I am so grateful for this school. It is a warm loving happy place. The teachers are talented and dedicated and the entire staff takes a real interest in the children's well-being. As a result of the tone set by the teachers staff and administration the atmosphere at Wyoming is one of kindness and respect and although I'm sure it must happen sometimes I have never witnessed a single incident of teasing or bullying among the children who tend to be incredibly generous and supportive of each other. Children in older grades serve as "buddies" and mentors to younger children which increases the feeling of solidarity. The children get art music library and computers once a week and physical education twice a week. The music and gym programs are particularly strong in our experience. Class sizes are small Last year there were 22 students in my daughter's class; this year there are 16. I wish that all children in this country had access to this quality of education and I say a little prayer of thanks for how lucky we are every time I drop my daughter at the door.

We were new to town last year. I heard Millburn NJ had good schools. Not until I experienced them first hand did I realize how good. Last year I had a boy in kindergarten and a girl in 1st. I quickly felt like I had a real partner in my children's education. Wyoming school in general but my kid's teachers in particular were just outstanding. They took a personal interest in dealing with our "newness" to town and all the anxieties that accompany it. They communicated with me so frequently at dismissal by email or by phone that I never felt a special conference was necessary. I also want to commend the specialist teachers such as the librarian art teacher gym teacher etc. And the nurse and office staff are so friendly and supportive. Lastly I also feel the same way about the school Principal. I got to know him under good circumstances early in the school year. He is ever-present and very approachable when the kids are lining up in the morning and always outside at dismissal. No doubt he sets the tone for Wyoming school and after a year under our belt I am sure his leadership is integral in the high quality of Wyoming Elementary School! PS - The PTO is also outstanding!
We recently transferred from NYC public schools (Grades 1 and 3) and noticed a substantial difference in the academic focus. The teachers made the transition for our children smooth and the smaller class sizes have had a positive impact on the learning environment. I agree with another reviewer that the teachers have a real vested interest in the children.
Great school. School is in a terrific neighborhood that is perfect for new families and those looking to start one. Millburn is a top NJ town for schools and Wyoming is no exception.
A wonderful warm friendly school with great faculty. A great academic education with a family atmosphere.
I love Wyoming School because ALL of the teachers genuinely love their students and do everything they can to help them succeed!
My daughter is in kindergarten in this school. I have been so impressed with the amount of knowledge the teacher has and I am very happy with how she informs parents of everything that is going on in the classroom.
