The principal does a great job running the school. Teachers are great and after school activities (science club, math club...) are great for the kids. My son feels safe and at home, and he is excelling there. Keep up the great work!

I couldn't be more pleased with the Wing School. My child is in Kindergarten and his experience has been truly wonderful so far. I am so impressed with the curriculum and how far along he has come in such a short amount of time.

As a parent, I was very pleased with my daughters teacher this past year. Her sense of caring for the children is beyond reproach. I could only hope that the entire staff is as dedicated to their profession as Mrs Norton was.

The quality of programs and teaching is great, but the principal is not open to suggestions for change.

Quality of programs are excellent. There are no extracurriculer activities. Parent involvement very high. Principal & Nurse interaction very low.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
