    The school year has just started and we are looking forward to a great year at Wesson! We have been made to feel so welcome by everyone that we've talked to in the Copiah County School District. We have been very impressed with the principals and teaching staff at WAC. I feel certain we have made the very best decision by sending our child to this school.

    A wonderful school if your child is not Dyslexic or has learning differences. The community is great

  • (3 years ago)

    Excellent teachers and great PTO. Great community of people. Teachers are very caring and active overall.

  • (3 years ago)

    My grandchildren attend Wesson School District. It is a great school for elementary students. The PTO is a vital part of school activities as it should be. I have not had any dealings with junior high or high school but the elementary is tops! I have nothing but the best to say about WAC!

    Wesson Attendance is a great school and had some major financial cutbacks this year . This will brighten the Schools spirit to win this . We have wonderful kids and staff

  • (5 years ago)

    I have a senior at WAC. I can not imagine my child going any place else. The staff is very caring about all of the children. The parents are involved with all activities. You feel like everyone is family. Hands down WESSON is the 'BEST'.

  • (5 years ago)

    This school has been a blessing to my family. My childen attended the school and now my grandchildren. The staff is always supportive and Mrs. Sullivan is a pure God send. My children and grandchildren have benefited greatly from the academic studies that they received and are receiving. I would rate all areas with a 10. Jan Coleman

    This school is not set up for students with academic problems there are no classes tutors or any other kind of help for students. The staff is very unfriendly.

  • (7 years ago)

    Excellent kindergarten program. I have been extremely pleased with how much my child has learned.

  • (7 years ago)

    I am a former student that grew up in a single parent low income home. Wesson prepared me to be the best student I could be regardless of race income etc. I would not be one defense way from my Ph.D if not for the GREAT teachers at Wesson Attendance Center. Hands down the best school in the state of Mississippi.

  • (9 years ago)

    I have a child in elementary school at Wesson and have had a very positive experience there. I love the principal and she is really concerned and cares about every student. The teachers really want the children to succeed and my child has truly excelled academically.

  • (9 years ago)

    We have had a wonderful experience with our child attending school in Wesson. We have recommended it to friends and family and now six more students attend because of our recommendation. We feel welcome at any time and can be as involved with our child's class as much as we want. Our child has learned way beyond our expectations thus far and we feel like we made a terrific decision to move here. We think Wesson Attendance Center is the best school in our area.

    Personally I dislike it. Its more who you know rather than what you know at Wesson.
