The teaching staff and administration love teaching and working with children. You can't help but smile when you walk in the building. It is contagious because everyone working there is smiling. The kids love learning!!

William Winchester provided a safe, nurturing environment for my daughter to grow and learn. WWE's staff was wonderful and the principal (Dr V.) was, without question, the very best we had ever encountered. She was a student there from 2002 to 2008. We will always have a fond place in our hearts for 'Willie'.

The PTA is great --- good ideas for fundraisers, nice ways to show appreciation for the teachers and staff, fun events for the children and adults. The music programs are awesome -- it's obvious how much the teachers love music. It translates into the children.

Willie is a wonder school full of wonder staff. Last year my son broke his arm worst than most breaks and they helped him everystep of the way until the end of school. They teach him so much content. I am amazed everyday. I never knew these things until I was much older. Way to care about every child as a learner, Willie!

My son loves Willie. The fifth grade team has very realistic expectations of the age group with which they are dealing and knows how to motivate the kids to succeed. As the parent of a child with a learning disability, I have been overwhelmed by how my concerns are immediately addressed. We have moved frequently because of my husband's job. This is the fourth elementary school my son has attended and is, by far, the best!

The teachers are very caring. From the time you walk through the door at Willie, they know who your child is and you are welcomed. I feel that my child is safe, loved and taken care of when she is at school. My daughter loves going to school and has loved every one of her teachers since she has started at Willie. Definitely has a family like atmosphere.

I can't say enough about this school. My daughter has thus far received a good education from very qualified teachers. Every teacher that I have encountered has been easy to approach and truly cares about the students progress. The best thing about this school is the fact that it has an open door policy. I can go into my childs classroom at any time to observe, no advance notice needed. Willie also has an active PTA, with lots of parent involvement. Dr. V, the principal, is the most involved administrator I have ever seen. He is always popping in the classrooms and isn't afraid to do work himself ( ie. shoveling snow, pulling weeds or cleaning tables if needed). As a parent I really couldn't have asked for a better team, and that is exactly what this school is ... a team!

I am a former student of this school and a recent college graduate with a degree in secondary education. I remember my time there as being filled with constructive, creative activities fostered by great teachers and a supportive staff. I am so glad I had such a strong foundation in my education!
