The school is lacking academically, there are very few opportunities to challenge students. We were told by the administration that they focus on the children who need improvement and they do not have programs for the ones who excel.
Waterford is a great small school with a community feel. Teachers are good and caring, both in elementary and high school. The Dare program is run by a great officer who is a positive role model. This school has a good system.
The elementary school teaching staff is "average", with the remaining secondary and tertiary staff members "below average". The teachers do what they can with what they have in attempts to prepare the children for middle/high school. The "lacking" when the children leave the elementary school is another issue unto itself... In conclusion, the elementary school is average, the upper grades are horrible.
