All 3 of my children attended Wildwood. The low review from a parent is an isolated incident I think, b/c everyone in the neighborhood loves Wildwood. I highly recommend it.

One of my children who attended this school is today an honors IB student at a CPS high school. My second child's ISATs show a ranking among the top 5% ...  Read more
