    I have a 3rd grader in this school and we love it! Dr. Holder is fantastic his teacher Ms. Camp is the best! Nothing is more important than having your child in a wonderful school with a great support system.

    we are new to washington park this year and we absolutely love it..the teachers are great and my son loves all the new friends he has made.

    I am mildly pleased with the attention given to each individual child at WPE. I would like to see the staff become more aware that the children in their care are eventually going to be adults. It is absolutely necessary to groom these children correctly. Supervision on the bus program is minimal and my family and I are very displeased with this. WPE please for the children's sake make the children mind their manners. My child cries each day because of mean children on the bus and the driver doing nothing to help.

    I have been very pleased with the level of education that my son has and is receiving from WPES. The administrators as well as the teachers are attentive to the students' needs and are effective in their jobs.

    My son attended Washington Park last year and I couldn't have been happier. My son has attended two schools in Newton County and none of them did near as good a job as Washington Park at getting the children motivated to learn. The teachers were wonderful. The school did an awesome job promoting reading by offering the children rewards for meeting their goals. The ILT Mrs. Holder is amazing. She helped in anyway she could and when she was helping our son with CRCT practice she really made it fun. I have really enjoyed our time at the school. I wish he could stay for a couple more years.
