My daughter recently joined the Wilson family this school during her fourth grade year. I was initially hesitate to move her from a her previous school, where she knew everyone, but when the opportunity presented itself we jumped! I must add that my decision to move her was hard, but it has been by far the greatest educational move thus far. Her teacher, Mrs. Staub, is experienced, compassionate, and a great role-model. In addition to her being a cool and loving teacher, assignments/tasks are rigorous and provide realistic connections/relevance. Her principal, Mr. Heun, is effective and hands-on. He is never too busy to solve a problem or make the kids feel welcomed. My daughter regularly comes home and shares how the environment is fun and better than what she experienced previously. We couldn't be happier and our son, will join the Wilson Beehive family next school year!

My wife and I have three children at Wilson this year and have had nothing but excellent things to say about the staff and curriculum, year after year. We are simply amazed at how every teacher we've encountered has the talent and time to teach our children, and then individually assess their abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. I'm shocked at the review about "blonde haired blue eyed" children receiving preference. Not the school I know. Suggest those parent(s) should look inward instead of pointing fingers?!

My daughter attended Kindergarten at Wilson, and initially I was pleased. As the year went on, however, it became clear that there was great disparity in the quality of the Kindergarten teachers. Amazingly enough, the 'bad' teacher had all the minority children, while the 'good' teacher had all the blonde haired, blue-eyed children. I mentioned this to the School Board and was told it was completely coincidental. Right.

Wilson Elementary school and the Wauwatosa School of Science and Technology are both housed in the same building. This setup is truly amazing. A parent can choose between sending there child to a more traditional school or a more science based school at the same location. Both schools have excellent teachers and administration that will go out of their way to ensure your child s success.

Wilson now has a charter school in it - The Tosa School of Science and Technology. There is the 'regular' school and then the charter school. There is some tension - but overall I think both schools are very good. I would like to see more emphasis on grammar, spelling and traditional math.
