Open Quote Wyman's environment is nurturing and the teachers, for the most part, are both dedicated and competent. Art and music programs (including instrumental performance) are a plus at Wyman. The 'ALAP' advanced learners program, although woefully underfunded, is a gift from heaven. From our experience, student deportment is good. The PTA is active and supports the school with book fairs, field trips, a science night, and other enrichment. The library is adequate but it could use more computer workstations. The downside to Wyman is that a sizable segment of the student body is not as motivated to learn as it should be. At its roots, this problem is a parenting issue, but it does negatively impact the classroom. That said, with a reasonable amount of parental oversight, a child can be expected to flourish at this public school. Wyman Elementary is an asset to our community. 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.
