School Reviews

I love the WVCS family! My daughter feels that this school is her second family. It is a small school, with an amazing family of teachers, students and parents!

I have 2 children at WVCS and not only am I impressed by their academic standards, but the Biblical integration into all that they do. It truly is a family environment throughout all grade levels. I recommend this school to everyone I know from Preschool through 12th grade!

My family has been involved in WVCS for years and when I moved to the area and became familiar with it, I knew I could immediately call it home. I knew my kids would attend here, I knew I wanted to work here, and it has been a HUGE blessing! I get to work with amazing staff and be around great students and families. It is a community and second family. I also feel welcomed, supported and encouraged by the administration and board.
