West Central Area (WCA) Schools Reviews

I attended WCA for my entire pre-k education. Overall, I thought this was a great school. I had just enough students in my graduating class to know everyone, but not too small that it was annoying. I grew up with my classmates being the only friends I knew. It was that kind of small town school where you can't help but love the people in your class. All of the teachers were very kind throughout my years and never said no when someone was in need. I loved my time at WCA and I'm very grateful I got to grow up with the people I did.
