    The Wilson School Reviews

    Our family's experience has been extraordinary so far. The genuine love and interest that Wilson teachers and administrators have for every student's success is second to none. While The Wilson School community is slightly smaller than other primary schools in the area, it quickly becomes less important when you see the 6th graders that are produced from Wilson. They are academically and socially prepared, they have a sense of community and collaboration, and they have a global perspective which is further developed as they go on to many of the top secondary schools in the region.

    The Wilson School has been a phenomenal school for my two children. The teachers are excellent. They personalize education within an accelerated curriculum. They support social/emotional learning, character building, public speaking/performing, music, art, along with the traditional math, science, literacy work. The relatively small environment makes it feel like a second family to students, where they are comfortable taking risks and participating in class. I highly recommend Wilson to those in the area. I have seen my children grow and develop into well-rounded individuals.
    When you first walk into Wilson, you enter the beautiful library, the heart of the school. The PreK-3rd grade classrooms all open directly into the library space, with the upper school, grades 4-6, downstairs. Every classroom has two full-time teachers- not one- dedicated to their students. Every child is known at Wilson by all faculty and administration, with such care taken to find the best-fit approach to teaching each child. My kids have blossomed here. They love going to school, they love learning here, they actually come home from school each day and start their homework right away, and (no exaggeration) they're excited to go back after weekends and breaks.
