Despite the principal position turning over every year we've been there, this has been a great place for my child to flourish academically and socially during what is traditionally a pretty awkward stage of life. The current principal is caring and engaging, as are the teachers we've encountered for the last 3 years there. We look forward to many more years with our younger children coming up!

My son attended Wildwood Middle School and I was VERY disappointed. Only two of his core subject teachers even bothered to update their sites. It took more than a week for the math teacher to return my email. I removed my son and placed him in private school -- and I wasn't the only parent to do this.

This is a great overall school. We don't get alot of homework, so we can spend time with our family and we get to spend time with our friends on the weekend.

We have moved away from Rockwood, and we really miss it. While there is a some variability in the quality of teachers, almost all of the teachers care deeply for the students and go above and beyond to make sure the overall educational experience is excellent. Parents are involved at Wildwood, and a strong PTO ensures that the students' best interests are always at the forefront. The gifted program is quite strong, as are the challenge courses. I would not hesitate to move back so that my younger child could attend Wildwood.

In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri.
