This is our first year in the school after coming from a private K program. The teachers and staff have been absolutely wonderful! They are extremely responsive to our needs and have gone above and beyond to care for our child. We were extremely nervous about the public school transition, but LDW has made it seem easy. I think the school has done amazing things in spite of its overall small size.
Students are all treated with respect and the children are encouraged to be honest and solve disagreements in a peaceful manner. We have been very pleased with the general approach to discipline and structure.
We just moved into this school district this summer. Unlike other reviews, we found that school has both before and after school care through Work Family Connections. You don't even need to be registered full time and can use it on as needed basis. The teachers are very friendly, office staff seems friendly as well. The curriculum seems to be a little behind the Cherry Hill school district. Everything that our son learned in K, he is going through now in 1st grade.
We are new to the Lester D. Wilson school but have found the school to be very welcoming. The class sizes are terrific and the teachers are very committed. I feel my child is getting the attention and support she needs to be successful. The school has an awesome garden which the children help to plant and harvest. There is no before care or after care program.
