As a concerned Grandparent of three Granddaughters and a Grandson who has attended Wequonnoc School at one time or another over the past eight years , I highly approve of the quality education the school provides for each and every student! The staff of Wequonnoc School goes way above and beyond to see that each students needs are met even if it means that child receive extra help for special needs! My seven year old Granddaughter is currently in the first grade at Wequonnoc and whereas her last school was quite uncaring at times of her being unable to keep up with her class, this school has given her the extra help she needs to boost her self esteem. I highly commend Wequonnoc School for being a quality educator!
