School Reviews

Quality starts with the Principal and filters down to the teachers, then down to the ancillary staff and finally the students. It's a real blessing to find a school like this. They care for the whole child. I worry about what happens after Wadsworth. Where can we go where you have trust of a good education and a place that truly cares for (particularly) a child of color? I am sure that white kids would receive the same love as my child with open arms . It's just refreshing that a child of color will be judged by the content of character that might be missing somewhere else. I would welcome this school expanding grades because of the excellence in the fiber of the school, that appears missing in so many other schools. Go Panthers!!!
