This school is a diamond in the rough. I can not say enough good things about it. The Principle is very caring and calm. His door is always open if you have any problems or concerns. I have a daughter with ADHD and the teachers have been very helpful with diagnosing her and working on strategies to put her on the right path. This fall a kindergartener was diagnosed with brain cancer and the PTO put together a fundraiser for him in 2 weeks (right before Christmas) and we more than exceeded our expectations for this event. I will always love this school.

Empathic, sensitive teachers who teach to the individual child. Definitely shows what the combination of smaller classes and excellent children can accomplish in the lower grades.

Wilcox is a great school with a talented staff who love and care about all thier students. Wilcox is really a family and the kids learn alot about respect. All the teacher go above and beyond to help thier students be the best they can be. They offer after school tutoring, basketball programs, and even a drama club. Most of the children are neighborhood kids and become great friends all through grade school. This is a place for a great education with a caring teacher.
