Impressed with how well they knew my child at the parent-teacher meeting. They quickly figured out what kind of learner he was and customized their approach. They persuaded my son to push himself to the next reading level, all he wanted to do was practice reading. Thanks to the teacher's encouragement he was able to jump a level, he was so excited. My husband and I were so proud of him.
The homework is setting the stage for the study skills my child will need as he gets older. The idea of finishing your work before playtime is critical. I love that my child is learning this concept in Kindergarten.
This year my K2 child participated in the school spelling bee, he practiced his words every night. Watching these brave little 5 year olds experience winning (and mostly losing) was hard for us new parents. Watching them all hug and congratulate the last child standing made me so proud. The culture at WP is supportive and caring, but at the same time challenging.
The Warren-Prescott is a little gem in the heart of Boston. The quality of the curriculum, the kids and the parents are what makes it so special. Having just finished Kindergarten I am amazed at the level of reading and math my child has achieved in such a short time. I never thought I would be reading chapter books with my Kindergartner. Keep up the great work Mrs. Davis!
The Warren-Prescott has a number of programs to develop integrity and fairness. The anti-bullying program is conducted throughout the year. Open Circles are used to allow students to discuss issues.
For what it's worth, people may have answered this question backward, given the placement of the choices.
I have been extremely pleased with the dedication of the teachers and staff at WP. The children are academically challenged daily as well as taught kindness toward their peers. My daughter runs into school with excitement everyday and the community bonds are wonderful.
The Warren-Prescott is a great city school with a small community feel. There is a lot of parent involvement to support a dedicated and amazing principal and staff. The school manages a true "community" feel with all backgrounds of Charlestown and the surrounding areas represented. Happy to have my oldest there and looking forward to my so. Joining her in the new K1 class (fingers crossed!)
Warren-Prescott is an excellent school with a wonderful community feel. It provides a great learning environment, capable and caring teachers and staff, a committed principal, and a terrific family community. The Warren-Prescott School is a neighborhood school in the best sense of the word - with local roots in the community and families who care - while still being inviting and inclusive for families from other neighborhoods. One of the many important things the families organize is a very strong after-school program, with arts, language, sports and more. In addition, Charlestown offers very good athletic programs nearby in soccer, lacrosse, hockey, tennis and other sports. As far as test scores - the GreatSchools Rating is either out of date, not very accurate, or both. The Warren-Prescott School's test scores are comparable to the best schools in Boston, and in the suburbs (comparing those children who are not living with the additional challenges of poverty).
