Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
From a young age students learn about bullying, being a bystander and how to intervene and prevent bullying. They are given a lot of tools.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
I think the school stays true to it's mission. They base a lot of their decisions on research and they implement change often.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
A large part of the curriculum includes self-assessment, understanding diversity and being inclusive.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Most of the teachers seem really excited to be at Wildwood. They know the students and take a very strong interest in the individual's well-being.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
There is little to no homework in the lower school, and it gets progressively heavier as the students get into the high school.

Wildwood approaches education in a unique way. The result is children that are curious, vocal, confident and intellectual.

Both of my children have been at Wildwood since kindergarten, with the oldest now in the 8th grade. They are avid learners, love school, and are both incredibly academically, intellectually and socially competent. Wildwood focuses on what it really means to be a lifelong learner. It values curiosity, being a self-starter, caring for others, and making positive change in the world. It's the school that you wish you went to as a kid because you know you would be better today for it. It also is the school you feel grateful exists if your goal is to try and raise ethical, intelligent and thoughtful children.

Our 3 daughters graduated from Wildwood. They loved going to school and getting a top education. We're so grateful for the extraordinary educational community at Wildwood, and we've found them to be 100% available for the students. Our daughters have become critical thinkers with big hearts who went on to exceptional colleges and felt ready to take on their passions in life.

We graduated all 3 of our daughters from Wildwood. We LOVE it. It is an extraordinary, magical, rigorous, engaging, academic community. The teachers are uniformly outstanding. The heads of school are smart, available and forward-thinking. The parent body is warm, wise + welcoming. The young women our daughters have become are exceptionally WHOLE, informed, funny and academically-impressive young adults. All have graduated from or are attending top-tier colleges (including an Ivy). Their academic prowess continues to impress. My wife + I attribute a great-deal of our children's success to their experience at Wildwood. It is a magical place... filled with extraordinary people.

We have had some great years with great teachers at the lower school, and some bad years with bad teachers. We have just learned, from this website, that the upper school is switching to a "tracked" system. Pretty scary, because Wildwood's greatest weakness is working with the individual needs of children. The culture is dominated by a self-congratulatory clique of elite families who dictate the tone and acceptable discourse. I am sure that all of their children will find themselves on the high track, though. In our experience, the school leadership is wise and positive, but actually quite unresponsive to most parents. Wildwood is a special school. But get ready to take your lumps if you are an ordinary family who has to work hard to afford the tuition. They will let you in, but you will never be a member of the club, and your kid will just have to wait her turn for a good teacher and endure the bad ones. You should never complain at Wildwood. They discourage that. Wildwood is a capitalist reserve in a commune's clothing. There are some gifted teachers. But to survive Wildwood -- you go along to get along.
