    Part 1 of 2 Woodrow Wilson is an excellent school. The Principal Mr. Ronald Treanor makes everyone feel welcome and at home; the staff is happy which makes a tremendous difference compared to other schools; because when people go to work happy their work is accountable. I have never heard a complaint about anyone working under this administration or from any of the students or the parents. The Gifted and Talented Program makes this school one of a kind. Not only is Wilson a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School but in district everyone brags about it! I would like to give special THANKS to Mr. Treanor Ms. Llanes Ms. Chapman and ALL THE TEACHERS AND STAFF for the amazing Education they provide to our children for the love patience and dedication. It is because of people like you and the difference you make in a child's life that our future looks brighter. I am a proud mother of two children currently attending Woodrow Wilson and an alumni from Wilson who is currently in tenth grade who continues to achieve all her goals at a High School level all because she had a great foundation and she was encouraged to always reach out for the stars.

    Today I took my time to read all these reviews and comments about WWS. People wrote about how great Mr. Treanor and his faculty are; they wrote about how our kids feels being part of this school and even students wrote their own expressions on how they feel or felt about their education from Woodrow Wilson in today's life. So why we all work together to keep our kids school open and with its name. This is a Blue Ribbon School and until now All staff are doing a terrific job in our children. Thank you Mr. Treanor and Woodrow Wilson school faculty for caring for the future of this nation.

    I was a student at Woodrow Wilson for six years and it was honestly the best education I've had. I am in college now and the strategies I learned at Wilson are still helpful today. There are a number of excellent teachers each one of them involved in the progress of each student. The principal forget it anyone I speak to who knows about Wilson knows about how wonderful he is. He knows each student by name and gives them each the respect they deserve. He has created a wonderful environment filled with challenging and exciting academic programs. The arts is mixed with the academics and students remember what the learned because they have so much fun. Overall it is an AMAZING school and the day this school closes will be a very sad day for Union City.

    I began going to Woodrow Wilson when I was in the 1st grade and I am now in the 8th grade. Over my years this school has provided me with a great education although the work may be difficult. We take vigorous courses and learn more than the other students in other schools do. Also in Wilson we have many arts programs. Every year the 1st 2nd 3rd and 5th graders have an opera. We also have a big play in which the whole school somehow participates. I have done all of the things I have mentioned and had fun. Woodrow Wilson is a great school and I would reccomend it to anyone who wants to further their education and is dedicated.

    What I love about this school is that all the teachers motivate the students to keep advancing. That students find their iner talent and the teachers support their dreams. I like that the Mr.Treanor runs the school. He is very friendly with not only the students but the parents also very respectful and strict at the same time. The teachers have a lot of communication with the parents and the children.

    I love this school because they work for the kids potential they have a wonderful and very professional principal Mr. Treanor. Their teachers are excellent educators. They give all they know and have 200 % to their students. Their curriculum is over the top. The MIADS curriculum is wonderful. They are the only ones around the area that teach guitar trumpet dancing broadcasting and acting. Their students are high achievers and they are well prepared to face high school and college expectations. I am very grateful to the Woodrow Wilson School "family" for educating my daughter and son. My children are well prepared as students and as human beings ready to give the best of themselves in society. Thank you Woodrow Wilson .
