    I have one daughter who just graduated from Wawona and another one just beginning as a 6th grader... and I wish they could stay there through 12th grade. The principal is the BEST THERE IS and the teachers are outstanding. This school truly is one of Fresno's best kept secrets... if parents only knew what they were missing they would be breaking down the doors to get their kids into this school!

    It is a safe school with administration doing there part to keep it so. Students are expected to come to school prepared everyday and ready to learn.

    What an awesome school! With the anticipation of my child attending 'middle' school; both my child and myself have been very pleased with the warming reception and continued attention we still receive. Thanks to all the Wawona staff for their effort and support. Go Wawona Wildcats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love Wawona Middle School because of the level of education children receive attending this school. The teachers have high expectations for our children and make them accountable for their learning. The principal and his staff truly care about each child and the education they receive at Wawona. The teachers are also available to parents and are actively involved with the students for afterschool help as well as fundraising.

    My Daughter has really expanded her thirst for knowledge here in the Wildcat spirit. The teachers are adriot in working with students from a cultural mix and have mastered encouraging individual performance from within what is not the accepted perfect scholastic envirornment.
