A big part of our mission at Wildwood Academy is to understand our community and what our families are looking for in a school. An education isn't just about classes and tests, it's about creating a sense of curiosity in students, ensuring they feel part of a community, and truly understanding who they are as individuals.
This year we sent out a blind survey to our entire community asking them what was important for them about the school and their student's experience thus far at Wildwood Academy. The results were very illuminating! We sat down, as a staff, and went over each and every question and the responses so we can further tailor the school to meet the needs and expectations of our families.
