The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the teachers are superior. Mrs.Terranova avails herself whenever she is needed, addresses the issues and I never feel rushed when speaking to her. The school Feels like family to me. Always, always a warm welcome when calling or coming in to volunteer. strongly recommended. Several 8th graders have been accepted to Suncoast MSE program, a testament to the teacher's qualifications and abilities and to administration's hiring process.

My son is very happy here! It is a small school and I love that it feels like the staff cares about my child's education.

I moved my kids to this school after hearing wonderful things about it! I have been very happy with it so far and my kids love it, too. The teachers are very caring and knowledgeable. Any minor issues I have had have been resolved quickly. My son has excelled in the STEAM program and enjoys going to school every day. The school runs very smooth and the communication is awesome! Can't say enough positive things about WACS!

Would not recommend...school singles out kids that are not challenged by their program, punishes them, label them. Had to transfer my son who is now in the gifted program at a "regular" school. Had teacher conferences which included the ESE Coordinator telling me to get my son diagnosed with something so he can get a 504 plan. That way he can be told to leave the class when he was done with his work. These people diagnosed him and they are not professionals The kid said he was BORED. HORRIBLE ADMINISTRATION, CURRICULUM IS NOT CHALLENGING, PRINCIPAL IS NOT ACCESSIBLE!

Handles bullying effectively: Neutral
