It's been a while since I attended Wilcoxson, but since the neighborhood remains very strong I suspect that the school has as well. The group of kids with whom I graduated are now grown up and we include a CNN producer, novelist, children's book author, several lawyers, engineers, and a history professor. Wilcoxson was and probably remains a special place--very supportive, academically-focused, and friendly, with dedicated teachers and loving parents who expect their children to succeed.

Our two boys attended Wilcoxson. They are now out of college. They had an excellent education there as well as a nurturing, emotionally supportive experience. It is a very warm, friendly place. Now our disabled daughter attends part time with a personal para. The staff at Wilcoxson has welcomed her with opened arms and has found ways to make her feel included with her peers even though she requires many modifications to her time there. We will miss it there greatly when she leaves. Thank you to all the staff, volunteers and students for all of your caring.

All three of my children have attended Wilcoxson and without a doubt it is one of the best schools and this is the best School District in Connecticut.

I just graduated from Wilcoxson, and I am now currently in Wooster.I absolutely loved Wilcoxson and miss it! My younger brother goes there now, and seems to like it so far. Every teacher is personal and helps you with any problems you may have, including, academically, physically, and emotionally. Overall it's a great school. Tigers '09

My son attended Wilcoxson for 3 years and he loved it. He is in Middle School now but he is always happy to go back and visit. He needed a little help adjusting since he had come from another school and he received one on one help in the subjects that he needed. The principal knows each child by name and personally talks to any child that is experiencing any kind of difficulty. My little girl also attends Wilcoxson, she started in kindergarten and expressed to me that she wants to stay in Wilcoxson until she graduates. She needed extra help in reading and she received individual help and right now is reading above her reading level. She really enjoys reading and I attribute it to the kindness and patience of her reading teacher.
