, concerns or ideas you would like to discuss.

Yours in Education,

James  Wilson
