My son had his first year as a Wilkie Bear this year, and we have loved our experience! He will be returning next year and I have no doubt that it will be another great year. His teachers are very caring, and the school has a wonderful community feel. They have the latest technology, so I am never worried that he isn't learning a ton. I highly recommend Wilkinson ECC!

When we first toured the school, the staff was very warm and friendly. Most of the teachers there have master's degrees. They have a more positive approach to discipline, too, it seemed. They also appeared to be really following Project Construct, from what we saw in the classrooms. The tour guide, Diane Taylor, told us about the two curriculums, Open Court (which they appear to be phasing out) and Project Construct. When I asked her to explain, she went into one of the preschool rooms and the teacher came over and explained it all pretty articulately and she also said that with preschool they try to make it play oriented because their natural state is play (which goes along with my own personal philosophy). Old, well-kept building with a new playground on a quiet, tucked-away street in Dogtown. Our child has been going to school there now for over a year and is very happy, as our we. The PTO is also very involved and gets things done. Highly recommended St. Louis City Magnet School!
