I love Ware School. Other than some parents r rude when it comes to parking, I had no problem with my 3 children attending this school. Teachers r friendly and fair. I like when the class was separated in group levels when it came to english and math hours.

This school focuses on children who are having trouble. They do not help children who are above level. In the end, all they care about is the test scores at the end of the year! The only subjects emphasized in school are Reading and Math (2 hours each) because that is what the test at the end of the ...  Read more
