    Cannot say enough about this school. I have a child with special needs that was able to be in a full inclusion classroom. They were excellet with him. Mrs. DeAngelis was a God send. It's because of her and her amazing staff of teachers that my son is now an honor student in the middle school

    It's a small public school with a family feel while a lot of elementary schools are going big and institutional.

    This school is wonderful! It is not very/ too big. There are over 20 children per class and each one of them gets more than thier share of the attention needed to excel academically as well as emotionally and socially. The staff at Wilbur are dedicated strict caring giving understanding highly educated totally 110% involved etc. I have never seen anything like it! No one is forgotten in this school. Good or bad no one is left behind... not even the parents! This school is an example of what schools everywhere should strive to be!

    I think the school is a good school yet I do think the principal and staff overstep boundaries with what they should be instilling in the children outside of the education of my children. If my children were not good children and needed their guidance then absolutely I think they should get involved but that is not the case and they should know their audience and only intervene when the situation calls for it.

    My child has asperger's syndrome and he wouldn't be where he is today if it weren't for Wilbur School. Each and every teacher he's had has been kind caring and so awesome to work with. Mrs. D'Angelis is the best thing to happen to that school. It's so nice to send my child to school and not have the anxiety of people not understanding him. He is so happy there. I only wish the school went all the way to 12th grade!!
