Our family relocated to Winnsboro from another state. My children have been warmly received by everyone in the community. The elementary school is a warm and loving environment, where the staff cares for my children like they are a part of their own family. The teachers at Winnsboro Elementary are kind and take their job seriously. I am especially grateful for our principal, Mrs. Amason.

WES is a wonderful school. I am a college professor and I believe the education my children receive at this campus is excellent. The teachers are wonderful and it is a warm and nurturing environment. The administration at this school does a great job inspiring excitement about learning in the students as well as the teachers.
