    the school maintains an environment of competitiveness among the students.teachers are competent and impart individualized learning to students. hope it will maintain its goal of competing with others. your motto should be ' 2nd to none!'

    The teachers care about teh students and consistently this school is always making the grade in state testing and in education. My only hope is that it remains that way under it's new leadership.

    R N wilentz school is a great school. Our principal's main concern is the safety and the progress of the students. We offer many extra curicular programs to all our students. We have from cooking to math programs. Our intensive tutoring programs help those who are falling behind achieve better.
