My family has been involved with WCA since its beginning 12?13? years ago, and in this upcoming school year, 2 of our daughters will still be in attendance. I love the Core Knowledge (NOT Common Core!) curriculum, and have been amazed at how far ahead my children have been compared to good students who attended other schools. Classes are small enough to support individual help and a closeness among students, but large enough to give plenty of opportunities. The new principal has restored a sense of discipline, which might have been lacking during some of the previous years. In addition, one daughter was an ESL student, who came to the US as an 8 year old. She received wonderful individualized help, and by the time of her 8th grade graduation, she was one of the top students in her class. The work is difficult, and much is expected of students, but the staff is caring and works with kids for success.

I feel like I need to set the record straight as the WCA staff member in charge of the talent show (for 6 years). The theme of this year's show "The Golden Teeples" was entirely student generated. It was a play on the oscars/golden globes and our principal was open and light-hearted enough to let our student emcees go with this really fun idea. It is unfair to judge her without a full understanding of how the theme came to be. Further, we've had a lot of positive feedback regarding the theme and Mrs. Teeples role in the talent show night. I am writing b.c I think it important for those considering our school to read accurate reviews. Thank you. - Erica Koehler, WCA School Counselor and WCA Parent.

WCA provides excellent hands learning experience to actively engage all students. The principal and staff create a positive and engaging culture for students and staff. The teachers are empowered to utilize positive classroom management techniques

The new principal is horrible, very hands off and leaves discipline to teachers instead of taking care of it herself. I was appalled when the kids go "Golden Teeples" certificates at the Talent Show. A lot of hard work goes into this by teachers and staff. The Talent show started way before she arrived, why did she have to do that? I will be leaving the school next year with my kids, not the same. Very dis-satisfied.

Our daughter struggled in the past. She has attended WCA for two years. Since she's been at this school, she has made a drastic improvement. The teachers spend the necessary time to help her learn the things she struggles with so she doesn't get behind. She gets the extra help that she needs. The Core Knowledge Curriculum is awesome! The kids learn so much! We absolutely LOVE that they teach Spanish to the kids and they don't have to wait until high school to learn. We are so incredibly grateful for everything that this school offers and provides! We are hoping that a WCA High School will be coming soon!!!

When the two old principals were fired I saw a huge change in WCA. It's lost it's family feel. Students are being pulled left and right and the school is crashing and burning because of the board: Dishonest and untrustworthy. I love WCA and support the staff and students but I can not and will not ever back the board. They're killing the school. Our family is now completely uninvolved in charter but we have neighbors and friends talking about how down hill the school has gone. It hurts so much to know a once great school has so drastically declined.

I love this school and don't understand the negative posts at all. The new principal is doing a wonderful job. She has plenty of experience and has shown herself to be professional and extremely able. Sure she has made a few changes but none that are negatively impacting our kids. I don't believe the school is at all financially unsound--ridiculous! In fact my daughter told me her class is expecting a new student this month and for those who've left, new students have filled the spots. I wanted to express that academically, this school is challenging. No doubt they are getting an incredible learning experience. But beyond that, as a parent we had a bully situation that was completely handled with a sense of emergency. I love that I know my kids are taken care of and that the teachers don't brush bullying situations under the rug. Please take the negative reviews with a grain of salt. There are some bitter folks with an agenda to see the school get a bad reputation. Hopefully they can move on now that they've left. I hope they find what they need and they leave the negativity behind.

WCA has been an amazing atmosphere for both my kids. We've had wonderful teachers who put all their efforts in my kids' learning. The Core Knowledge curriculum is first-rate. I love the uniform policy as it makes the mornings so easy. WCA offers many challenging opportunities. Some parents complain about sports but WCA does offer soccer, basketball,track and what it doesn't offer, your child can still opt in and participate and compete elsewhere.

Please note, the reviewer that gave the school 1 star and said the new principal for next year has never had principal or asst principal experience is WRONG! She is CURRENTLY an asst principal and has had multiple years of experience. The board is a great board and has done a great job for our school. They have only WCA's best interest in mind.

I have been a parent at WCA since it began almost 12 years ago. I have seen the school work through some tough situations and come out better for it. Through it all I have stuck with this school because: 1) A parent run board. 2) The organization of the current curriculum, and being a part of it as a parent. 3) Excellent teachers that have helped my children learn, enjoy learning and excel in their education. 4) A safe place where children are disciplined to be their best. The negative responses here are a bit surprising, I'm guessing they have an agenda that has nothing to do with academics. My children who have graduated (3 so far) have been very well prepared for high school and go on to take advanced classes and have received academic honors every semester. Parents will always be the primary stakeholders in the upbringing and education of their children. Schools can help that along, but if you expect them to do everything, you're going to be disappointed -- and post a 1 star rant for every school to which you send them.

I am THRILLED with the new Principal selection. It was a VERY rigorous process involving input from the Board, parents, and teachers. And the BEST person was chosen. I am hopeful that with a change in Administration, this school will be even better than before (the prior principals were kind of the weak link). This is the beauty of a Charter School - it is parent driven, and parents made appropriate changes in administration. I think this will turn the school around. Maybe the sour grapes will leave, so the new principal can hire some new teachers.

I have attented the board meetings and feel that this board is dedicated to making WCA the best it can be. I have not had any problems with this school in anyway and believe that administrative change can be good. The board is very open to feedback and highly encourages parents to attend the meetings. My kids have been at WCA for four years and we love it!

Since our son had been homeschooled since Kindergarten, my husband and I wanted him to continue to get a quality education in a caring, safe, and fun environment. I looked around the area at all the schools and decided that the Windsor Charter Academy (WCA) was the right school for us. We had heard great things from several friends who currently have children that attend WCA or that have attended in the past. We were also impressed with the Core Knowledge curriculum, the small class sizes, the uniforms, and the character training. Julie Claeys, the WCA Middle School Principal, as well as our son's teachers, have worked with him, and us, from the beginning to ensure that the transition from homeschool to middle school would be a smooth one - and it has been! They have been available to answer any questions that we have and have been nothing but fabulous! In fact all of the WCA staff has been AMAZING and we are so happy that we made the decision to enroll our son there! We feel confident that in three years, he will be ready to move on to high school with flying colors!!

We are entering our ninth year at WCA and have been very happy with both our daughters' education. We chose WCA because of the dress code and small classes. As parents of an 8th grader and a 4th grader, we are very active in what goes on at school and are very happy with both principals. Their dedication to ALL the students and hard work make WCA a challenging school of choice. We are confident when our 8th grader graduates from WCA in May, her Core Knowledge Education will serve her well at Windsor High.

I am so proud to have my child attending WCA! The rigorous curriculum has helped my daughter show her true potential. All of the teachers are very caring and are willing to take the time to answer any questions we have. The new math curriculum has proven to be challenging for the higher grades, as expected for a new program, but in lower elementary the kids seem to be doing very well. My daughter is mastering the math basics that many other students lack. I know that the solid foundation my child is getting in each subject will provide her with the skills needed to excel in high school and college. I am VERY happy with the education my child is receiving! It is hurtful to me and my family to see discouraged parents try to destroy something so special. I am looking forward to another wonderful school year at WCA!

Along with half of the middle school, I pulled my child out and am now better off in public school. Bad principal, terrible Board (will some normal parents without agendas PLEASE run), less and less emphasis on Core Knowlege curriculum, more teaching to the test. Some of the positive posts are clearly by either a)uninformed parents or b)School Board plants because people are leaving this school in droves. I'm not a big believer in following standarized tests, but look at the WCA CSAP scores..... declining. My child was not even learning the basics in math or English. Discipline is TERRIBLE - belittle the good kids, but don't address the big problems, or problem kids. Social Engineering abounds.....busy bodies teaching kids about relationships, their idea of family structure, undermining parents and lessons taught at home. School Board has one or two aggressive people with agendas - they don't listen to parents. I could go on and on all day. Do NOT go to this school unless they completely revamp administration and school board. There is an election this month - maybe some good people will run.

I agree with the previous review. Bad Board and bad Principal. Most of the teachers do not encourage children to ask questions, and when they do ask questions the answer is "not now". Children are not being helped to develop thinking skills. Instead WCA teaches the children to the test, how to pass them. In our opinion this is cheating and will not help the children later on in real life. That's why we transfer our children to a public school that we are happy with.

I can not say enough positive things about WCA. I have three children attending this school and the changes I've witnessed in them have been amazing! The teachers and staff are very involved in the progress of each child that attends. They have gone out of their way to help my children succeed and they do it with compassion and sterness. They are teaching my children to be accountable for their actions which is exactly what I feel is very important for kids to understand- escpecially these days! I truly believe in their motto, "Failure Leads to Success," and to always keep trying-never give up.Some parents may feel that the leadership is to strict here but I ask you, have seen the kids nowadays? Many of them are very disrespectful! I don't want my kids to be this way to the community. So I am very pleased with the way they correct my children when needed and they ALWAYS include me when there is an issue. They do what it takes to help my children achieve their goals. This has been proven to me in their grades and in their behavior. This school and its teachers and staff are a blessing to my family and I and for this I thank you WCA leadership and staff. Keep up the AWESOME work!

We have 2 children in the elementary school, who were both enrolled in Kindergarten. We are extremely pleased with their educational experiences. My husband and I both have advanced graduate degrees and our standards are therefore high. While no school will be perfect, we have found the school (both the teachers and the administration) to be partners in making our children's educational experience a positive one. I am puzzled by the negative comments here. However, like most things in life, you get out of it what you put into it. If you are expecting a school and it's administration to do ALL of the work for your child AND for you, then you will be disappointed wherever you go. However, if you become involved and engaged in your child's education, you will be more than pleased with WCA. We are.

This is my daughters second year attending. We were thrilled when she was admitted, but have been disappointed ever since. They spend more time testing than teaching and do not challenge the kids at all. My daughter came in mid kindergarten and has begged me all through first grade to put her back in a school like she previously attended. They treat the children like robots and teach to the tests which is probably why the test scores are as high as they are. My daughter is in first grade and is still doing preschool math. The reading curriculum isn't much better. The only math and reading she has learned this year is from what we teach her at home. The one positive thing I have to say is they have an excellent science program. I will be sad to leave that behind, but we will be looking for a new school for her to attend next year. They say they have a no bullying policy, but I have witnessed bullying first hand while volunteering and nothing was done about it. The kids are very clicky and my daughter has felt like an outsider the entire time she has attended even though she has made friends. Also, they give tons of candy and treats to the children.

Outstanding school and leadership, always willing to listen, great interaction with the students and adults, recently toured another charter school in the area, Windsor Charter is well ahead of this school with the same academic program.

The teachers at WCA are fabulous. I have served on several hiring committees. While charter schools might not need to hire only licensed teachers, WCA does. I have multiple children in this school, and there has never been one single day when I didn't feel like they were in good hands. These teachers are some of the mose dedicated, professional, caring people you will find anywhere. They are highly-qualified, participate in on-going professional development and bring world-class education to our children. They care deeply about the success and well-being of each child in their care. Even the smalles issues are dealt with quickly and compassionately. The childrens' safety, security and emotional health are taken seriously here. It is unfortunate that in the era of school choice, it frequently degenerates into a competition among parents who want "bragging rights" about their child's school. We have many fine schools in Windsor, each with its own unique "personality." WCA is a better fit for my children. This is not a condemnation of other schools, they are simply different. We are fortunate to have the ability to make that choice. For us that choice is WCA.

Windsor residents are fortunate to have many excellent schools to choose from. In my opinion, WCA is among the best. Our 2nd-grader is excelling academically, she is engaged and enthused about her education, she has made close friends, and her teachers have been absolutely stellar. I can't imagine our family having a better experience. WCA's leadership (Principal, Administrators & Board) is world-class. The leaders foster a safe, secure, and respectful culture. As a direct result, WCA students learn to excel academically while also building essential character values (i.e. "respect for self, others, property, and learning"). We chose WCA because of the dedicated, intelligent, and caring people we met there. Each teacher and administrator we spoke with, starting with the Principal, was able to articulate a clear, consistent vision: provide students with the skills, support, & resources they need to realize a superior academic and character education. The Core Knowledge curriculum (and yes, Singapore Math too!) fully supports that vision and is extremely effective. The school truly lives up to its vision. We couldn't be happier with WCA and we would highly recommend it to others.

WCA used to be a great school. Few years ago the original Principal went to WY to open a new Charter school. The new Principal who took her place together with the Board are trying to "reinvent the wheel".The quality of the teaching went down, they brought in the Singapore math, method which is suitable for Singapore where people speak so many languages.One thing that is always associated with Charter schools is that parents work a lot with their children, thus high scores.In any case Singapore math is a huge drawback, reason why we took our children to a Public school. Now we are very happy with the whole school situation. We also found that Public schools unlike Charter schools hire only Certified teachers. Do not get sucked into the Lottery thing. By the time the kids reach 5th-6th grade they do not want to stay there.

WCA has been a great school for our daughter who just started 2nd grade. Besides our own personal experience, I have two nephews and a niece who all attended WCA and they had very positive experiences as well. I have been fortunate to be able to help as a volunteer in many ways at the school, getting to see first-hand the teachers in action as well as the school board, the principals, other parents, etc. My daughter's teachers have been excellent in terms of creativity, classroom management, and I think a real love of teaching. I have also been pleased with the breadth of "specials" offered including Technology, Spanish, Library, Music, Art & PE. My 2nd grader loves WCA and told me the other day that she wishes the school went through 12th grade so that she wouldn't have to go to another school someday. I'm sure her feelings will change over time, but I think that speaks well for her current experience. We also enjoy the Science Matters program offered after school hours throughout the school year. Uniforms - LOVE them! If you are school shopping in the Windsor area, be sure to check out WCA.

I am starting my fourth year at WCA. All around we are happy to be here. It has the high standards of a private school but in a public school. The leadership is outstanding and very open to any concerns or suggestions we have had. We love the volunteering opportunities as it keeps us as parents involved in our childrens education. A school cam only be great if the parents reinforce the teachings at home. So if you are not willing to be involved with your children's education then go somewhere else. If you are involved then this is the school for you. The best thng you can do is tour the school and see if it fits your family. It is fabulous for us as we are very involved and feel strongly with uniforms. The school is secure and locked and only those that have filled out a background check form can come in. All the teachers are open to help from parents and love teaching.One bad thing we are lower in funding than the rest of the district so little things like maintaining up to date technology and maintaining electronics is harder. Most kids here are a year ahead of their peers that are in "regular" public school. Check and see if it fits your family. We wouldn't be anywhere else.

Windsor Charter Academy is the best choice we could have made for our child. The staff is dedicated and competent and very open to parent involvement. If you want to be an active participant in your child's education, this is the school for you. The core knowledge curriculm and new adoption of a Singapore math program and after school science camps are all examples of the school's effort to adopt a challenging curriculum that will serve our students well and make them more than highschool ready by the time they finish the 8th grade. Uniforms and an excellent character education program round the school out to show kids how to be good citizens and help them learn skills they will need their entire life and keep them focused on what is important, their education!

Jeez, I guess if you don't cater to all the gifted children or maybe I should put that correctly, the parents of gifted children then you aren't a good school. And imagine that, people in our society with tattoos, what will these children ever do when they are out from under the shelter of their parent and they see somebody on the street with a tattoo. All I can say is WCA is an awesome school with the best and most involved teachers and staff I have ever seen at a school and I am proud to have my child going there. I also enjoy volunteering at the school and going on field trips with my child. There is only so much you can do with limited resources and if as a parent you don't like it then there are plenty of private schools and mega-churches you can take your gifted child to so they can get "special attention". And for the record I have three tattoos, so look out !

Once they got a new principal, the school really went downhill. Teachers are still great, overall. Principal is inexperienced and does not lead well. Very poor choice considering the many experienced applicants they had for this position when it opened three years ago. Plusses: Great curriculum, teachers who care, uniforms, structured, fun activities that go along with the curriculum, after school programs are good considering how small a school it is. Minuses: Too much focus on CSAP, not enough "hands on" time and too much focus on homework for most teachers (though some balance this well) Unprofessional leadership is the biggest downfall of the school and unfortunately, this affects almost everything. I would highly recommend this school under the previous leadership, but I cannot in good conscience do so now. I truely hope this does not last and things start looking up for WCA. One last note: my kids really liked it until the last year they were there and a very minor incident turned into a huge fiasco. This incident lost all my trust for the principal in seeing the principal was looking out for the teachers and not the kids. Very sad.

Sadness for a school that families were once loyal to and excited about. We have been at WCA for two years and are questioning whether or not to return. Leadership the last two years was severely lacking and I am afraid that next year will be worse. The idea that a charter school flourishes due, in part, to the participation of the parents has been seriously brought into questions. Personal agendas and weak leadership have lead to bitterness, gossip, and derision. The music program is practically non- existent at the elementary level. If music is important to you- this school will not provide an opportunity for your child. A great disappointment to us. I have liked most of our teachers and I feel that the teacher makes all the difference. We like the Core Knowledge curriculum- it has proven to be a far better fit for our kids. As a parent, I love the dress code- saves a lot of headaches in the mornings!

This is our second year at Windsor Charter Academy (our daughter is in first grade) and, thus far, we have been extremely impressed. The teachers have been excellent, and she has learned quite a bit. Before we selected WCA, we did look at other schools in Windsor, as well as TR Paul in Fort Collins, and we were most impressed in WCA. We are confident that we made the right decision for our daughter. I appreciate that what parents feel is important in a school can vary greatly, but if you are looking for a good academic school with a great staff, check out WCA. If your child is a prodigy (apparently that is pretty common), you may be better off looking into Harvard.

WCA is incredible; from staff to parents to students, this truly is a beacon for what charter schools in Colorado can be! The teachers are top-caliber and represent diverse styles and backgrounds. The Core Knowledge curriculum is outstanding at helping students progressively build their knowledge and critical thinking skills. Most importantly, there is a really sense of energy and enthusiasm at this school... people want to be here and want to be involved. WCA is a gem.

If your kid needs extra anything pick a larger school that offers more with open door policies and less parents in control. After 2 years, this is our last, our kids still feel like they re on the outside looking in. No amount of good behavior, effort, solid A, occasional B, grades open doors. The same kids from the same families get picked for the lead rolls in the school plays, the sports with tryouts, the accelerated gifted classes, honor society, student counsel... With limited funding/space what parent in the teacher/board member position would deny their kids or friends kids when picking for those prime extra curricular positions? Nepotism Cronyism Favoritism = deserving kids without a shoe in are left out of the few extras the school offers. Furthermore, this inequality from adults exacerbates the common stigmas/clicks among kids. Very sad.

If you want your child to attend WCA, get them on the waiting list. You'll have an excellent chance of getting in, as large numbers of families are fleeing this once-superior school. The current board has turned it into a core-knowledge school in name only. In 2008 they hired a first-time principal with no experience in core-knowledge, nor in charter schools. Since then, the academic standards have plummeted. The CSAP scores remain high because for 3 months leading up to the testing, children bring home assignments labled "CSAP Prep" and "CSAP review" and spend countless hours in class practicing CSAP test taking. Our child had 31 parties and field trips that wasted unbelievable hours of class time. Others can scoff at the completely unprofessional appearance of many of the teachers, but, with the kids expected to meet the dress code, it displays shocking hypocrisy. Please, visit a class before enrolling here.

We were really excited about beginning this school. However, our excitement has declined. The teachers are teaching to the CSAP's. There is no excitement for learning or encouragement to advance. My children are bored and there is no gifted and talented programs. Teachers with tattoos, body piercings and a dirty appearance is unexceptable. My children have been bullied with no real solutions being brought to the table. This school has been knocked off course. It could come back but, will take a great deal of leadership and work.

We have been somewhat disappointed in our experiences with WCA. The school comes with a stellar reputation, but in our experiences it has not met the needs of our child. The curriculum is not as challenging as we were led to expect, and they have no gifted and talented program at this time. The safety and discipline aspect of the school has been inconsistent in our child's classroom. Windsor as a whole has wonderful public schools, so we encourage parents to compare carefully and consider what would be best for their individual child before getting caught up in opinions of other parents.

WCA is one small, but powerful, example of how school choices can fix what is wrong with regular public ed. The elementary school now has an excellent rating on the governor's report card. We have a good relationship with our school District (it took time, but we persevered). I believe we have the best 3rd-grade teacher in Northern CO. This year's reading scores were 4 points higher than last, at a 96%. Other scores won't be released until late August. Of course, he also built upon what the other teachers had started in the younger grades. Kudos all around. WCA also does well with character ed. and has many afterschool clubs, sports and options.

Excellent leadership with a great staff of teachers, administrators and office staff. Children feel that they are held accountable for being good citizens while they know they matter and it's important that they are there. Parents are very active in helping achieve quality in all aspects of the school government.

This school is superb. I had my kids in another public school in Windsor that just wasn't cutting it for me--didn't seem to really care if they taught my kids anything. We switched to this school two years ago when it opened and I have never been sorry. There are several things that this school offers that are worth looking at: 1. Core knowledge curriculum--renowned and proven in many other local charter schools. This curriculum offers a sequential, logical progression through the grades 2. Small size--one track per grade, teachers and principal know all the kids. Older kids are encouraged and expected to set good role models for young ones 3. Dedicated teachers--my kids are where they are today because a teacher here cared. I never experienced that in the traditional system. These teachers are here because they want to teach and love the program, not for high pay or tenure.

As of the 2011/12 school year, WCA has moved to a new organizational structure where we now have a K-8 Principal, Mrs. Tracy Stanford and a 6-8 Principal, Mrs. Julie Claeys. With a growing student body, the board felt the importance of differentiating the two schools. The dual principalships are giving our administration more time in the classrooms, more time with their teachers and more dedicated time in addressing individual educaitonal needs of all students.
