This is the best school between others in the johnstown, ebensburg, and altoona, PA areas. The education this school provides is EXCELLENT! There are many things for children and parents to get involved in allowing for children to be very social and make a lot of friends.

We have been with WHES for four years now and have become increasingly unhappy. We recently got a new principal who is still settling in, but he comes from the Middle School and is experienced and well-respected. The teachers are very motivated, some of them stand out for their achievements in truly elevating the students. Although our children are happy and perform very well, we are under the impression that the bar at this school is quite low (compared to other schools and to what students used to know in core subjects at this age). We are disappointed in the music program where we were hoping the children would be taught rhythm and percussion, basic music reading and more than two notes on the recorder. We are disappointed in the art program where the children are not really exposed to three dimensional art, little art history and barely challenged in their fine motor skills. We also wish the librarian was more involved with the children to support good reading habits and guide the kids in their choice of books. We sorely miss a foreign language program and a science room. But: The PTO is absolutely outstanding, teachers are kind, office staff is helpful - they keep us going.
