Since the school has changed to IB in 2016, the school has gone down. No homework, very few projects, no communication from teachers. My oldest daughter has made honor roll every quarter of every year of attendance. My oldest daughter has been identified as "gifted". Yet, no increase or challenging assignments have been given. Before it was IB, prior to 2016 with the old principal, it was fine. I was told by a teacher that the new principal does not believe in homework! -a parent

Effective school leaders: Disagree

Leadership starts at the top. The new principal is not very good. The new principal does not believe in homework, was told that by a teacher.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Lack of communication from teachers. If there is a problem one does not find out until after the quarter.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree

My children are very happy here. Both are doing really well with their grades. Homework is very parent involved. Always getting notes sent home and emails and text messages so it hard to ever forget any event or homework and field trip or signed forms that are due in. My children have very good teachers and we are happy with the school and teachers so far. I would recommend this school :)


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Once again, it depends on the teachers. Its sad because there are some really great teachers at this school, but they are so beaten down in the culture that the principal has created. My child got stuck with the not so great teachers, and the principal was none too concerned about fixing the issues.

Amount of homework: no rating

This varies from year to year and teacher to teacher. I can tell you that they won't tell you if there's an issue until it's way past the point when you should have been notified. Communication is not their strong suit. If they can sweep it under a rug, they will, all the while gossiping about it in the front office.

This school has been amazing. We are a military family and move around quite a bit. When my oldest child arrived at the school she was about half a grade behind in reading. Now two years later she is doing extremely well and reading a bit ahead. I attribute 90% of this change directly to the teachers she has had. Even when they were not teaching her directly they were allowing her to use personal interests to drive herself.

This school is phenomenal. I've had two children attend Waugh Chapel and they both loved the school, teachers and the staff. My oldest son just started middle school enrolled in advanced classes and is consistently achieving honor roll. I've had the pleasure of meeting with Ms. Edmonds (Principal) and Ms. Earby (vice principal) on numerous occasions and they are always a pleasure to work with. My son had some issues in Kindergarten and they were both phenomenal with taking the time to get to know him and providing time and patience to assist him and find solutions to help him accel.

This school has GREAT teachers who truly care about their students, however the principal and assistant principal have a lot to learn. Easy to see they don't care about their own staff and as far as their students, that's questionable too.
