    "Most of the teachers are uneducated and ill prepared to deal with the challenges of teaching middle school students. The school is large with 400 students per grade, and unless you push hard for a challenging curriculum you could end up being taught that objects don't fall at the same rate because gravity pushes harder on heavier objects (this actually happened and is just plain wrong!). The school is also plagued by bad administration and overall creates a disorderly student body (at no fault of their own!)"

    "Bullying is a serious issue and continues to be through high school. Inane and ineffective programs have been implemented with little result. Principals, teachers and parents too often shrug off physical fights and verbal abuse both of which I've personally witnessed numerous times even at the elementary schools. Academically, the Wilmette public schools are acceptable but not great. Early math programs are especially poor. Wilmette continues to use material that the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics does not endorse anymore. (NCTM's recommendations are often used by schools throughout the nation in choosing curriculum.) In elementary school, my son spent almost an entire year playing Uno instead of learning math because the teacher told us that he knew too much and there was nothing she could do. At that point, we began using the excellent and challenging Singapore Math. Language Arts is not much better. Look elsewhere if education is important to you."
