Both my children attend this school and we have had nothing but wonderful things to say about it. The principal and staff are strong & it boasts some of the best academic scores in the county. The interior building is neat, bright and inviting. Nearly all classrooms have Promethean boards which helps children learn how to use current technology. The PTA is supportive and goes above & beyond to help keep the school climate positive.
My daughter is now if fifth grade at Wildwood and has been at this school since kindergarten. The school has been great and she s been lucky enough to have great teachers over the years most notably in 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th grades. The teachers have always been available when needed and have communicated effectively with me. The principal is very involved and seems to care a lot about the students. My daughter has made many friends here over the years. The PTA also has a strong presence and you can see that during the annual carnival as many people come out and volunteer their time. I ve been happy with this school and I would recommend it.
My son has attended this school for three years. His teachers have been amazing, the PTA is strong and I have had a very positive experience regarding opportunities to volunteer and participate in his classes. The staff and administration is responsive and understanding. Its been a great school for our family.
We moved and this was our base school. My son was so excited to attend and it could not have been a worse experience. So many things are wrong with this school, and his teacher was just plain awful. It became so bad that after 2.5 months, we pulled him out to homeschool. I would not recommend this school to anyone, ever.
How anyoone could give it a rating above 1, are you kdding me? The school is so bad the got rid of the principal and AP. Might get better but I wouldn't put an enemy's kid there. If you went to a school in a slum, then perhaps this MIGHT be an improvement. There are a bunch of good schools in the Wake county, Brassfield, Davis Dr, Highcroft, Green Hope...Stay away for this establishment!
I was very happy this past year w/ the 1st & 3rd grade teachers that my sons had . The love the school and the classes.
My daughter went here for second grade. We've moved several times since she started kindergarten and she usually adjusts/does well but she has done beautifully here. The teachers worked well with her and the principal was hands on. There is a strong PTA and parental involvement/volunteerng is OK but can be improved. Per my daughter, this school was in the middle, they challenged me but I wanted to be challenged a litlle bit more.
My son went to school in Kindergarden and loved it. His teacher was amazing and the staff was wonderful!
This is my first year at Wildwood Forest Elementary. The principal is amazing, she is so friendly , helpful, and knowledgeable. My children's teachers (kind & 2nd grade) have all been exceptional. I love all of the positive attention, I think it is terrific.
My son is in the third grade and has attended this school since kindergarten. We have been very satisfied with his experience there so far. The teachers are wonderful about communicating with parents and show a genuine and personal interest in students. Parent involvement is exceptional - very active and productive PTA. The former principal was a jewel - a real people person and excellent communicator. The new principle, though well recognized and celebrated in education has not been as visible or involved with parents as her predecessor.
Overall this is a terrific school. The teachers are great and the new principal will get the scores up if anyone can!
This school is great. My son has attended since 3rd grade and has shown marked improvements in math and reading skills. The school is very active in community events and the PTA is awesome.
