This school has a fabulous principal who listens to parents and her community. Children are very lucky to have this school in their neighborhood. While the building itself has its challenges, the atmosphere is one where learning is the number one priority.

I DO NOT recommend this school! The teachers break their backs for the kids which is a good thing but the office staff overshadows that with lack of accountability and disregard for the kids mental and emotional well being by minimizing school bullying and not "dealing" with important issues that are crucial to the well being of all students. My daughter is currently in therapy for the 2011/12 school year and is no longer attending this school. I would not recommend this school.

Our family has had such a positive experience at Wilkes! The Principal, teachers, secretaries and staff go above and beyond to make the enviroment educational, safe, supportive, and welcoming. We came from a private school and we are so glad we made the change to public school!

They show true compassion for the kida and allow the children to be involved as much as possible with things like lunch, etc.

My daughter is not learning anything new. She's bored and worst of all there's a bullying problem at her school in which no one seems to be doing anything about it. My daughter is now afraid to go to school.

My son has learning disabilities and everyone at the school has been more than helpful in making his schooling fruitful. He improves right along with his classmates and feels valued as a human being due to the great teaching and counseling styles available at Wilkes.
