    I love Wessendorf the teachers are amazing their fun they can relate to you and some of them even let you listen to music. While we walk in the hallways I get to talk to my friends. And in first period (If you're not doing good math or reading) you get to go to an academy class where they teach you important life lessons. If you are around this area don't Send your kid to private school send them here it is AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is a very good 6th grade center. We are almost done and my daughter is sad to leave. Her teachers were excellent! The teachers keep the kids focused but they still have fun. At this age the teachers expect the children to be more responsible. Progress reports come home regularly and the teachers are always willing to answer questions whenever I email them. I think the staff at Wessendorff does great job of preparing students for the faster pace of junior high.

    This school is good for a certian type of person the kind who thinks disipline is good. It is like a prison. We sit in rows in the cafeiteria. We walk in lines to and from classes. There is no talking at lunch. If you miss a day of school sick they call the truancy officer on you. If you like disipline then this is the place for you!

    This is a very good school. My son graduated from this school and he enjoyed every minute of it. The teachers are very dedicated to the students as well as their job. If you're not a displine type person then this school just may not be for you. However to each it own but you would be passing up a number (1) one school.

    This is a terrible school. If you are looking for anything else other than test scores like the emotional and general well-being of your child then keep your child out of this school. It is a Title 1 school almost 'lock down' mode if your child is sick they will be considered truant no matter what medical proof you provide they discourage socialization and making friends. There are no clubs or extra curricular activities. All they care about is making the test grades. That's it. I wish we'd known before we'd bought a house where we did - now we're living to regret it.

    This is a good school. Very strict on dress code - which in these days can be considered by the parents a good thing - there is no sagging of the pants!
