Needs accomodations to bring all students up to par. Level of teacher professionalism extremely low.

Widener is an all handicapped school and is barrier free as far as the physical invironment is concerned. However it has hardly any academic standards. If your child has a high or even average intelligence, Widener would be an extremely poor choice.

As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.
