The school has certain events like fundraising for cancer patients and I could feel that my kid was genuinely interested to make an effort for these causes

I have had first hand experience talking to the teachers during the parent teacher conference and have participated in year long school activities to feel that the school develops honesty, integrity and fairness in its student

We moved to Norwalk 2 years ago and got admission for my son in Wolfpit school. We were very happy with the administration and the teachers at Wolfpit school. The teachers are extremely good from nursery to grade 5 and my kid loves to go to school everyday. He has done very good and has also received recognition in his class and was given citizenship awards 2 years in a row. I am very satisfied with his progress and am thankful to the teachers who are dedicated to teach our kids with such outstanding skills. I am looking forward for the next year of my kid's school year.

We have had a good experience at Wolfpit! Most of the teachers are outstanding and really care about the kids and giving them a good education. Academics are strong, and there are several subgroups with very high test scores. Don't be misled by comparing test scores to neighboring school districts. Those school districts have almost no racial or economic diversity, and do not reflect the real world. Wolfpit does a great job preparing its students for middle school and beyond!

Wolfpit School is fantastic, teachers and staff are extremely attentive and supportive. Staff knew my son's name by week 2, that's not very common for a school with almost 400 children. My son's Kindergarten teacher is enthusiastic, experienced and motivated, she is now going for her doctoral degree! She is also genuinely care about the kids. The PTO is absolutely amazing! These people work hard to make sure that the children and teachers are given all the support they need. They go far and beyond to help our children! Parents are always updated on recent news, fundraising, etc... I'm very happy to volunteer for this school, with all the education budget cut in this town this is the minimum I can do for my children... and luckily it seems that other parents in this school think the same way. My son is thriving and always wants to go to school .Btw, he also loves it's brand new playground! Love Wolfpit!

I've been a Wolfpit parent for 11 years. During that time, I've been very, very pleased with the performance of the administration, teachers and additional staff members. Their dedication and hard work is reflected in the students' performance. My children have all had happy experiences during their years at Wolfpit and the older ones look back on their years there fondly. As a parent, I can say that my kids (and their classmates) were well prepared for Jr. High School both academically and socially. It is located in a safe neighborhood. The PTO is active and communicative. Fundraising events are fun rather than arduous, and the school goes out of its way to contribute to a sense of community. As another poster said, the downside is parking, but we all manage to get by with a little bit of patience.

I have found Wolfpit to be a wonderful school! The teachers are very good, caring, and have treated my daughter very well. The education she receives I am very happy with, and that is my main concern. My child is in a very safe neighborhood, as well as a very educational environment, with other great children to befriend and to enjoy to be with while she is learning. Wolfpit school also offers incredible educational activities to the children, such as the ACHIEVE program before & after school. The one thing I enjoy very much is having the opportunity to go to the school library and read to my daughter and her classmates. I can't wait to do the same for my son when he goes to Wolfpit in the fall. There are frustrating times, such as parking but overall, I feel Wolfpit is a great school!
