Ralph L. Fike High School is a high school located in Wilson, North Carolina.

History[edit]

The high school opened on October 9, 1958. There were 650 students, in grades 10 through 12, and a faculty of 28. The school was named for Dr. Ralph Llewellyn Fike, who was chairman of the Wilson County Board of Education and who had rendered outstanding service in the field of education.

After integration in 1970, only eleventh and twelfth graders attended the school. When the county and city schools merged in 1978, Fike housed grades 9-12. Today the school serves students from several communities and the staff has grown.
