Wilcox County High School
In 2013 the school had 400 students.
Historically, the school had segregated proms: white students attended parent-organized proms while black students attended separate parent-organized proms. The proms were not organized by the school administration. In 2012 a black student from the school was voted the Homecoming Queen; however, she did not purchase a ticket to the homecoming dance but felt that she had been insulted because she was still expected to pay to participate in the privately funded dance. In 2013 students organized the first private racially integrated prom. In 2013 the school district announced that it would consider holding a school-sponsored integrated prom in 2014.
