They do not have enough students to have separate grades. They are bunched together which enables the older ones to bully the younger students and nothing is done to stop this from happening. Sadly some of the children belong to staff members so their little angels are never wrong.

Stay away and pray for those that are there now... My grandson was bullied physically, verbally, and psychologically harassed. The bullies included children of the staff. We reported the incidents and met with the teachers and administration several times. Their response was that "he annoyed the other students". The middle school environment had eight students ranging from the age of 10 almost 11 to 14 in the same class room. Teachers regularly leave students unsupervised. They called him gay, punch him in the face, pushed him down, teased him, told him he didn't have parents cause his mother was dead, wouldn't let him set with them and when he would, they would get up and walk away. These people are not to be trusted. They refuse to give us back our tuition after stating in open meetings that they would refund tuition for anyone this year.

My son has attended since he was 3-years-old. Now, in Pre-K4, he is already working on addition and reading words on his own. I am pleased with the administration's efforts to engage parents and keep us informed during their transition period to a new facility. I am extremely thankful for the many teachers that I have meant that have showed their love for their students and their school by their hardwork and diligence in getting the new school building ready for School this Fall. God Bless the school and may they continue to grow and prosper in years to come.

The school has undergone transition in leadership and have worked very hard to keep standards in learning and extracurricular activities throughout the year. Their strength is in preschool and elementary and they make every effort to fit needs of every child. They need to stress more on academics to attract more students in elementary and middle schools. The school tries hard to keep it financially affordable to all families but needs parents to do their part too.

This is our son's second year at Winchester Academy and we could not be more impressed with the level of education he is receiving. When speaking with friends who have children the same age and older, our son is successfully doing work that isn't even introduced in the public schools for another year or two. We've never had any issues with the school regarding discipline, and the teachers are always available and in constant contact via email or in person at the school with parents. He and our younger son will both definitely be continuing at Winchester Academy.

The school Winchester Academy in our opinion has a horrible experience for our child. The Academy's reactions and punishment for behavior were uncalled for. How can anyone feel justified in with holdings food from a child. It was for these, and other reasons discussed that we felt it necessary to withdraw our child from Winchester Academy.

We could not be happier with selecting Winchester Academy for our daughter. She is enjoying school and the opportunities the school provides for her to learn and lead are wonderful. The individual attention, smaller classes and educational materials, in our opinion, have made a huge difference in the quality education our daughter is getting and it shows.

This school is great! My son loves it and he is learning a lot. I like that they have a camp program - it made the school year easier to adjust for him. The teachers are very nurturing, but do enforce rules.
