    My son attends Waverly. He loves to go to the school everyday. The Principal Mrs. Jacobs is superior and welling to communicate with the parents. With her great leadership the teachers are loving and professional. Parents are very much updated and involved in the school activities. The school even teaches two foreign languages- Spanish and Chinese. Waverly also offers excellent early intervention and special education classrooms and services. Needless to say Waverly is one of the best schools in the region. We are very lucky to be here.

    My kid goes to this school. It is awesome. The teachers are highly educated and professional. We couldnot be happier sending him to school everyday. They have excellent classes and programs to enrich the students study and life. Even in K they learn foreign language and computer on weekly basis.

    Excellent School!!!! Our two children are enrolled and they are receiving a great education. We were in private school at first and was a little hesitant to send the kids to public school. I think we made a great choice our oldest said the work is much more challenging at Waverly and they dont feel boared with the work.
