Wilson Elementary School5

Wilson is by far the best elementary school in Caldwell. Wilson has the best staff! Excellent caring teachers, a committed principal, a fantastic PTO, actively involved parents, and respectful happy students. This school is a 10! I feel so fortunate to have Wilson as my child's assigned school.
I thought this school was great. The principle cares, as do all the teachers and staff. Was very impressed with the special education classroom as well. They do their best and actually try to teach these kids... Can't say that is true of every school I've interacted with, sadly.
schools need to have more compassions and respect. And it needs to come from the TEACHERS AND STAFF First!! If you demand these things from the students then YOU need to show it and teach it to them! It's sad that children can be treated so rudely and imbaressed in front of their classmates but when it comes to a teacher being told something it gets to be "private"! Follow the Golden Rule- Treat others as you want to be treated. This goes for children as well! Adults need to be the example and role models.
I absolutely disagree with the person who made the comment about the principal not caring. He most certainly does, and has been nothing but exellent with the parents, school and staff. Just because you don't get your way with something does not mean it's not being done correctly. I also do not see a bullying problem at this school. The staff, teachers and parents are so involved with the kids that it is incredible. It's an awesome school, and by far the best elementary school in the district.
This is a terrible school. The principal doesn't care at all about making things work for the students. He doesn't listen or care, he does what he wants. There is a lot of bullying going on there, and kids are getting beat up on the playground. However, if you have a child in special ed, that is the only thing good about that school.
