School Reviews

I am the proud parent of a WCS graduate and a current sophomore. One or more of my children have attended WCS for the past 7 years. WCS provides a friendly, caring, Christ-centered environment. The staff really do care about the welfare of each child...academically, emotionally and spiritually. Open door policies and small student/teacher ratios are a plus!
