Incompetent administrators this year. I have noticed a severe drop in structure this year due to 2 new administrators who do not know what they are doing. It is very sad because this used to be the best performing school in the district and my younger daughter's last 2 young teachers have been wonderful. I do not think I will return to this school next year despite the great experience I have had with the teachers. Too bad the superintendent made the changes he did. Look elsewhere for your child's education.

My daughter attends 1st grade at W.W. They welcomed a new principal this year, Dr Michael T. Derczo. I find him to be a dedicated, involved, and hands-on leader. This evidenced by everything from his presence directing traffic and assisting his staff in the oversight of child safety each morning to the makeshift desk he chooses to work from in the hallway each day (allowing him to stay connected to the heart of the school (our children). My daughter's teacher is a wonderful, down-to-earth woman with an obvious talent and passion for the education of children. And I could not be happier with the content of class/homework my daughter receives. She admires and respects her teacher, performs at above average levels across all subjects and LOVES to go to school! What more could a parent ask for from an institution?

I only have one child who just so happened is now in the kindergarden class at Woodrow Wilson. I am involved in the PTA and his teachers are great. We have great communication and she sends me information on a regular basis. She also gave the parents her home phone number, which I have used on more than one occasion. I am extremely pleased with the staff at the center.

I currently have 3 students enrolled in Woodrow Wilson. They are all achieving at or well above the state averages. My 3rd grader has read all of the Harry Potter books and is currently reading 'Lord of the Rings'. My 5th grader is a wonderful debater, he has learned how to research and present a topic completely. My Kindergarten student is well on his way to reading and does adding and subtracting. The staff is outstanding and incredibly dedicated to the school and its students and families. The administration couldn't be better. The Principal and Vice Principal have the respect and admiration of the parents and guardians and are equally respected by the students themselves. Woodrow Wilson is a gem in the New Jersey education system and was named a National Blue Ribbon School in 1998. I am proud to be a member of the Woodrow Wilson Family!

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
