School Reviews

I have 2 WMS graduates and they have excelled in their post-WMS schooling thanks to the high level academics and support for great life skills. They are both self-driven, super curious and seek to understand thanks to WMS. My oldest now in high school, is appreciated by his teachers because they enjoy having him in their classes - teachers have said that he raises the learning level in the whole class and inspires other students through his enthusiasm, participation and knowledge. And my kids ENJOYED their childhood thanks to the super joyful environment at WMS and the lack of pressure from school - my kids were encouraged to develop their own drive to succeed.
