5.0 Stars   01/31/13
Our experience has been very positive with WWS. The faculty show a great deal of care for the students as people but also with respect to their progress with the curriculum. They have wonderful parent education opportunities. Additionally, the school does an exceptional job of addressing issues that rise to the surface. It is a great choice of school!
