This school is fantastic. The teachers have brought out the best in my child. It is a very happy school where everyone is welcoming and the students respect and care for one another. The school does a great job of providing leadership opportunities for students of all ages.

We have three children at Wilson and love it! Our family has been there 6 yrs and believe it to be the best. The personal attention to each kid has noticeable results in their confidence and critical thinking school wide. Individual characters - of which I have three strongly unique flavors- have been encouraged, appreciated and accommodated comprehensively. The families/parents a wonderful and very down to earth. The school's moto" make your mark a good one" is simple, positive & it works. The teachers value childhood and having fun while learning. The curriculum map is robust. My K student

Great for kids who fit their "mold".. not so great for others. Communication with administration is not always as good as it should be.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
