Welcome

Wildwood School offers rich resources and programs to a multi-ethnic and multi-racial community of 424 students in Kindergarten through grade six. School staff works to help each child become her/his personal best.

Parents are closely involved in the school program through the School Council, PTO and as “valuable volunteers” in the classrooms. Curriculum, instruction and assessment are guided by best practices in education.

Multiculturalism is honored and diversity is celebrated through the daily life in the school, as well as materials chosen, themes studied and festivals held. Students’ heritages span six continents and students and staff speak over 20 languages.

All students participate in art, music and physical education. Instrumental lessons, chorus, band and orchestra are offered to students in grades 3-6.

Special needs students receive a wide variety of services. Technology is an integral part of learning. Students use computers in the technology laboratory, the library and then classrooms.

The five colleges in the Amherst area contribute to education at our school through on-going learning opportunities for the staff and through the support of student interns. Wildwood School is a vibrant learning community where students flourish.

A Word

From Our Superintendent

The mission of our district is to support our talented students in every step of their educational journey, from Pre-K to graduation, and to help them become successful, contributing members of our multicultural society. We challenge students to strive toward the outer edge of their skill level, while still maintaining a whole-child approach that supports their creativity and social skills development. ARPS teachers are experts in their field who are deeply knowledgeable about their content, but their dedication to students is what draws families to our schools.
ARPS students are incredibly academically successful, and we are extremely proud of that success; however, we have just as much pride in our students’ cultural and social growth. ARPS has a very diverse student body, with more than 40 native languages spoken. As a community, we honor all of our students’ heritages with an unwavering commitment to equity and social justice. Those commitments, along with our unique demographics, ensure that ARPS students learn as much from each other as they do from the formal curriculum.
I am honored to serve the ARPS community as we work together to help our students reach their goals and realize their full potential. Welcome to ARPS!

– Dr. Michael Morris
