The school I have to say needs to find more ways to help children in need or ones that are failing. I have dealt with them for 2 years already and my son always seems to be the problem not them. Yes they push hard on academics which is great but helping every child understand the material and pass is important too. I am definitely contemplating on changing my son's school for next year. Everyone there needs an attitude adjustment as well. So yeah good luck!

The fall 2012 school year i enjoyed the school and my son had an amazing Kindergarten teacher that communicated with me about his grades. Once he got to the First Grade everything changed. His new "teacher" would give spelling tests and never give the grades. She also complained about my child's attitude and when he probably learned it from her because she had a nasty attitude. She was also absent 50% of the time. Hopefully he gets a great 2nd grade teacher this upcoming school year.

The administration is not doing a good job. Parents can not communicate with teachers. Also they put policy where is no in the school policy book or orange county dress code book. one day I was going to leave my daughter to the classroom and i stop at the office to get a visitor pass and the front desk lady grab my visitor pass and broke in half, that's is the rude they are. The principal threatened to put me a trespassing for no reason. I'm new at this school but I will move my daughter to other school next year if they don't change they attitude.

Really great school with caring teachers! My daughter started kindergarten here and now she is going into 4th. These have been some important, formidable years for her and I'm happy with how this school has help mold her into a helpful happy and intelligent young lady.

The complains that I have is: 1, There was an activity for Honor Roll and Principal Honor Roll students and nobody said anything about it and my son called me 10 minutes before it began and I was at work. 2. I asked permission on my job to start earlier to go to the Flag Football game wednesday oct. 31 because it was supposed to start at 3:15pm and when I got there at 3pm the game was over because they move it back to 2pm. NO ORGANIZATION AT ALL My son's teacher is great and fantastic. Parent involvement I know about me, but I'm trying to be at my son's school stuff . I don't about others parents

The teachers and principals at this school are top-notch. My son is only in first grade but both his kindergarten teacher and now his first grade teacher have been excellent. The teacher -student ratio is good at an average of 18-20 students per teacher. My husband and I are very involved in both my sons activities and community meetings etc. This is a very important for every child's success in school. I give high marks to this school.

MW focuses on academics. The area is low socio-economic, and because funding comes from taxes that we as parents pay on on our homes, there is not much that goes to extra curricular activities, tutoring and afterschool events. Parents at this school do not attend the PTA meetings. When the district decided not to build a new school for MW, a small amount of parents responded; however, many teachers rallied for a new school even writing their Congressman on behalf of the school and the parents. Before we as parents ask more of the school, we need to ask ourselves: How are we helping our children at home? MWE is a good school with good teachers. There are always exceptions to the rule. Until we as parents stop seeing the school as a babysitting service for our children, and until we begin to become involved, not much will change.

mw needs to offer more extra activites and tutoring after school.Just because the teahers are funny does not mean it is a good school.Also teachers should just focus on teaching ,and not base class room learning on FCAT.

There a re not much extracurricular activities offered at this school except for meetings and afterschool care for the children. they do have some occasional special activities such as fairs, plays and concerts but I was hoping to see like a acting group or other extracurricular activity that the children may benefit from. Such as a book club, math club something. Also, I do not think they emphasize on science or language enough. I understand that in middle school and in High School, it would be taught. However I do believe it should still be something the kids should learn throughout the year. FCAT materials are emphasized way too much. I think the children should have an well rounded education but that is an issue for the Board of Ed not this school. The teachers are great. The Staff are responsible and hold a certain integrity.

I believe that safety should be more emphasized around the school area especially for the little kids and younger kids. A more strict method of picking up kids by car should be implemented by asking ID's. Other than that, it is a great school and has an excellent Principal and teachers.
