    My children wake every morning looking forward to being at Wanke. It has a great faculty and administration. As a teacher I want my kids to want to go to school and I think this is what makes Wanke great!

    The school is fabulous overall but the teachers are overworked and the amount of pressure put on the teachers is enough to cause burn out and anxiety. The teachers work extremely hard and yet more and more pressure to get test scores higher and higher is significant. I think the school means well but I think they might want to step back and look at what is actually occuring.
