My son had been in a Montessori-based private school for K-2nd, when a change in my job situation caused us to transfer him to Winston park, our local public elementary school. As he was working well ahead of grade level, as soon as the school year began, I initiated the application process to have him tested for the gifted program. It was not until January that the school tested him, then we had to wait another several weeks for the county to invite my husband and me to a panel meeting to discuss the results. Another 3 weeks later (in late March), he was finally transferred to the gifted class. The principal of the school knows how to 'say all the right things', but in the end does not seem to really care about parents' concerns. My son is now back at the Randazzo School, where he is thriving!
Winston Park is one of the best schools in the area. Parental involvement is high from PTA to parent teacher conferences to volunteer work. Music, art and computers are in abundance as well as teaching quality. My son was on the honor roll in this school every year. If the student doesnt understand a concept, the teachers work with the student to help them understand and work with the parents as well so the student gets the best learning environment. It is in a wonderful community and has parks nearby. It has two drop off areas so there arent too many traffic problems during pick up and drop off. The Office staff are always helpful and treat you like a neighbor.
My daughter started here in Kindergarten and loves attending Winston Park. The teachers are fabulous and the level of parent involvement is high. The programs offered to the children are fun and there are great numbers of students involved in the activities. Great teachers = great students.
The quality of academic programs given at this school is outstanding. The support and caring of the faculty makes this school feel like a wonderful place to be. The students are happy and excited. The faculty are caring and go above and beyond to help the children. The music program is exciting with many performances throughout the year. Parents are always willing to lend a helping hand. The classrooms have an open door policy allowing parents to volunteer and read with the kids.
I love this school, my children go here now, and the teachers are wonderful as well as the office staff. I would like to see more physical education available to them.
My children have attended Winston Park Elementary throughout grades K-5 and the school has been a wonderful source of education and social development for both of my girls. The quality of teacher education is high and the school has programs to suit gifted or high achievers as well as pull-out programs for children who are struggling in certain subjects. They have a great art, music, and physical education program suited for a well-rounded child. The parents are actively involved with a strong and united PTA that provides support and fund raising activities to the school and community. It is a top-notch, A-rated environment that provides security and a sense of belonging for the children that attend.
WPE is a great public school. Although it is a large school there seems to be a real sense of family among the students and staff. The principal is a wonderful leader who runs a well run school with little nonsense. The AP is warm and caring and very visalble at the school always wiling to help. The staff is knowledgeable and takes great pride in teaching the minds of tomorrow.
Great school and staff. Very friendly environment. Learning is evident throughout the school.
Winston Park is a great school with exceptional teachers who really care about there students.
Winston Park Elementary has been a wonderful experience for my son, my nephew and for myself. They have helped in my son and my nephews growth, education, and self-esteem. I appreciate all that the faculty and staff do everyday to maintain a calm and learning atmosphere. I believe that more parent involvement (and discipline) would definitely help in the staff and faculties ability to maintain this atmosphere for many years to come. I am hoping to be privileged enough to let my youngest children attend this school also.
This is a wonderful school. In the years that both my children have attended this school, they have recieved a quality education by teachers who are guenuniely interested in their students welfare. There is high parental involvement and I have found that both the principal and assistant principal very accessible. I would recommend this school to anyone coming into the area.
I have not rated higher due to the treatment my son has received. My son is ADD and the treatment he received from his teacher last year was horrible and nothing was ever done. They worried more about telling me everything my son did wrong instead of trying to help him improve. Luckily the teacher he has this year is a saint and we love her! The principal is also never available. I get tired of being dumped to her secretary or her assistant which is a waste of time.
