EB Wilson High School is named after Edwin Blackburn Wilson who was a beloved teacher, principal and superintendent. EB Wilson High School was originally founded in 1987 as a credit recovery program. It supported area high schools by aiding students who needed or wanted to attend school beyond the typical school day. EB Wilson High School began accepting fulltime students in the fall of 1994 and held its first graduation ceremony in the spring of 1995. In July of 2011, Tennessee’s General Assembly passed The Virtual Public Schools Act. This Act allowed, for the first time in our state, the creation and operation of a public online school. In 2012, E. B. Wilson High School moved from its Hendersonville location to Gallatin and was re-established in the fall of 2013 as EB Wilson Virtual High School.
In 2014, EB Wilson Virtual School changed from the Hawks to the Phoenix Bird. As documented throughout history; the Phoenix Bird is a bird that burned to ashes, however rose up from the ashes to be reborn and start anew. The Phoenix bird represents a fresh start and a new beginning, as is the case for many of our students that attend EB Wilson Virtual High School.
