This school understands the need to develop character in their students and does a great job of creating a family atmosphere for the children. The new principal is dynamic and up-to-date in educational practices. As a result, the school has been growing in leaps and bounds since her arrival. There are a lot of new, exciting programs being implemented at Winans because of this leadership and I look forward to the changes ahead. I also value the nice mix of cultural diversity in the school and the way in which the children embrace those differences. My child is learning to be a good citizen/person, as well as effectively preparing for the demands of college. Thank you, Winans!

Winans is a warm and welcoming school. I see the kids coming and going to school in my neighborhood and they are respectful and fun to watch. Staff seem very supportive.

Chaos. Complete chaos. Students pulling the fire alarm randomly, instructional time is not valued here.

I chose this school out of MANY in my area due to some very specific things I wanted to see- nice mix of children and families, friendly, open staff, responsive teachers. I have not been disappointed.

Winans is not supportive if you are not the Mother of the child. The teachers have been very exclusionary to other members of the family. It has been difficult.
