This is my 8th year as a Waterside School parent - all three of my kids have attended. Like the reviewer from 2011, it is difficult to put into words just how wonderful this place is. In as loving and caring and nurturing environment as you might imagine the students are challenged not only to be the best student they can be, but the best person as well. Character, both of the student and the family, is highly stressed. There is enormous parent involvement - this is not the kind of school where you just drop your child off - if you are not interested in investing a lot of your spare time in your child and their school, then this is not the place for you. If you want to work hard beside your child in a school that genuinely puts your child's well-being first in small classrooms with tons of teaching support, then this is the place for your family.
Waterside has excellent teachers and it is a strong and caring school. This year 2010 has been challenging. 5th grade math has been put into the 6th grade level and they taught students to persevere even during struggled times.
