I have been a parent of WOIS for the past 15 years. My eldest daughter is now in Grad School at John Jay University and my 2nd oldest is a freshman at Oswego ~ all due to the great foundation they received at WOIS. My youngest daughter is now in 8th grade and I am sure that she will also excell... I truly LOVE this school and everything the staff has done for my family... The Teachers are genuinely concerned for the well being of their students which is a PLUS ++ in todays world...KUDOS to #58 Teachers, Staff and Parents!!!!!
WOIS is a school of high expectations. Not only for their staff, but the students and families. Through the outward bound/expeditionary learning philosophy, staff engage students and families in the learning process thus giving them a sense of ownership, responsibility and respect for themselves and others. Learning isn't just about acquiring knowledge, it's about acquiring life skills that will lead us to a better tomorrow!
I love school #58 because it's has great teachers and my son has learned alot since going to #58, his grades are very good A's @ B's and because the school has become a high school and my son will be one of the first to graduate from WOIS #58. It's an awesome school.
This school is an outward bound model of education. Expeditionary learning allows in depth focus on a single topic. Academic challenge for my son. The school is small enough that social support within peer groups are largely successful.
There is not a school that focuses more on learning through experience. The students are as vested in their learning as their teachers are in teaching and preparing their students for life.
I love my school because it is most unique and it was one of the urban schools in the state of New York that won the Blue Ribbon award and the first in Rochester to win this award in 20 years.
it is a very friendly and warm environment and everyone is on the same page. they are very patient but push our kids and families to strive for the best and to do it together
WOIS is The Best Public School in the city of Rochester hands down! If you've lived in Rochester long enough you know what I'm talking about! My family was concerning moving to a "better" school district outside of Rochester until I researched WOIS & my son was excepted into the program.
I am volunteering at the school through work. I am very impressed with how the classes are run and how happy all of the kids are. They are alot of fun to work with and the kids are very eager to learn.
I love school #58 because the students are excited about learning and take pride in their school.
Positive school culture! Great teachers! Integrated subjects! Learn by doing! Field studies! School wide morning meetings! Administration works with teachers and parents! High expectations!
Amazing teachers; motivated kids and a top notch principal make this the place to be if you want your child to love school and do well!
I love this school because it's small, we work hard, and have a great crew of students, teachers, parents, and community support.
Because it's influence is so far reaching and a great benefit to so many.
I graduated from #58 years ago, and still see some of the same staff at the school today! It was a warm, nurturing environment, that kept my mind engaged and focused. I felt safe and secure, and encouraged to succeed. On occasion when I visit the school, I see signs that these qualities still exist there. I have performed and taught at the school and it was evident in those instances as well.
My kindergartner started school here this pass September and so far he has been doing very well.I like the curiculum and the teachers seem very attentive and eager tohelp the children learn.
School 58 sets a good example of how a school should integrate into the community.
They have maintained a high-caliber curriculum and focus on what's important... our children.
As a grandparent of a child attending School 58, I am most impressed at the dedication of the teachers and staff. Our grandson is discovering the joys of learning! Thank you--
