Make Your Mark A Good One is the motto of the school. This year's theme is respect but there is no curriculum beyond a song taught to further this theme. The head himself is not a model of respect and, as mentioned in earlier reviews, bullying (the ultimate kind of disrespect) continues. The school does not value diversity of learning styles or religion. The school as an organization does not support students and families that have differing perspectives from their own. The school also censors expression regularly. This year they did not even publish the results of their mock presidential election to their student body. The rationale was that it would be too difficult for some students and parents to cope with the results. What kind of learning experience is this? What kind of respect for others have our children learned from that experience?
Wonderful school with fantastic teachers, an accelerated curriculum personalized to each child's needs, in a warm, family-like environment. The unique two teacher model (all the way from prek to grade 6) is a real strength. They also emphasize character building and community engagement.
The Wilson School is not just a school but a community. My child feels safe and cared for at school. She knows all of the teachers and staff and they know all of the children.
The small class size allows for children to learn at their own pace and have the one on one attention that they need and deserve.
The academic program at the Wilson School is amazing. The teachers are highly experienced and supported with continuing enrichment programs that keep their curricula current and challenging. I appreciate the multi-disciplinary teaching approaches, the attention given to each student, the international perspectives, and the number of male teachers. My sons are graduating Wilson with organizational and writing skills that will carry them through the most competitive secondary schools.
My 3 daughters had an outstanding experience at the Wilson School. In addition to the outstanding academic preparation for secondary school, the Wilson School provides a warm, nurturing environment where each child is known.
