Moving my kids from a private school, I was very skeptical and heard horror stories; however, Wilbur has helped me realize that there is not a significant difference in quality of public-vs-private schools. If a child is not excelling at Wilbur, it's not due to the staff at the school. Parent involvement is a must. My experience at Wilbur has been excellent for both of my kids.

Wilbur is a great School. Both my sons attend and they always tell how much love going. The teachers and staff are willing to go the extra mile to help in any situation. I definitely recommended Wilbur elementary to all that I know.

Relatively new school with excellent teachers that care about the students. My daughter loved kindergarten and now loves her first grade teachers. Safe and clean environment. Would recommend.

My granddaughter really like her school. This is her second year at Wilber. She was really glad th no longer be attending her previous school. This school has great security and the staff all seem to enjoy their job. They really focus on the children's needs.

My daughter just started at this school this year, in 1st grade. We have had an awesome experience all the way around. The teach is fantastic, communicates weekly and immediately responds to e-mails and folder communication. The principle sets the tone for the teachers and students to follow and it appears to be working. Great school, positive attitudes, excellent PTA.

As a parent of three kids at this school, I am extremely disappointed. The class time teaching is ineffective for the older kids who come home unprepared to complete assignments that were sent home b/c they ran out of class teaching time.The "specials" are a joke as the kids spend most of the time being reprimanded for not remaining quiet. No vocabulary or spelling tests. Science & Social Studies are on a sometime rotation. Younger kids get silly packets sent home on Monday to finish by Friday that is capable of completion in 1hour sitting. The reports cards offer no constructive assistance only scripted comments like "participates" and "listens". Teacher responses to parents are slow..two days and even up to a week. Of course there are a few exceptions like "Mr. X" updates class webpage weekly with classroom activities. Overall: uninterested, uninspiring and callous teaching staff.
