Wawaloam is a gem of a school. Mrs. Marino is a fantastic principal who goes above and beyond to provide leadership and guidance to her staff and parents. She sets very high standards and always abides by them, herself. Children at the school are well-behaved and focused on learning, and the warm and loving staff and teachers are absolutely amazing. Children are cherished and yet firm expectations are set and consistently enforced; as a result, they excel in their learning and thrive at this school. Three of our children attended Wawalaom, and all three had the best experiences and happy memories there. Kudos to all!

I just love Wawaloam School! The atmosphere is warm and welcoming for both students and parents. The staff are great - engaged, dedicated, enthusiastic, and loving. My daughter had such a wonderful experience. Learned a lot and loved going to school. They have a wonderful behavior program, The Wawaloam Wannabes, that uses positive reinforcement to teach being responsible, being respectful, and being safe. The principal and office staff are outstanding, as is the school nurse. Can't say enough good things!

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
