I am so very happy that my kids have gone to this school. Their staff and teachers are great! They really make the kids happy and make them work hard for their futures. I highly recommend Wilson Avenue to all the moms out there.

This school is an excellent school because students are able to learn and feel safe at the same time & be able to get the vibe from teachers that they truely are there to help.

Great Staff and administrators. The building is so old. The Ironbound is in need of new modern facilities.

My child went there for Kindergarten. Out of the local school choices I felt comfortable choosing this one. They had plenty of activities and my daughter's teacher, Mr. Texiera, really motivated the kids and challenged the students based on thier personal abilities. He was readily available for conferences and gave tips/suggestions when asked. For Kindergarten it was fine. I can't say how well it fares for grade school levels. We relocated to another state after Kindergarten.

My children have attended Wilson Ave School for 4 years now. I have had very good and positive experiences there. The teachers and staff have always been very supportive and involved. The guidence and nurcing staff are awsome. They have free after school programs and a school band that they are developing. The staff are interested in developing strong ties to children and families. I have three children and they are recognized as a family and if one is acting up the teachers have always taken the time to inform a sibling so it gets to me or they call me personally.
