History[edit]

Wicomico High School

The current campus on Long Avenue replaced Wicomico High School on East Main Street. The replaced facility is now Wicomico Middle School. The Long Avenue campus was completed in 1954 at a price of 1.5 million dollars. At that time the school became known as Wicomico Senior High School.

An administration building and an auditorium were added in 1975 and 1976. Additionally, extensive renovations were completed in 1995. At that time, Wicomico Senior High School was renamed Wicomico High School.

Susan Ward, an English teacher at Wicomico High School for 31 years, was recognized for her outstanding work in the classroom on March 21, 2007 when she was named 2007-08 Wicomico Teacher of the Year.
