HillTop Artists[edit]

Dale Chihuly, a glass artist who graduated from Wilson, established HillTop Artists, a glass working program at Wilson. For a $20 fee, students can blow glass, make glass beads, and participate in kiln work. This program is run by glass artists who trained with Chihuly at the Pilchuck Glass School.

Daffodil Festival[edit]

Every year, Wilson participates in the Pierce County Daffodil Festival. A competition is held in house to select the Wilson Princess. The Princess must have at least a 3.5 GPA and must be a senior. She will go on to compete against other regional schools for the Daffodil Festival Queen title. The Queen title is considered the highest honor of the regional festival. In April, the Wilson band accompanies the Wilson Princesses on a float in the annual parade.
