Wildwod was the best elementary school ever. My kids still want to go back to visit the prinipal Mrs. Blick whom they adore. Their teachers were all the best. Mrs. Devine, Mrs. Peters, Mrs. Craig, Mrs. Ross, Mrs. Myles, Mrs. Sheppard, Mrs. Martin (3rd grade), Mrs. Martin (4th grade),and Mrs. Busby.
Outstanding teachers & principal! The teachers are very involved with every student. My children love going to school every day especially since they get a warm greeting from the principal Mrs. Blick every morning. There are many opportunities for the students offered during and after school. The PTO is very welcoming to parent volunteers.
I have two children who attend Wildwood Elementary. We have been there for three years. I feel like the attention they are given from the teaching staff and Principal is phenomenal. I feel like as a parent my opinion is important to them and that they value what I have to say. I also enjoy that there is all kinds of opportunities for parent involvement if wanted.
Not very much support for children who are borderline in need of extra help. U of M say my son needs speech therapy...Wildwood said he isn't in that bad of need. When told he should speak to a therapist...Wildwood refused to let him speak to the one at the school (they said it their therapist wasn't what he needed). Must be nice to spencer $$$ for a new library and all the cool tech gadgets...maybe they should spend some on giving the staff "people skills"!
Wildwood is an outstanding school. I love the principal, she is very energetic and makes the students feel special and important. The teachers give students opportunities to learn, and be prepared with high expectations. They have special rewards and activities for positive behavior. There is always something they are doing to make learning a fun experience. I'm going to be volunteering every chance I can.
Wildwood has been a great school for my daughter. She attends the all day Kindergarten. It's so rewarding as a parent seeing the difference in her learning. She is so eager to learn that even on the weekends she is asking me if she has any homework left to do! The staff there is great, they keep you informed on everything that is going on. Over-all we've had a great experience and plan to send our youngest child there as well.
Wildwood is an excellent school. I have 2 boys that attend this school. One is in Kindergarten, and one is in 1st grade. The teachers are knowledgeable, and work with the parents and students. The principal is firm and I think that is wonderful these days. The environment is great because the children are encouraged to respect themselves and others. This is a great choice for parents who want their children to be smart and great citizens. I am very involved in the PTO and love working with all of the students, parents, and teachers.
I have had two children attending Wildwood and am disappointed with my experience this past year. The staff is awesome and they do what they can being they don't have much support. This school seems to spend more time discipining the misbehaving children than it does awarding the good students for their good behivior..
Both my girls go to the school one is in the full-day kindergarten and the other in 2nd and as the parent I have enjoyed the experience the staff is great and they try to inform of anything important. I plan on keeping my girls in the school.
My grandson is enrolled in the full-day Kindergarten program at Wildwood. Through my daughter, (his mom) I have become involved with the PTO organization. I have to say, I am thrilled with the entire staff. The principal, the office staff, and the Kindergarten staff are all simply amazing! My grandson is thriving, and my daughter and her husband look forward to being able to send their three year old to Wildwood as well. This experience has been a very pleasant one for the entire family. Thank you Wildwood staff for getting my grandson's school experience off to such a wonderful, flying start!
