    Windsor Woods is an awesome school. I am a mother of 5 children 3 in their 20's who attended and 2 that attend now and have had the same teachers as their older siblings. I think this says a lot about a school when the teachers stay for so many years. The staff is incredible they really care about the children and go the extra mile to help them in every aspect of their life whether it be their education extra-curricular activities etc. My children truly enjoy and look forward to going to school every day. The school has a great Principal he makes it a point to know all the children and stays involved in all the school events. I have enjoyed participating in all the school events and will be very sad when the last of my children graduate from this school.

    I have two kids that went to this school. One in third grade and one in first grade. They both attended since kindergarten. Unfortunately we had to move out of state. I was sad to leave this wonderful school. My kids had great teachers each year and it seems that everyone that works there is happy to be there. Great School!

    Windsor Woods is an excellent school with quality teachers and by far the best Principal.

    My daughter has been at Windsor Woods for 3 years and we are very sad to leave because of a military transfer. The teachers and staff are very caring and they all want your child to succeed. Ms. Carpenter is the Asst. Principle and is the best I have met so far. We will miss this school very much!!

    What a great school especially the teaching staff. They cared about my child's success. Did I mention that this year they are in a brand new school with State-of-the-Art equipment.

    WWES was an incredible school for my son. He was in the gifted program and had incredible teachers that really challenged him from the start of the year. They didn't just give him busy work they gave him more in depth work on various subjects of interest for him. This school has a small town feeling in a big city. I loved WWES and would highly recommend it to anyone!

    All 3 of my boys are going to this school it is a delight to know that they are going to a safe place and that they are well taken care of while they are in school. One word for all Teachers and Principal please keep up this great job. Thank You all!

    A nurturing sweet-natured community-oriented school with almost zero teaching turnover and an inspiring commitment to kids. Teachers like Donald Miles Kawanna Ansell Kelly Linkous and the fifth-grade team are the match of any in Virginia. I loved having my daughter here. I'll miss visiting.

    I went to Windsor Woods from kindergarten to fifth grade. I am now a senior at Virginia Wesleyan college. I am going to graduate with honors and I feel that the wonderful base I received at Windsor Woods helped me immensely in my educational carreer. I enjoyed learning and wanted to absorb all I could. I hope some of the faculty is the same they were divine!
