This school is really awful. They discipline their students by teaching them to be "truthful" at all times when they themselves aren't very truthful at all. Copying PACE's and charging parents for them anyways. Always having the fire exit blocked by a scoring table, and moving it before the firemarshall came in to check it. To me, that's being dishonest. If you send your kid here, you should probably believe them over the staff unless they have a reason to be dishonest. They aren't consistent!!!

Every school has it's issues. Overall this is a good school, and the teachers are truly caring - that's the bottom line. There is always an open door for communication. Any problems encountered either from my childs standpoint or from the schools standpoint are always discussed and decisions for the better are made as group. My child is happy here and has developed wonderful relationships both with her peers and the teachers. It has grown over the years, and we liked it better when it was smaller in size; however growth is a good thing both for the school and for my child who will benefit from the increased population while transitioning to college later. Everything they do is focused on the child and the bible. This school ensures the child gets the education they need academically as well as biblically. Many graduates have received scholarships and gone on to do well in college. I'm happy we found this school as it has made a world of difference in my childs life.

This school had a lot of flaws. The teachers are overwhelmed all the time, and it caused a lack of help for students. Everyone there is kind of off to themselves. I wouldn't exactly say they are unfriendly, but probably more two faced than anything else. The Principal is kind of manipulative, and that was stressful to deal with. The only thing this school is good for is to get your GPA higher.

I love teaching at WCA - the atmosphere is very positive. The teachers enjoy teaching and like the students. The students are kind to each other, and our principal wants most of all to pass on his love for God and His Word to the students.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
