    Featured Review: Parent says We had a great Kinder teacher who cared about her students and was exceptional in creating a learning environment that always grasped the children's attention. If you as a parent support the learning...They have a dedicated French and Spanish teacher and the program flows very well. Is it an immersion program, no, but my daughter is still speaking the French she did learn and it's summer. Parent communication is great. I am very impressed by their weekly emails and monthly news letters!! Their goal is to purchase their own property for the school within the next few years as well. And they let go teachers who are not up to par. Versus full public institutions where they have to keep...I support this school whole heartily and make two 40 minute round trips a day, for pick up and drop off for my daughter to attend. Long story short, you get out of the school what you as a parent are....

    Featured Review: Freshman says I have been a student at WSCA for 3 years, and so far I have loved and enjoyed my experience. The teachers, staff, admin, classes, and a majority of students are great. Due to the size of the school...My least favorite part of WSCA is the lack of opportunities. While the college preparation is great, I feel like we lack a lot of clubs, abroad programs, and sports that other schools offer. As a...I still love my school, fight wolves fight!.
