They left my 5 year old unattended for an extensive amount of time, then proceeded to punish her by suspension because she locked the bathroom stalls for fun. The staff told me that my daughter, who is special needs with adhd, a sensory and social disorder, because she cant keep her hands off of things and other kids that they are now documenting her for bullying, regardless of the fact she isn't actually harming anyone. And then proceeded to tell me that her behavior isn't from a disorder it is taught and maybe I should punish her adequately at home for her actions at school and also take some parenting classes. Then, because her medication is 300 dollars out of pocket and isn't covered by insurance until shes 6 - that maybe I needed to cut corners and buy her the medicine. The AUDACITY! I can control her issues perfectly fine. The problem isn't me, it is them. Never in my life have I been so disrespected by school staff. It seems like this school isn't equipped to handle any child with any sort of disorder that's not severe enough for their special needs class! Unless your kid is a robot and will follow in line perfectly, I would NEVER recommend this school!
Every time I turn around my kids are on a week break of some sort. I have two 6yr. old's there and their attention span isn't big and when they are hardly in school because of the breaks there is no way for them keep focused! The staff is really friendly though
How dumb can a school be? Try to check my son out for the doctor and they wouldn't let him leave till he finish a test so he had to miss his mri on his ankle now got to wait 3 more weeks till we can make it up.
As some would also say in other elementary schools in Walton Co. that they have the best school. I also can say that about WPES. Teachers, parents and PTO all get along great and truly care about all children there. We as a community are truly blessed to have the greatest elementary school around.
I really do not understand the five out of ten stars! This school scores highest in the CRCT each year. We moved here five years ago and my daughter exceeds on the CRCT every year. The principals and staff all know our kids by name? How many schools can say that? I really do not trust these rankings anymore. This school is great!
