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.

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.
