About Wilson



Wilson High school first opened its doors in 1926 and will graduate its 89th senior class this coming June.  A strong tradition of both academic and athletic excellence has inspired multiple generations to want their children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren to wear the cardinal and gold of a Wilson Bruin. 




Why It’s a Great Day to be a Bruin:


  • Ranked by Newsweek among the top 4% of U.S. high schools every year since 2003
  • Named by the Washington Post as the nation’s most challenging high schools, based on the school’s ability to offer rigorous college prep courses
  • The Post ranked Wilson in the top 5% of high schools nationwide and highest among the four similarly ranked large comprehensive high schools in LBUSD
  • Wilson offers 25 Advanced Placement (AP) courses, including the College Board's newest Capstone courses, AP Seminar and AP Research 
  • The Bruins have won 62 CIF Championships and 388 Moore League Championships!
  • Wilson has also had an Olympian in every summer Olympiad since 1952, that’s over 37 Olympians
