    Great School Great Staff Great Community. We are excellent on 1 to 1 laptop community staff and school.

    The Weeping Water Schools have improved dramatically the past few years. The new administration has a vision and the teachers are willing to go the extra mile to help my kids. They are very supportive and challenge them in the classroom. My oldest has gone to college and has excelled because of this school. 5-10 years ago I don't know if I could say that. Great teachers and great kids.

    This school is improving with the guidance of a new principal named Gary Wockenfuss. He gets everyone pumped up and want to learn

    I think this is an excellent school. I have been sending my children there for over 10 years now and they tech me something new almost everyday. My son is doing math that I did in college and he is only in 7th grade. I live by the principal and he is a very respected leader. No one ever trashes his house because he is such a great guy. I have a junior an 8th grader and a 7th grader and they all do very well. I graduated from Millard and seeing the smiling faces in Weeping Water and well thought out plan for education I highly recommend this school.

    The school I would say is behind in just about everything but sports some teachers are willing to help but not many everyone is behind if you go to college after high school you will be behind in just about everything. Teachers assign projects with out considering if people can afford the same things as other students not a school I would send my kids there after having graduated from there I will send them to Elmwood instead.
