I have three children attending WWCS, all in different classes. This school is fantasic. My children are always looking forward to going to class each day. Which as a parent helps so much. Being able to send my children to a school that I wish I had as a child growing up, We would highly recommend this school. I hope that the state has reconized the dedication the Staff and Principal have for this outstanding enviroment, in which children are surrounded by positive reinforcement in there daily school elements. I recommend this school. The staff care about our children and make learning enjoyable at the same time. Thank you for this charter school, its the best option.
