We moved to Wallingford from Philadelphia for the school system and we made the best choice. The principal is incredible, she knows every single child almost immediately, and recognizes parents within the first week. She is incredibly dedicated to the children, as are the teachers. My son loves this school so much and looks forward to school every day! There are great after school programs as well. I cannot say enough great things about the school.

For 48 years the children in my family have gone to WES. It is by far one of the BEST elementary schools around. I remember my first day of kindergarten(when it was still in Wes),and how excited I was to walk into my classroom and see all the letters of the alphabet up around the room! My child also went there and had the most AMAZING second grade teacher. She was the stellar educator my child needed to open him to the possibility that school could also be fun! He NEVER wanted to miss a day. I would recommend WES as the perfect nurturing environment for young, curious minds. The ability of the teachers is remarkable. It is a wonderful place to learn about diversity as well.

As a former student of WES, as we like to call it, I would have to say it has prepared me in ways I would never have imagined. Teachers there really make you feel at home. With the visual math program, it's much, much easier to understand math. I cannot tell you how much this school has made me the person I am today.
