Worse school ever, no public school in the nation is as terrible as WPA, if the school system can't handle a bad kid, this kid will end at WPA. Parents never show up for anything, Principal doesn't care, teachers handle kids as booth camp because they have too, if you have a good kid this is not a good place. Honestly this place is like jail because the population and management and that's the honest true.
Fantastic school!! My Granddaughter loves to get up every morning and go she doesn't want to miss anything. Mrs Sanchez is a great teacher, she spends time with each of her students and the class size is perfect!!
I am a teacher at WPA, and this has been a successful school year. I am amazed by the quality of the reading program that this school has implemented and the Core Knowledge Program. The Core Knowledge Program provides engaging and aunthentic learning experiences for elementary students. These students finish the school year having absorbed knowledge that is typically learned in high school.
WPA has caring staff that are highly qualified, many have master degrees. The student teacher ratio is excellent, the core knowledge curriculum paired with direct instruction and inquiry learning is giving the students a well rounded education. We offer Spanish, chorus, violin classes as well as PE and Computer lab. I am able to take my students on field trips frequently to expand their horizons and reinforce my lessons. The academics are rigorous but the students are motivated and excited about learning which makes me a better teacher.
I teach at Wilmington Prep. We have a dedicated staff who is committed to the success of each of their students'. We have a small teacher to student ratio, therefore we are able to cover a lot of subject matter each day. We also offer Spanish to all grade levels, along with violin, music, and soccer. We encourage learning thru hands on experiences by offering various field trips and community projects. This school offers students a well rounded education absolutely tuition free.
This school is brand new and With a lot of changes and moves made to help this school excel the teachers have remained in love and helping with each child individually. THere is nothing the school isn't willing to do to help the child succeed in the classroom and in life.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
