The Wilberforce School Reviews
Rating 4.74 out of 5 73 reviews
Wilberforce has formed me into a promising and eager student with a nearly boundless future. I'm so excited to see what I can do with my education! My peers as well as my teachers build me up and consider my learning experience in everything they do and say. The community is amazing, and I will do everything I can to enroll my future kids in this school once I have a family.
Wilberforce is a school where students are encouraged to grow holistically; in their academics, extracurriculars, character, and faith. Teachers know the students for more than just their grades, and the community is very close-knit. It provides a unique environment with house competitions, a small student body, and large participation in sports and the arts, which lets students learn more about themselves and engage with other each other. Overall, my experience since joining the school has been incredible and has been marked with growth both inside and outside the classroom.
My daughter went all the way through Wilberforce, from Pre-K to 12th grade. Excellent school with excellent academics and a Christian world view instilled in students. They set my daughter up for success in college and beyond. Thank you!
We have had our two children at The Wilberforce School since middle school years. One graduated the high school last year and the other is now a junior in high school. We leave an excellent public school district in our town every morning as we commute over an hour each way to Wilberforce. That should indicate how strongly we feel about the quality of education, and character formation we are getting for our children. The whole school community - teachers, administration, students and families, are nothing short of extraordinary.
The academics are decent overall, but the sports they offer are not high level at all. Also there is not much choice for what classes your child can take, as the school chooses all your classes for you pretty much all the way through highschool.
Our family has had a phenomenal experience with The Wilberforce School during our eight years there. The academics, athletic program and spiritual life were all outstanding. The curriculum is challenging and exceptionally strong in both STEM and the humanities. We found the faculty to be not just amazing instructors, but also wonderful role models who truly care for their students. Wilberforce is also unique in how it educates the whole child, reinforcing the development of Christ-centered character and habits, as well as encouraging a joyful love of learning that their students will benefit from well beyond their years here. Having commuted quite a distance to attend, we consider the Wilberforce experience to be worth every mile.
This Christian community is welcoming and all the students are inclusive. Everyone knows each other and it is very easy to make friends with other students. The teachers meet every student's questions and needs.
Wilberforce is a great school. It is very academically rigorous and good for students who would like to be challenged. I appreciate how Wilberforce provides students with a lot of resources to gain leadership experience and try new things. The small class sizes make learning easier and more personalized.
I am a senior at the Wilberforce School and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. I especially enjoyed being a part of the theatre program here at Wilberforce since it was founded. My favorite part about Wilberforce is having the opportunities to be in any club or on any sports team.
I have had a great 5 years at Wilberforce. The teachers are very supportive. The small school size enables students to participate in a range of activities.
Typically, being the new kid in junior year of high school is hard, yet here at The Wilberforce School, friend groups aren't necessarily a thing.
My experience at Wilberforce has transformed me as a person. The Upper School humanities curriculum in particular is outstanding. The teachers and admin clearly care about the student body and are usually very responsive if there are concerns brought up. There are many opportunities to lead clubs, play a sport etc. although many of these clubs & teams are still in its early stages. The small school environment can at times feel like a bubble, but the strong bonds of the community make it all worth it. I can say with certainty that my ten years at Wilberforce have been worth it!
Wilberforce is great!. The teachers are incredible and really care about what they are teaching and about their students. The athletics are fairly competitive considering the size of the school, but the small class sizes help cultivate a great community between the students and with the teachers.
I think WIlberforce is a great school!!! The teachers are excellent. I made wonderful friends. I enjoy the athletics at our school.
The community that I have been blessed to be apart of for the last 5 years has truly been he best experience of my life!
The Wilberforce School has not only equipped me for college but for life as well. The teachers are wonderful, they truly invest in their students. I made great lifetime friends.
We have been so pleased with our experience at Wilberforce. Teachers are engaged and excited about teaching. Students are thoughtful, respectful participants. Wilberforce is a breath of fresh air, allowing kids to grow in faith and academics while enjoying the true meaning of childhood. We couldn’t be happier at Wilberforce.
I really enjoyed my time at Wilberforce. The teachers are caring and extremely loving. Although I can not say my time at Wilberforce was perfect, every time where our class had any troubles the dean immediately stepped in and helped. Highly highly recommend this school!
Very nice school and environment. I like it a lot and there's high quality education and very faith based belief. My classmates are super nice and you get to know the whole school very well. In sports everyone are very supportive and no one would tease you if you did anything wrong. All the teachers are nice and funny and I like all of them.
Best school ! It is so much more than they tell you it is when you tour. Best experience. This is a place where children flourish and enjoy learning.
