"It's Greek to me." In many towns, this phrase might be a jokey slogan you'd hear at the local gyros stand. In Wilton, it refers to the classic tongue of Plato and Homer so rarely taught in public schools these days. At Wilton High School (WHS) however, 30 plus students study Greek, taught by award-winning teacher Max Gabrielson. Five other languages are also available: French, Spanish, German, Latin and Russian. Students at WHS also compete in lacrosse, skiing, and girls gymnastics. The local middle school, Middlebrook School, maintains a cozy 13 to 1 student teacher ratio.
The Wilton area boasts 500 restored 17th, 18th, and 19th century buildings. Ambler Farm, a 200-year old farm now owned by the town and undergoing historic restoration, offers classes in maple syrup making, sheep-shearing and bee hiving, among other educational programs. Surrounded by 375 acres of open land where bow-hunters stalk deer, Wilton has its own celebrity “Dear Hunter:” Academy Award-winning actor Christopher Walken.
