Wilkinson provides a very unique combination of truly excellent teachers, small class sizes and community support. Our two kids have been really supported there as individuals. The teachers have identified their strengths and challenges (academic and social) and tailored the school experience to fit them best. It really is a hidden gem on the coast.

Wilkinson School has the inclusive community feel and focus on both individual-paced academics and social development that our daughter needs. She thrives in being a part of a caring, yet still challenging environment and that is why we keep her enrolled year after year. We also appreciate the focus on the arts that so many schools have had to cut.
