overall probably no better than any other school. Please refer to my comments in question three.

The Principal runs the school in a dictatorial manner. A few teachers agree with that sentiment and are not supportive of his methods. Academically the school is good, thanks to the great teaching staff. A certain administrative staff member requires lessons in manners and cease treating both parents, and more importantly the children, as non entities. Fund raising is important to all schools, but at WCS, the more cash you raise, the better your child will be treated, especially by the Principal. He is so egotistical and considers his fund raising efforts far above the academic and emotional needs of the children. Time for him to retire!

This school needs to make changes to how it deals with children with learning differences. Exclusion, shunning and gossip are serious forms of bullying. Kindness requires acceptance and tolerance.

If you are not donating a ton your child will go unnoticed . My kid missed one day had 2 tardies due to the late bus and she couldn't even get a effort award. There are honor awards and effort awards for the children who make effort to be on time and not miss any days. Mind you this is her first year missing a day. So I can recognize her effort . Apparently they cant.
