Wildwood Elementary is an early childhood, kindergarten, grade 1, and grade 2 elementary school serving the communities of Dellwood, Grant, Hugo, Lake Elmo, Mahtomedi, Oakdale, Pine Springs, White Bear Lake, and Willernie.

Wildwood Elementary has an enrollment of approximately 590 students in grades K-2. We have 8-9 sections at each grade level with 21-26 students in each section. Teachers and staff are committed to the delivery of a quality curriculum in a safe, nurturing environment.

Our kindergarten program consists of nine sections with full-day, every day programming. Our preschool program consists of both full-day and half-day experiences with two-day, three-day, and five-day options.

In addition to a strong curriculum in math, language arts, social studies, and science, our K-2 program provides enriching experiences in science, art, music, physical education, and media/computer skills.

Our educational program is designed to help students reach their academic potential while at the same time help them develop their skills to be outstanding citizens in our community.  Our teachers are versed in the latest educational practices including the use of SMART Boards, assessment data to guide instruction, and differentiated instruction to enhance the learning of all students.

We provide a safe and caring school where each child is valued for the person he/she is and the contributions he/she brings to Wildwood. We have implemented a school-wide respectful behavior program known as Responsive Classroom to teach our students the importance of respecting others and proper behavior.

We also encourage parent involvement and support in the school life of their children. Our hope and vision is to develop a strong partnership between the school and family so we can work together in helping the children develop their skills to their fullest potential. Parents are encouraged to visit classrooms, talk with teachers, volunteer services, and attend conferences. We also have an active PTO group that meets regularly that gives parents the opportunity to become involved in many different aspects of our school. Parents are always welcome at Wildwood Elementary School.

Our School
At Wildwood Elementary School, we honor the whole child and teach future-ready skills of inspiring curiosity, embracing change, and turning ideas into action. Our talented teachers and staff members work with students in small class sizes and nurture a culture of excellence that has become the expectation and norm. Our students learn social-emotional skills alongside academic core areas in order to gain the foundation for academic success. In addition, they have the opportunity to engage in learning with specialists in gym, art, media, music, and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) classes. Our elementary school is surrounded by green space and our students enjoy recess at our natural playground and attend classes in our outdoor classroom. We have an engaged and supportive parent community who volunteers and supports the school with academic opportunities and tools. Our District is a leader in engineering and science and we value academic areas that will spark curiosity, fuel creativity, and instill a lifelong passion for innovation in our students.
