I am a new 6th grader at Wilder. It has a great opportunity for gifted 6th graders. The program I attend is called GYSA. I have made many friends in less than 5 whole weeks.

I am a PROUD parent of a seventh grade student at Wilder Middle School. I would like to say that since entering the 6th grade a WMS my son has had a great experience with faculty, staff and students alike. I want to say that the teachers, support staff and the administration work hard to give the students what they deserve in a good education and a safe enviroment. They work hard daily to changing the negative image and the negative publicity that it sometimes receive. By no means am I saying that Wilder Middle School is "perfect", however, what I am saying is that it is a school taking great strides to a positive future for the students currently attending and the students to come!!!!!!
