Winter Park Model Elementary5

Three years ago, we enrolled our eldest daughter at a local private school to enter Kindergarten, but then compared the reviews of that school with those for Winter Park Elementary. The two compared well, so after much consideration we decided to enroll her at Winter Park instead. Now our daughter is in 2nd grade and we have never regretted our decision. Winter Park Elementary is academically very strong and we think highly of all the teachers and support staff we have met over the years. We volunteer at the school and get to see the school operations first hand. We are very pleased with the quality of education and the classroom environment. We are also pleased that the student body reflects the diversity of our community around the University of North Carolina in Wilmington. Best of all, our daughter absolutely loves her teachers and going to school each day! We are very pleased with her academic and social progress. Our second daughter will be ready for Kindergarten later this year and we look forward to entering her at Winter Park Elementary with her sister. And this time we are now confident they will both flourish and benefit from a well-rounded and diverse education!
My son has been going to Winter Park Elementary since kindergarten and will be going into 2nd grade this year. I have nothing but praises about this school! I love that they encourage the children to express themselves and bring out a creative and fun way to learn! i also am very impressed with there "striving to be in the d zone" approach to discipline ( the d zone is doing the right thing even when no one is looking) it makes the children want to do the right thing because they feel encouraged and supported to do so. All smiles from this mom and i cant wait for my 3yr old to start attending also in a coup;e of yrs!
