Front office staff not very helpful or organized so far this new school year. I was having issues with my child's bus not showing up all week and was pretty much given the run around and no one was able to get this resolved as of yet!

WSE is amazing! The principle Ms. Presley is kind, caring, and very present in the hallways. My son has been attending this school going on 3 years and we have never had issues. The halls are quiet, classes are well managed and every staff member is kind and highly competent. WSE es incre ble! El principio de la se ora Presley es amable, cari osa, y muy presente en los pasillos. Mi hijo ha estado asistiendo a esta escuela va en 3 a os, y nunca hemos tenido problemas. Los pasillos son tranquilas, las clases est n bien gestionados y cada miembro del personal es amable y muy competente.

I am a parent that came from a great school district in Northern Va. I moved here and found that this school not overcrowded like many of the Charlotte schools, but the teachers are dedicated, the parents are involved and they do an excellent job in getting the kids excited about school and teach what it is to be a citizen of this community and in the future. I think it is up to the parents no matter what school to make sure they are just as dedicated as the teachers and administration to make sure their children are making the grade. The teachers can't do it alone.

I see dedication from the teachers at this school. The students act as one large family and I see a lot of peer level support in and out of the classroom. I am impressed with the principal and staff. The students are being prepared for the future through academics and character traits. Go WSE!

The 2004 school year ended with our EOG tests and 91% were at or above grade level. Many of the younger students are reading 3 grade levels above their class! This is a small Magnet School with a program of Leadership and Global Economics. Even though many of the students come from low to mid income homes, the parents are VERY involved in the school, and it makes ALL the difference in the childrens performances. In these days when you need a road map to find a classroom in schools with 1,200+ students, Winding Springs School of less than 500 students in a hidden gem!!
