I'm a parent of a 5th grader and I think the school is great. Good teachers that communicate well with parents. Principle and other staff are friendly and approachable. Great supportive environment with a well behaved student body. My daughter has done well here and has good grades

Waterloo fosters excellent academic preparation. Furthermore, the principal and every teacher I've met have been warm, caring people who are truly interested and supportive of my children's growth and development. Hooray for Waterloo!

My son started Waterloo preschool 2 months ago and it has been amazing! The staff is very supportive and makes everyone feel welcome and special! I have not encountered any member of staff that did not offer assistance. The Principal, Mrs. Webster is truly great, very involved and fosters a positive atmosphere within the school.

Waterloo is a very good school. I have 3 kids here and they love it! The principal, Mrs. Webster is very kind & dedicated. She is present at all the after-school events and is also very active at these events. I have subbed a few times at Waterloo and the staff & teachers are friendly. I am pleased with the quality of education my kids are getting. There are so many fantastic teachers from Mrs. Bray, Ms. Yakscoe-Markle, Mrs. Kuegler, Mrs. Billey, Mrs. Pleasant & Mr Fellin to Mrs. Cutick, just to name a few; who are doing a wonderful job of adding value to our kids. Thank you to all the staff & teachers at WES. God bless you all!

My son just started Pre-K and had never been out of the care of his family before. He was welcomed so warmly by the staff, from the principal down and he now loves school. We moved from California in hopes of starting our children off right in good schools and we are pleased with this school already.

The school is friendly and accomodating. My sons are special needs and started in the middle of the school year. The school went above and beyond to integrate them and make them comfortable. The principal is good, the vice principal is also nice and having school age kids as well he can relate. The school psychologist is pretty cool. The lunch ladies are neat. There are fun activites run by the pta every so often. Although, I wish they taught foreign languages. They don't. Overall, this school is wonderful!

We have had three children attend Waterloo over the last 12 years and feel very fortunate. The staff is stable, well-trained, friendly and organized. The facilities are clean and inviting. Testing levels have gone up. At times we have had discipline problems and the staff has been prepared to work with us, even coach us on progressive discipline. The parent volunteers tend to be the same ones every year and that needs to improve. We will remember Waterloo fondly (this is our last year).

Our children were transfered to Waterloo. We were extremely pleased with how well Waterloo welcomed our children and made them feel like they belonged right from the beginning of the school year. We were also very pleased that Waterloo has a warm and friendly learning environment where each student is encouraged to excel and learn in a positive yet relaxed atmoshphere. The school environment is welcoming and smiling faces meet and greet you wherever you turn. The students classwork and artwork are proudly displayed all through the building as well as incentive and achievement walls and showcases. Kudos to a staff that does an A+ job!

Our daughter was transferred from Worthington, which our other children had attended. We were very worried that Waterloo would not meet the very high standards we had come to expect at Worthington. In fact, we believe it has exceeded them. We are very very pleased with Waterloo on all levels.
