               Leadership Classes

Albuquerque Public Schools have incorporated Middle School Leadership Programs, that are designed to educate and train middle school cadets in citizenship, promote community service, instill personal responsibility, character, and self-discipline. 

The Wilson Middle School Leadership Program "Develops  citizens of character and tomorrows Leaders that are dedicated to serving their families, communities and school. 

The program achieves this through classroom education on Leadership, air and space fundamentals with hands on learning opportunities in a number of fun and challenging extra-curricular activities. 

The Wilson Leadership program is grounded in the Air Force core values of “integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.”

Exploratory Leadership Cadets will be on the Wheel Program and will focus on Leadership and Team Building Skills as well as an introduction to Aerospace Science.

Leadership I Cadets will focus on Aerospace Science and Engineering. We will be designing, building, wind testing and flying our own aircraft and rockets, as well as learning the basics of flying on our Flight Simulators.

Leadership II Cadets will focus on Military History and Civics. They will be trained in First Aid, CPR and Survival Skills. We will also further the Aerospace Science aspect with more technical projects.

There will be a degree of Academic rigor to the program and along the way your child will earn promotions and acquire new leadership responsibilities.

The Cadets will have the opportunity to become part of a Team and compete in competitions throughout the school year in such things as Archery, Color Guard, Drill and Physical Training. We will end the school year at the largest Middle School ROTC Competition in the State the Major William Barker Memorial Middle School Military Skills Meet in April.

Wilson has become Nationally Recognized as one of the Top Programs in APS, the State of New Mexico and the United States. With Numerous City, State and now National Titles!
