Quality education and a great school system are extremely important to us for our two children, both of whom are at Wayside elementary school. The parent-teacher involvement in advancing the education of students and ensuring they are on track is extremely high and a leading indicator of the school's success. This is coupled by an endearing principal and vice principal who run a very tight ship and do not miss a beat! Their disciplined approach keeps this school at the top of the list and is attributabke to the school's great reputation

Wayside Elementary school is amazing. I have children there, and just can't speak enough about it. Excellent principal and vice-principal, they are on top of every detail in the school. The teachers are amazing, and they key on health and safety. We sure pay high taxes, but it's money well spent.

Wayside School was an outstanding experience for both our children. They left with strong academic skills, solid foundations for future learning, and great memories. The teachers were exemplary in their fields--in some cases the best in the state with so much caring for our children and community. The extracurricular opportunities including chorus, tennis, roller skating after school, and parent-child nights made them love the school all the more. The district and town offer so many community activities to begin with, the school just complimented it so well. The PTA offered so many experiences to become involved in the school in a positive way including the Carnival, Book Fair, Computer Room volunteering, Library volunteering, Reading Incentive Programs, Saturday Movie Afternoons, Blue Claws games, Kindergarten Round-up, Adopt-A-Family activities, Science Fair, Art Expo and family events left a very positive impact on our family. You're crazy not to love this school! -R.J. 2006

I think this school is very lovely and when we moved here, I was expecting this school to be the best school for my kids because I've heard so much of wonderful things about it. But I'd not recommend this school for any parents with disabilities needs or for their children either, the school is not very senstive to our needs nor being supportive or make any efforts to help at all. I had and still going through hassles and frustration with this school for the last couple of months. Because of this school not showing any efforts or concerns to meet parents and children with special needs, we now have to move back to the same town that School has always been wonderful for children with special needs and meets parents needs also and shows alot of support,caring, moviations willing to help without hesitations or judged or critized.

I went to this school as a child. Now, my children go to this school. The principal and staff are wonderful, caring and supportive. The school is also in a great town to raise a family.
