    Awesome! The teachers go out of their way to assist the students. I have a 1st & 3rd grader and they are loved and have been since they started there. They are corrected and graded but they never doubt that the teacher is doing what's best for them. Mrs. Sellers is an outgoing interested administrator who loves and knows each student by name. - How often do you have that in any school? I went there years ago and it was just as homey then and I learned eagerly too.

    My children used to attend WES and now attend a school in Ohio. We truly miss the wonderful teachers and staff at WES. They are exceptional people. My children still ask if we can move back to NC so that they can attend WES. They are espically fond of Mrs. Joyce Miller and Mrs. Liz Parker. These ladies make learning a joyful experience. Thank you WES Sincerely Sherrie Howell-Lunsford
