    My son is currently a student at Wilmington and I was also a student here. This is nice school and pretty small so everyone knows everyone. Most of the teachers are wonderful. There are wonderful sports facilities and very much parent involvement. Though along with a small town school comes small town people who want want to know all about everyone. If you can handle this New Wilmington is a very nice place to raise a family.
