The 2011-2012 year was great. The principal maintained a high level of communication and made an effort to get to know everyone. There is a great atmosphere of everyone pitching in and doing our best. I was excited that the principal had a PhD- I thought maybe the school system was going to set higher standards. It is somewhat disappointing to find that for 2012-2013 this principal has been moved to another school and we have to get to know another. Wilton was a school of distinction last year- why stir things up again?

This is the best school around! The staff and principal are the best and do everything they can to help in any way possible! I love this place!

I have to say this is a phenomenal school! This community benefits from the leadership of a great principal. I'm not sure about some of the other posts that other parents have submitted. Clearly, they are not in tune with the daily activities at this school. The technology at this school is 21st century. The staff and all employees are there for the students. They are the #1 priority. This school rocks!

I've had 3 children in this school for the last two years. I can say that my children have learned and received a great education. I will admit that some teachers are better than others, but that will be anywhere you go. We moved into this school district/zone just for this school. Next year, my oldest will go to middle school and my two youngest will transfer to the new Tar River Elementary School. I just hope that we have the success at the two new locations that we have had with Wilton.

I wrote a glowing review for this school in 2009. We've just finished our last year at Wilton and can hardly wait to leave as we've been transferred to the new school, Tar River Elementary for the 2011-2012 school year. The administration at this school sorely lacks in effective discipline and communication. The principal is not an effective leader for this school.

Wilton is a fabulous school with great teachers and administrators. My daughter goes to this school and I am so thankful. The teachers are kind and caring. The Principal is visible, friendly, and has made tremendous improvements in the appearance of the school.

I hate to be the one downer on this page but I feel it is not being represented fairly. I have had my child here for 3 years now and 2 out of those 3 have not been so great. As with all schools the teacher makes a world of difference and my child has had some good teachers. The cirriculam has been dumbed up recently where it is crazy easy for any normal child. The change in principal this year is terrible and greatly miss the last principal who actually did make it a great school for the 2 short years he was there. I feel like if I don't get my kid out of this little country school she'll never get anywhere in life. It's overcrowded, underfunded, the gym, computer and art classes are awful. The bus rides are over an hour long. I could go on and on.

This is a great school! Don't let the apperance fool you because what's inside is outstanding. The teachers are OUTSTANDING and the PTA is on top of everything. We actually chose not to move out of the area because of the success that we have had at the school with our child. WAY TO GO WILTON!!!!!!

I love this school. The teachers are great and have a vested interest in each of the students there. My son just finished the 2nd grade and is looking forward to 3rd grade. It makes me happy to know that my son loves going to school each day. Thank you for all you do.

I love this school. Not only did I attend this school but now I have a daughter that is in 1st grade. Some of the same teachers are still there. The teachers here love to teach and are wonderful with the students.

I have had two boys that have gone to this school, I can't say enough about how much I love this school. You can tell that the teachers that are at this school love to teach and really love the students. The new principal is also really doing a great job.

I have two daughters at Wilton and I volunteer. The teachers and the parents go way beyond the call of duty. I will be sad when my girls move on to junior high.

I am a teacher assistant at Wilton as well as a grandparent. I am extremely proud of the staff and their dedication to our students and their families. I know of many teachers who deeply care about each of their students and not just academically. Parents are always welcome to visit and attend our many functions outside school hours.

What a wonderful school. The teachers are right on it. Moved here from Fla; and these schools here are well advanced. All activities are wonderful and the teacher conferences are detailed and you always know where your child's education is at all times. A++++

Wilton is a wonderful school! Most all the teachers go beyond to help children with special needs. A lot of the teachers will volunteer their time and stay after school closes to help those who are behind. In my opinion it is a great school, Great teachers and the Principle is one of a kind. I would not have my child anywhere else!
