    Wonderful school! My daughter has attended since K and is in 6th grade now. Academically a great school. There is a good amount of diversity and from what I can tell they do a good job with bully prevention and nipping drama in the bud before it becomes a problem. The teachers are wonderful accommodating and from my experience they genuinely care about the kids and love teaching. Of particular note the teachers I know that I think are exceptional are Mrs. Trigg (Mauer) (spelling I am not sure of) Mrs. Romeo Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Watkins. Dr. Cordova (4th grade) is very wonderful also! The band director Mr. Alexis is great as well he loves music and that love for music rubs off on the kids- he loves teaching them and my daughter has really enjoyed it. In addition the new principal Mrs. Lesher is just great! She knows so many if not most of the kids by name. The kids love her and relate well to her.

    Most of the teachers in this school are excellent! If you're lucky your child will have a chance to be taught by Ms. Barr Mrs. McCulloch Mr. Smith Mrs. Malley or Mrs. Davis all of whom have a lot of experience and common sense. Mr. Furbee the gym teacher is excellent kids love him. Mr. Alexis the band teacher is OUTSTANDING you'll never find a teacher so excited about music! He can encourage even the most reluctant musician. The other teachers are pretty good too those names will just be the ones you hear when you want to know the BEST teachers are. You will want to avoid at all costs Mrs. Amory Marlow. She is unprofessional uncooperative and disrespectful to parents & children. We were unfortunate enough to have two of our children stuck with her for a year it was a nightmare. She has no concept of what is appropriate subject matter in books or movies she will expose your children to. She also makes racists comments and when called on it she will say "I do not censor myself" (these are 3rd graders being taught the "N" word in a very multicultural school). The former principal Mrs. Reeder was top-notch. The current principal seems responsive so we'll see.

    When my children attended here we had nothing but problems regarding bullying that was not taken seriously. And teachers and staff members speaking out of line. My youngest did not feel safe in this environment. It reminded me alot of Columbus public schools. And to make matters worse I could not believe the arrogance they showed in expressing that they knew better than the parent what was best for the child.

    Wilson Hill staff is very understanding and accomodating to their students and parents. The Principal takes the time to discuss with parents any issues thoughts on how to better educate your child and really cares about how each student is doing no matter what the pressing issues are. This school has a large number of nationalities attending it (last count was around 15 or 20) so the degrees in which the faculty goes to to make each student succeed is terrific.

    I can't be more pleased with this school. My son has been attending for only a short time and he has gone from a C to an A in Math Science and Social Studies. The staff and students are kind and welcoming. I'm so blessed that my son has the opportunity to go to such a wonderful school.
