Not impressed. Principal is never around and the school is a mess. Teachers seem unhappy. My child doesn't even want to go to school but I have no other choice at this point.

eh- i've not been too impressed. the school manages to test out pretty well with eogs, but there are definitely shortcomings. half the staff seem unfriendly and unmotivated, the facilities are cluttered, disorganized and filthy and there is only a small group of parents who seem to run the show without allowing much room for newcomers to contribute. hopefully, the new principal can insist on a higher level of professionalism, cleanliness and more parental involvement from underrepresented populations.

This is my son's first year at Alexander Wilson and he absolutely loves it...We bought a house in the school's district to move from Sylvan Elementary because his grades were suffering horribly. He gets so much more individual attention and his grades have dramatically improved. The teachers were very welcoming. The only thing would recommend is that they have some sort of a buddy system to make the new kids feel more welcome. I watched from the car rider line everyday for a week as my son sat by himself under the slide and not a single person, (student or teacher) spoke to him...This was very troubling for em to watch everyday.
