Waugh Chapel Elementary School 5

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.

The teachers are great. Principal Mrs. Sims was an exceptional principal. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is at lot of parents involvement in the PTA. Nothing negative to say. Great school!

I have one child in the school now and another in middle school, but went to Waugh Chapel. My daughter was very well prepared for the next stop when she left the school. My son who has had develepment problems is showing signs of maturing due to the fact that teachers and administration care about the childred. Ms Simms is the principal that others need to emulate.

We recently moved to the area and were surprised by the attention and friendliness shown by all. We are looking forward to her finishing out at this school.

I have a child in the 3rd grade and 1st grade at Waugh Chapel. They love it, I love it, the teachers are great and Mrs. Sims (Principal) is wonderful to the students. We could not be happier. Thank you to all the staff!!

My two sons attended WCES and I believe it to be one of the best elementary schools I can imagine. The staff were extremely helpful and professional... they cared for my sons as if they were their own children. Even my son with developmental delays did extraordinarily well because the staff and faculty were led by the most caring of administrators, Mrs. Sims. I can't thank them enough for what they have done for my boys!
