Winston has such a family-friendly atmosphere! Everyone is family at Winston! The love for children exudes from the pores of each and every staff member at WES. I am thankful that my children get to be a part of Winston Elementary School...The best elementary school in the county! I am truly blessed!

7 out of 10 is rediculous!! This is a 10+ out of 10 school! The children are incredible, the arts, music and P.E. are so far above the others that words cannot justify the experience your child will have. I have had three children go to this school and all are way above the 'norm' as far as other children I have met that I could not believe why anyone in this district would be crazy enough to send their child to a private school. Great school, great administration and above all else, wonderful teachers! You can't go wrong sending your children to this school.

My kids first year at Wunston was last year. It turned out to be the best school that my kids had ever attended. My son had never gone through the experience of being taught by a male teacher and it was the best. Mr.Carruth was his teachear. My son enjoyed every moment of being in his class. I feel that sending your children to Winston is the best thing a parent can do.

Winston is a great place. Teachers set high standards for their students, the leadership is excellent, and parents are actively involved. I've been around many different schools and I am so happy that my children attend this way.

I teach at Winston and could not imagine being in a better place. The teachers have high expectations for all students and the atmosphere is full of love and encouragement. I will be very sad when my son leaves this wonderful place! He has had six amazing teachers that have prepared him for middle school.

Winston is a wonderful school. The staff is very caring & dedicated to the children. I am sad that my second child must move on to Middle School next year.

My child has encountered a loving, nurturing and understanding environment at Winston Elementary. His teachers have taken the time to not only assist when he has been lacking but challenge when he is bored. I've found no bullying, mean spirtedness and a lot of adult supervision that makes me feel comfortable leaving my child in their hands. I am encouraged by the support the school gets in the community and find many outside of school activities supported by the school. The area is small, relaxed and a nice alternative to metro living.
