    Great school! CHildren are very well behaved. Teachers are phenomenal! I love the extracurricular activities they have for the children- student council liter patrol honor society shelf elves etc. The school is also clean and neat. Test scores are comparable to those of schools in the community with similar socioeconomic statistics.

    This is my daughters second year at Wilmer Elementary. She is in the fourth grade. Overall we are pleased with her experience here. Communication between parents and teachers could be improved. The school is exceptionally clean. They have an excellent playground. They have recently added an outdoor classroom which will be nice on the Sunny days. If communication from teachers and on the schools website were improved then I would have no qualms at all.

    Wilmer Elementary has recently been relocated and the new school is really nice with room for growth. My son is in kindergarten and his teacher is really nice and communicates well with me therefore I know what they are working on in the classroom (Math Reading - sight words and sounds Writing Science Poetry including reciting of poems in front of class etc.). Currently the school does not have a playground so the children play in the gym but they are raising funds and plan to start building one soon. I hope this review helps. Really all of the schools that I know of in west Mobile are nice and new or updated.
