Part 1 of 2 Woodrow Wilson is an excellent school. The Principal Mr. Ronald Treanor makes everyone feel welcome and at home; the staff is happy which makes a tremendous difference compared to other schools; because when people go to work happy their work is accountable. I have never heard a complaint about anyone working under this administration or from any of the students or the parents. The Gifted and Talented Program makes this school one of a kind. Not only is Wilson a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School, but in district everyone brags about it! I would like to give special THANKS to Mr. Treanor, Ms. Llanes, Ms. Chapman, and ALL THE TEACHERS AND STAFF for the amazing Education they provide to our children, for the love, patience and dedication. It is because of people like you and the difference you make in a child's life that our future looks brighter. I am a proud mother of two children currently attending Woodrow Wilson, and an alumni from Wilson who is currently in tenth grade, who continues to achieve all her goals at a High School level, all because she had a great foundation and she was encouraged to always reach out for the stars.

Today I took my time to read all these reviews and comments about WWS. People wrote about how great Mr. Treanor and his faculty are; they wrote about how our kids feels being part of this school, and even students wrote their own expressions on how they feel or felt about their education from Woodrow Wilson in today's life. So, why we all work together to keep our kids school open and with its name. This is a Blue Ribbon School and until now All staff are doing a terrific job in our children. Thank you Mr. Treanor and Woodrow Wilson school faculty for caring for the future of this nation.

I was a student at Woodrow Wilson for six years and it was honestly the best education I've had. I am in college now and the strategies I learned at Wilson are still helpful today. There are a number of excellent teachers, each one of them involved in the progress of each student. The principal, forget it, anyone I speak to who knows about Wilson, knows about how wonderful he is. He knows each student by name and gives them each the respect they deserve. He has created a wonderful environment filled with challenging and exciting academic programs. The arts is mixed with the academics and students remember what the learned because they have so much fun. Overall it is an AMAZING school and the day this school closes will be a very sad day for Union City.

I began going to Woodrow Wilson when I was in the 1st grade and I am now in the 8th grade. Over my years, this school has provided me with a great education although the work may be difficult. We take vigorous courses and learn more than the other students in other schools do. Also, in Wilson we have many arts programs. Every year the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th graders have an opera. We also have a big play in which the whole school somehow participates. I have done all of the things I have mentioned and had fun. Woodrow Wilson is a great school and I would reccomend it to anyone who wants to further their education and is dedicated.

I love this school because they work for the kids potential, they have a wonderful and very professional principal , Mr. Treanor. Their teachers are excellent educators. They give all they know and have 200 % to their students. Their curriculum is over the top. The MIADS curriculum is wonderful. They are the only ones around the area that teach guitar, trumpet, dancing, broadcasting, and acting. Their students are high achievers and they are well prepared to face high school and college expectations. I am very grateful to the Woodrow Wilson School "family" for educating my daughter and son. My children are well prepared as students and as human beings ready to give the best of themselves in society. Thank you Woodrow Wilson .

I am a Proud Aunt of one of the current students of Woodrow Wilson! I remember going to school, and I never saw so many happy children entering school at eight in the morning.

My nephew for one as truly benefited from the excellent, spectacular teachers and consistent, hard work of the administration.

With a student population of 300 kids from 1st through 8th grade, Woodrow Wilson Elementary School has a student/teacher ration of 15 to 1, and a principal who knows every child by name. While our school is in an New Jersey Abbott District (defined as low socio-economic level and struggling scholastically), Woodrow Wilson has consistently scored on state math and language arts testing as not only among the highest in the district, but also one of the highest in the state. It is one of the US Department of Education's 250 official Star Schools throughout the country, and is also designated as a Blue Ribbon School. Most important, our school is dedicated to an arts-integrated curriculum where music, dance, visual arts, theatre and other fine arts are used as a vivid and vibrant means to teach science, social studies, math, language arts, history and other non-arts subjects. Every child feels inspired, important and appreciated, and our teachers and administration are the most caring and committed you can find anywhere. Woodrow Wilson Wrocks!

When I went to this school, I felt so included and I felt like I was being treated as a very important individual. From the time you start to the time you get out, there is so much you have learned, and discovered. I have never seen such a great school. I was even chosen Blue Ribbon. I have heard, and it seems pretty true, that once you finish 8th grade in this school, you are almost prepared for college. Teachers, parents, faculty and staff made this school for me and my pupils a very pleasant and great experience!

Woodrow Wilson is one of the best school around. With helpful teachers, a great environment, kids enjoy the time they spend there. Also, one thing that is very unique to the school is the many different activities and projects that the students are able to do; all of the activities and projects providing a different and creative aspect to them. If you really want your child their minds, I believe that this is a school that will definetly give you just that. Various learning experiences will enrich and enhance your child's mind.

As a present student a woodrow Wilson school, I am tempted to say that it is an amazing school. Mr. Treanor, the school principal is an amazing role model to the rest of the students and myself. The education is amazing and many hands on activities allow the students to have a great time as well as learning. The staff is 5 star, because the are very nice and give hard work. I have been in the school since the second grade and I am now in seventh grade. My sister is also enrolled in the school and she loves it as well. Keep it up Mr. Treanor, because your doing an awsome job! - Vivienne M. :-)

Woodrow Wilson is an Arts Integrated Star School for children with special talents or academically gifted. As a parent with two daughters attending this school, one in 7th grade, one in first, I have to say that this is the best program in Union City. I believe all schools, not only in Union City but nation wide should be like Woodrow Wilson. The principal, Mr. Treanor is excellent, there are over 350 students in this school and he knows all of the by name, including the parents. The teachers are in my book rated number 1 teachers. They are all very talented, thoughtful and great with the kids. The school also offers many plays and miad classes for the children so that they can further enhance there talents. Their programs are all integrated, so if they are learning about Native Americans in language arts it is followed through into math, science, etc. I can honestly say, that I am very pleased with this school, the principal, the teachers and also the students, they are all very talented and gifted and they have a great advantage towards a better future do to their experiences at Woodrow Wilson. Hooray for Woodrow Wilson!
