Both of my kids go to Wainwright...It is just an okay school. The best benefit the school has is the teachers. The teachers at wainwright really care for the students and their education. The new principal is not good. I wish they would bring Dr Berrea back. He loved the kids and got to know them.

Both of my children attend Wainwright. I have beed pleased with the school and the teachers. The only thing I do not like is the traffic at dismissal time and the disregard for our chidren safety with parents driving on the wrong side of the road to go around traffic at the main entrance. I feel more needs to be done to direct traffic.

My granddaughter has attend 1st and 2nd grade here and I have been very pleased w/the attention she gets in class. Have been pleased with the turnover in the prinipal at the end of school last year.

About the comment about not being able to walk your little one to class I'm sure every parent would love to do that, but know better the halls would be filled with parents and their kids not to even begin talking about safety for our children a pedophile could easily slip by unnoticed if all the parents walked there kids to class. Signed a concerned parent.

I have had my child enrolled at Wainwright since the begining of her education, and have never had a problem. Until this year I enrolled my second child, I was told that I couldn't walk my child to class after the first wk. Smaller childern require more time to adjust. The teacher had no problem with me walking my child to class. The Principal didn't feel the same way and spoke to us without any compassion toward my child. Now when my child sees the principal she is afraid of him. When a child senses fear their level of trust is lowered. My child still attends Wainwright because I admire the teachers. I wish I could say the same of their principal.
