Welcome to Wicomico High
Vision:
As “One Tribe,” we will challenge ourselves daily to reach our greatest potential by demonstrating respect, responsibility and integrity in our academics and behaviors.


Last week all students in Wicomico County were given a School Climate Survey letter to give to their parent or guardian.  Students, parents, and school staff will be given an opportunity to share their insights about Wicomico County in a district-wide on-line climate survey starting this Tuesday.   This survey is an important tool of discovery for the Wicomico school system and the community it serves.  Survey results will help inform and guide us as we work together to make our schools even better.  The School Climate Survey will take place December 6th through December 12th and you can find the survey online at www.wcboe.org.  Click on the blue Climate Survey button to start your survey.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

  • December 21st is the deadline to sign up for the January 21st SAT test.  Any questions, see your guidance counselor.
  • The interest meeting for the student trip to Europe in 2018 will take place on Tuesday, December 6th at 5:30pm in the Media Center.  Any questions, see Ms. Crissman for more information.
  • Now is the time to nominate that deserving teacher at Wicomico High School for some special recognition! Nominations for 2017-2018 Wicomico Teacher of the Year will be taken from Nov. 14 through Dec. 12.  The form is located in the front office or go to  www.wcboe.org and look for the Teacher of the Year button on the home page.
