This school has it all, at times it seems like it's an entity of it's own, with the benefits of a public school (accountability, in my neighborhood and free), yet the attention and and care of a small unique school which is very hard to find these days. I haven't spoken to one person who hasn't raved about Wildwood. The children and parents alike all cry when their children move on after 5th grade. Truly a life long family here, and the students all excel as they move on to middle school and beyond.

We just moved my daughter here last Oct. 2013 and we are very happy with the school. Awesome principal; Administration is wonderful; PTA is together; the teachers are caring. We love it here. My daughter is doing way better at this school. Clean. Parents and students are involved. Principal is wonderful.

We moved to Thousand Oaks at the beginning of this school year. My son was hurt in a boating accident the weekend before school started. The staff, students, teachers, and the principal have been supportive, helpful, caring and encouraging the entire year. My daughter tried out for student council, something she would have never done at her old school. We all love this school and feel very fortunate to have our kids enrolled here.

My son had a lot of difficulty in school last year. His focus was way off and I was going to pull him out of sports to help him focus more on academics. The principal suggested running some tests before he felt he was being "punished" for his grades not being up to par. It turns out he had a slight learning disability, the school has been phenomenal in working with him. His grades improved and his self esteem shot up... and he was even able to keep playing his sports. I can't thank this school enough for stepping up, identifying the problem, and coming up with a solution. GREAT GREAT GREAT school!

This is our 2nd year at Wildwood after transferring from another local school. We made the best decision ever for our family to send our children here. What a community of families and school leaders coming together for students. This school has the best PTA and parent volunteers. And the API scores go up every year. Love Wildwood!

The best school! We also feel so lucky to have our children attend this incredible school, where the teachers and staff are so caring, the education top notch (see the new API scores!), the fun and exciting events that are always going on, and the families and friends we have made are some of the life's best. Mr Hedin, the principal, is a wonderful and dedicated leader of some of the most amazing teachers. Thank you to the Wildwood staff for their love, committment, dedication and school pride. ~Go Wildwood Tigers!
