Wilton Reviews

All Categories
We are one of the few Spanish families that live in Wilton. We’ve been here for 4 years and we like it. We enjoy the atmosphere and the amenities that the town has to offer, athletic and cultural, safety overall. Our children consider Wilton home, even though we spent a lot of time living in Stamford, CT. The public school is one of the best in CT, my children attended private schools in Stamford, but when we moved to Wilton there was no second thought and they started attending public schools, and they have done great.
Review Wilton
Wilton is a great town. It has a great school system, very safe, very protected, but unfortunately is in a bubble. I grew up in Wilton. I am very appreciative of growing up in such a competitive and engaging and supportive environment. However, it lacks diversity and external influences.
Wilton is a great place to grow up as long as you make the right friends and your family guides you in the right direction. While the town is run by money and upperclass families, it is important to look past that and enjoy your time there.
