Wonderful school. My two kids attended, and my youngest will be in 5th grade next year. I'll honestly be quite sad when he graduates because I'll miss the dedicated staff, amazing teachers, and thoughtful administrators. They suffered a terrible blow when the funding for Texas schools was cut. They had to let go many teachers and morale suffered a lot. Still a great place but would be so much greater with adequate funding--probably true for all Texas public schools though. The parents of Wilson students tend to be very involved and supportive of each other and the school.
My daughter is in 1st grade of the Dual Language program at Wilson. While she doesn't seem to be absorbing much Spanish, she does love school, and is already reading chapter books independently. Her teachers have all been wonderful, very impressive. She is also in the gifted and talented program, which is fantastic. We moved to this neighborhood primarily so that she could attend this school, and I do not regret that decision.
Wilson Elementary has established a great learning community with a coalition of students, parents, mentors, and staff which allows each child to be successful. We are a Title 1 which serves the needs of all our student population. Our classrooms include iclusion, bilingual,, English as a Second Language learners, gifted studens, and is a melting pot of cultures. All the members of our staff have high academic expectations for our students and as a result we have been in the top 4% of the schools in Texas for two consecutive years.
My three children attended Wilson Elementary and absolutely loved school. Two had perfect attendance and my daughter missed one day. It says alot for the fantastic, motivating teachers. They have grown to be productive adults, two in college to be teachers/coaches and the other still in high school. Thank you Woodrow wilson!
Wilson strives to provide excellence in all academic areas. Teachers really care about the students and want to ensure they have a positive learning environment. Children are encouraged to do their best/ try their hardest and to participate in community activities (learning to be leaders in the community).
Super high expectations for all students while still maintaining a low stress, fun atmosphere.
Wilson is a place where staff and students work together to ensure that learners are successful! It is a blessing to be a part of this amazing place!!!
My kids have been to three different schools in the Denton school district but Woodrow Wilson has been the best by far! Such a caring and community feel to this school. Great teachers and staff!!
Woodrow Wilson Elementary has super bright and caring teachers along with wonderful kids and parents who all adore their school and who all work very hard to make it the wonderful place that it is.
Wilson is the best school in Denton! It has the best administration, teachers, students and parents. There's something special about the kids that go through Wilson Elementary. Just ask the Middle School teachers in town!
Wilson loves kids! The school has many programs to better the learning style of each and every student. We are proud to send out kids there. Go Mustangs!
Wilson has great teachers! We are proud to say that our kids attend Woodrow Wilson Elementary in Denton, Tx.
I have had 2 children already go through Woodrow Wilson and one still attending. I have been thoroughly impressed with each teacher my children have had, as well as the parent involvement. The school is very innovative in their programs. My daughter is involved in their dual language program. Wilson was the first elementary school in our town to have this program. We are very proud Woodrow Wilson parents and appreciate the efforts of the teachers and administrators of the school.
Love the school! Started my daughter out at Sam Houston and did not feel the love from the teachers. Was a bit hesitant starting a new school, but both son and daughter love it and feel loved by their teachers! Great programs, great school! Daughter is in 5th grade now and is able to join all clubs - track, choir, and orchestra! I am impressed!
I disagree with the statement in reference to the special needs children being sent to this school. The Inclusion Program is bridging the gap for those students who are not on grade level. There is also Life Skills classes that assist students with daily living needs. Overall, Wilson is a great school and the staff really care about ALL students.
For the general population it is a good school, especially for gifted children, they will receive a lot of attention. I would not send a special needs child to this school you will be very disappointed
Wow do we miss Wilson! My son was there for two years. There is such a feeling of community in this school, you have to visit to understand. The teachers really care about the students. The PTA is very strong. The Principal is good enough, but beats the heck out of Sam Houston.
This school is great. There is a great community feel to it and you can tell the teachers work hard for the kids because they love it. There is also a dual language program to get excited about
I'm so proud that my child is part of Wilson and is good to know your child is in good hands
