For six years the Wilson standard has been worthy of admiration. This year there is a new principal on campus, and we have noticed a change. As parents, we feel the parent viewpoint is of little consequence to the new principal. Some of the very best teachers around can be found at Wilson, and we are grateful that they are there to help maintain a standard of learning we appreciate in this community. Teacher dress code is a concern for several parents. (Do some teachers need to come to work looking like they were just at the gym or ready to head out for cocktails?). We will stand by Wilson because there so many positive people on campus, but we are missing our old principal and all that he stood for at Wilson. So far the new principal has stood for very little.
The curriculum is far below any other schools in the area. The teachers and staff are just interested in the students memorization for AIMS testing.
In five days this school managed to turn my son from an excited, willing student to someone who dreaded even stepping foot on campus. The teachers are not interested in getting to know or even care about the students needs. When my son was struggling in math, he was punished by the teacher and not offered any extra assistance. I was told over and over that he must be ADHD and needs to be on drugs. She preferred to tell me this in front of his classmates to embarass him. At his new, wonderful school, he has thrived, overcome his difficulties (without being drugged) and has never had any problems.
I have two children attending this school and love it! We have had our problems but the principal has been there to help out in every way! This is a great school and we are glad that our children are not only learning, but they are safe there too!
Wilson is a great school! Our daughters love it, from the teachers, staff, transportation everything. We would highly recommend this school
I have had 3 children attend Wilson Elementary. The principal and staff are continuously going above and beyond whats expected of them to ensure the success of our kids. This is the only school that I've actually seen the principal so positively involved with the students that he is able to call most students by name. There is a sense of community at Wilson that I have never before experienced! My kids love it and I love it!
I had heard nothing but good things about this school before my daughter attended kindergarten there. I was debating on sending her to a private school, but I finally decided to give Wilson a try. I am certainly glad I did! The teachers are well organized, serious about school, and the principal is extremely involved and offers many incentives for learning and excelling in education. The curriculum here is well above par, and may be a bit tough for a transfer student. However, with the assistance of the kind and patient teachers, the parental involvement, and the students' encouragement, every student should excel at this school. I am extremely impressed. No matter where I live (we will be moving about 15 miles away) I will still drive my child to Wilson.
The Principal and the teaching staff are outstanding! Wilson is a very well organized. They care about their students and make every effort to foster a positive goal oriented learning environment. The goals are realistic and acheivments are recognized with various daily,weekly,monthly and yearly awards.
