This school is EXCELLENT. I am a former student and have found this school to be one of the best. With it's small environment it is a great place to learn. Recess is a fun time and although there aren't many fields hey suit the needs of this little school just fine. Our principal may not have been Dr. Lynn but she was kind and understanding. The rates below are inaccurate. She came to work dressed professionally and that was only on jersey day. It's called school spirit! Whenever we have had an issue she has responded quickly. Our new principle is nice, and he seems like a great choice for this school. The only thing I have ever complained about is our cafeteria hostess Mrs. Miller. She is a tyrant in her own right, known for making first graders cry, and forcing kids to eat when they are full. She is widely despised and makes lunch a frightening (for the younger grades) and maddening lunch experience. Why would a person take a job with children if she is not tolerant and kind?
The small school environment and teachers are good, however as long as the principal is there our children are suffering. She is discriminatory against any child with special needs, and has zero tolerance for anyone who thinks differently than she. Do not bring your child late or you will be fined and taken to court. The most disgraceful hire Loudoun County has ever made.
Together, teachers, parents and students of Waterford Elementary School create a community of life-long learners by fostering an environment of high expectations, mutual respect, and personal growth.
The lack of professionalism is astonishing. The principal comes to work in jeans and a sports jersey and doesn't return calls. Technology is also lacking.
