I am so grateful for this school. It is a warm, loving, happy place. The teachers are talented and dedicated, and the entire staff takes a real interest in the children's well-being. As a result of the tone set by the teachers, staff and administration, the atmosphere at Wyoming is one of kindness and respect, and although I'm sure it must happen sometimes, I have never witnessed a single incident of teasing or bullying among the children, who tend to be incredibly generous and supportive of each other. Children in older grades serve as "buddies" and mentors to younger children, which increases the feeling of solidarity. The children get art, music, library and computers once a week, and physical education twice a week. The music and gym programs are particularly strong, in our experience. Class sizes are small: Last year, there were 22 students in my daughter's class; this year there are 16. I wish that all children in this country had access to this quality of education, and I say a little prayer of thanks for how lucky we are every time I drop my daughter at the door.
