Wyoming Seminary Lower School Ratings & Reviews
As a parent of an elementary school student, I'm not sure the teachers are focused on the right things at this school. The values seem to be off, with more emphasis on rote memorization than critical thinking and reading skills. And the administrators leave much to be desired as well; parent relations are certainly not a focus. Go public. You'll be glad you did!
We are very happy with the education my daughter is receiving at Wyoming Seminary. She is new to the Sem experience and is in 7th grade. Although she has homework, it is not excessive ( 5 hours a night??no way!). I feel the teachers are very caring and want their students to do well. Since my daughter is new to the school , the teachers have been very communicative me with about her adjustment. Teachers are very responsive ( via email) to any questions/ concerns I have had thus far. My daughter also plays a sport and I feel that the teachers and other students are very supportive. It is not unusual to see teachers ( who don't even have children on the team) at games to support their students. Overall, a very positive experience so far.
It was amazingI went here but left to move to Jamaica
It's ok I guess. The teachers give us a lot of homework though, and they don't deal with bullying or issues well enough. The academics are on par with a public school though, with exceptions for math if you're in the advanced class. There's really no point in going here though if you're not going to to to the Upper School, so just send your kid to a public school and save money.
Hi, I'm a seventh grade student here at the Lower School, and overall, this has probably been the worst school year of my life. Not only are we overloaded with homework (5-6 hours a night sometimes, it's supposed to be 2 hours a night at most), there are some incompetent teachers that really make you question, 'How is this school one of the best in the country?' I've had multiple issues with certain teachers about workloads and due dates, and I'm not the only one, just about half of the grade is fed up with the workload, but also the fact that issues like these never get resolved. The tuition price is already expensive, so if you receive financial aid, get ready to be treated like a pile of dirt. Because of this school, I've stopped playing sports and missed many other activities outside of the school environment. If you're not the 'perfect kid', you're really not wanted at WSLS. The school is also hard on athletes, with the fact that they have to get out of 8th period early to get to away games, and they don't get any leeway on projects, which due dates are sometimes changed MULTIPLE times, really messing up us students' work schedule. I hope I get to go back to public school in eighth grade, as I miss it so.
