    I have one child in district and another in P-K (winterset P-K program was the BEST for both my kids). The school district is awesome and I feel the educators are all wonderful. My son Jack loves the environment and everyday about his day at school.

    Very disappointed with my kids' experience there. The principal treats kids as if they were bad kids not just good kids making bad decisions. The principal was really hard on my kids' self-esteem. Thank goodness we are almost done with the middle school/junior high principal.
