Open Quote Wadsworth Magnet School is an excellent school. The staff really cares about the students. They really push the students to the limit and require them work hard. My daughter has been in private, Christian schools from kindergarden to the 5th grade. This is her first year at a public school. It is a big adjustment for her but she is adjusting well with the help of the great staff at Wadsworth. Close Quote

Open Quote Wadsworth is by far dekalbs best kept secret. If I had my way they would have let it go to 8th grade and my daughter would still be there. The learning enviroment is truly awesome and we truly miss our daughter being there and she misses it to. Close Quote

Open Quote Wadsworth is an excellent school! My son transferred there from a private school, and I could not have asked for a better transition. The administration has high standards for the students both academically and behaviorally, and the students are eager to rise to the expected levels of performance. The work is challenging, which is to be expected from a magnet program, and the teachers are always happy to assist the students as needed. The students are friendly, and are always helpful to each other when needed. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
