Very unprofessional. The worst mistake I've ever made. It was not a good experience. When you allow one person TOTAL control, well then the lack of respect is bound to happen. Just read the hand there underlining intimidation? I wonder but I'll have to think more on it.

My kids have attended Wardlaw for 3 yrs. In that 3 yrs my kids have made good grades and great friends. It's a wonderful school and has an awesome athletic department. Most of the teachers went to school their themselves. I really liked that about the school. It's small so everyone knows everybody. Living in this area I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else.

Standing up for Christ in this age and time is the biggest advantage for our children.

The academic programs are great, the teachers really work hard to help your child do well in his/her classes. They dont have a lot of extracurricular activities, just mainly sports. The parents are very involved in school functions. They all give 110% in everything that goes on at this school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
