The student body is very small with approximately 50-70 students in total. The atmosphere is relaxed and supportive. The children are supportive of one another too. The students from all grades will play together and make friends with each other. Each student that is at Wildwood is there because of an academic challenge so each child knows they are not alone. It's perfectly normal and comfortable for a student in grade 6 to be in a math group with someone from grade 5 and two more kids from grade 8. I also see that they build compassion and empathy for each other. Instead of describing another student in their class as 'stupid' or 'terrible' my daughter and her friends will say things like 'he has trouble controlling how he acts'.
