School Reviews

5  
My child began attending WCA in his 5th grade. He recently graduated from high school and works part time and attends SPC. We loved the small group settings for important subjects like reading, writing, math, and spelling. The student folders were helpful as we were able to see how our child was doing each and every day. Our child was diagnosed with mild autism, OCD, and is hearing impaired. We are proud of the school and of our child who overcame many of his issues as the stress and pressure was diminished once we began at WCA. We were extremely happy to volunteer at the school and chaperone any field trip. We tried the public school and Montessori learning environments and it was just too unstructured, overcrowded, and too busy with our child that needed more guidance and support.
