I love this school! I think the smaller the school the closer the community is!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 22, 2008

I have two kids in Wrenshall School. I really like the small school atmosphere and feel that it is beneficial for the kids. The kids get lots of one on one time with the teachers. I went to a very large school when I was young and I really only knew the kids in my grade. In Wrenshall, the kids know other kids from all grade levels. Since the High School and Elementary are attached, the older kids are encouraged to interact with the younger children and mentor them. There is a lot of positive interaction betwen the High School kids and the Elementary kids, which I feel is beneficial for everyone. The teachers and staff here are really great and although it's a small school, they keep up with the continued advancements in technology.

All three of my children attend Wrenshall-grades ranging from 2nd to 11th grade. The small town atmosphere, the one on one and the general caring of teachers and staff have me convinced that Wrenshall was and is the best choice for my children's education. Scale of 1-10, I'd rate it a 9.5!

Great! Super teacher to student ratio. Lots of opportunities for students to experience everything.
