We moved here 4 yeas ago; at the end of my daughters first grade year. She will graduate from PWE this summer. There are not enough positive words I can say about how phenomenal the teachers are. Truly amazing. The main downfall of the school is the minority zoning. Majority of low income students speak English as a second language or come in as kindergarteners and don't speak English at all. Although I would put my children's education against any student in Martin county, I can't help but worry that the language is a distraction from all students learning.

I'm very disappointed with this school, I used to have my daughter in a private school and big mistake when I change her to this school 2yrs ago, since then I notice a big change in the level of education and the system they use to teach the kids. I cannot wait to move from here to take her to another school. The system is awful, and now I think I have to pay for tutoring because she is behind compare with other schools. I'm so frustrated traying to help her at home every day. And talking to teachers does not help I think they don't care. I spoke to a couple of my friends they have their kids there and we think the same. So sad. :(
