Just wanted to take a moment to thank the staff at Winchester Trail elementary. I received a call from the school today because my child had an unexcused absence on 1/10/14 and they wanted to know why she was not in school. I immediately called them back and advised them that she was not in school because they had advised me they would not allow her to come to school because I had not moved all of my belongings into my new apartment that was in Canal. Canal is tricky, you move a minute in one direction you're out of the district, 30 seconds the other way you're in it. No big deal, other than the fact they made her sit in the principal's office all day the day before without calling. It's all water under the bridge now. My child has only missed on day of school this year. Yay!

We have three children enrolled in CW schools and two are currently at Winchester Trail. I think they do an amazing job and have been very, very impressed. As a teacher myself, I understand both sides of the education coin and I couldn't be happier. As with any occupation, we have had some teachers that were better than others, but I can honestly say I feel that every teacher we've had was concerned about the best interests of my child. I would say the teachers are dedicated, hard working, enthusiastic, and caring.

I currently have 2 children that attend this elementary school and I feel that there is a lack of communication with the parents and the teachers.My child is suffering in his classes and I would have never known if I had not looked on progrss report.Once I found out that he was having problems I Immediately scheduled a conference with his teachers and the problem has not gotten any better.I know that there has to be parent involvement but the teachers dont even seem concerned. Before attending this my kids went to Hilliard Schools and I can definetly tell the difference.

The staff is caring and hardworking, the building is up to date and still like new. All that's needed is for the community to step up and vote yes for the school operating levy so better opportunities can be provided for their children!

This is my childrens first year in CW and I find it very refreshing. It is very clean and the teachers, students, and other faculty went above and beyond to ensure my children were comfortable entering the new school. A couple of my friends have sold there home to move into this district from Hilliard, another downsized into an apartment for CW school. After experiencing a charter - which was horrindous, and Columbus public - which was a nightmare; it was great to find an educational system like CW. We are so happy, we are looking to buy our home in CW.

This is a horrible school district if your child is outside what they consider 'normal'. They do not want to help or tolerate any child that does not fit into their structure. This means at least 50-75% of our children are not wanted there. This school is failing our children.

This school system is horrible. If your child does not fit in the 'norm' of what they expect, the system fails the child. The child does not feel respected or like they belong and the school does not want these children there. No accountability on the schools part. Horrible! I will never vote for another CW levy since they will never spend the money on the children s best interests!
