I am a former teacher from this school. Many reviewers have commented on the wonderful staff and experiences at WFES and I agree they have remarkable teachers. But wonderful stops there.

We have our two daughters at this school and love it! The principal is extremely involved, knows all the kids and has lunch with them from time to time. The teachers are all outstanding - plan together so everyone in each grade level is doing the same thing. Wonderful experience - love the school!!

Having my son in kindergarten at this school has been the best experience for him. His teacher, Mrs. Uehling, is the most patient, understanding, kind and helpful teacher it has been my pleasure to know. The school has shown exceptional care as it relates to his development.

I've not been impressed by this school. They seem to have not handled budgetary cuts well. My child's teacher seems burned out and overwhelmed by the class size she is handling. There have been a few issues this year she has not handled well, including yelling 'shut up!' several times at the students.

The warm, community atmosphere is evident the moment you walk through the front doors. The administration is by far ...  Read more

The teachers and staff at this school are caring and supportive of all students. This is a school where parent volunteers are welcomed and play a major role in the classroom. The school is clean and up to date. There are many resources for the children to use and up to date technology. I love the blackkboard ...  Read more
