    Great teachers administration and subs. Great kids. There is always smiling kids wherever you go. I also love their after school PAAW program. They are also very attentitive to the different learning needs of the children. I always feel at home in the hallways.

    My child has been at Winstead since Kindergarten. I do believe it is a good school and overall pleased with it. One area it is lacking is diversity - not just racial diverity but diversity of how they define families. One parent two parents grandparents???? etc. I have several situations where the closed mindness of employees (events assignments etc) have impacted my child. Like anywhere it can be clique-ish. You as a parent really have to make an effort to get involved. Sign up to be room parent etc. There is more 'quiet bullying' that goes on than I think the schools realizes. All this said.... I myself am in the education field (higher education) and I do think my child is getting an excellent education.

    Outstanding! I have two children at Winstead and we are in our 5th year there. We moved within our neighborhood to stay at Winstead it is very much a family oriented school. Parent invovement is outstanding teachers are impeccable and always exceed expectations. The principal Mrs. Kinder is fabulous! She sets an wonderful example that trickles all the way down through the school! Winstead has made a name for itself among WCS and risen way above very quickly!

    My daughter has been at Winstead since Kindergarten and is now in 4th grade. We absolutely love Winstead. The teachers are excellent and propel the kids to scholastic excellence. The staff principal and aids are also wonderful. Parent involvement I will agree is outstanding. Though it's a public school Winstead has been nicknamed 'Franklin's Private School' because of the high standards and wonderful atmosphere.

    An elementary school reminiscent of those 40 to 50 years ago....safe clean friendly with a laser focus on the meat of education where teachers are in charge and administrators understand that their role is one of service to the teachers. Everyone is polite courteous and very responsive to parents. The most organized elementary school I have ever seen...
