4/27/2010parentMy daughter is in First Grade and I couldn't be happier that I chose this school for her. She has really excelled and the structure of the class and electives are great. The teachers make themselves available and the I'm very pleased with the education that she is receiving.
10/10/2009parentOf the teachers I know at WGP, they are there to make a difference in kids lives. One at a time. It's time more schools broke out of the mold of looking at children as numbers or minorities and look at them as individuals with dreams and hopes. This school believes in this. And that's why we've chosen to send our kids here.
9/17/2009teacherWe have a fantastic, high energy staff, terrific students, and an incredible program. Our Enrichment Classes, full time arts teachers, and beautiful green building make W.G. a great place to be.
8/14/2009otherMy grandson who is in the 4th grade attends this school and we have been very satisfied with the instruction and guidance he has received. I give it 4 stars.
7/14/2009parentI give it 5 stars! I love it. My kids love it. I have two boys enrolled right now and they love that they can pick electives and enrichment classes each semester. It's like given them a say on what they enjoy in school. Each elective provides reading and math and allows the children to learn and have fun plus engage in things like the piano, computer skill, chorus, band, dance, puppet making, animations, and it goes on and on. It's wonderful. The teachers are very enthused about getting all the children through and getting them to reach their goals by the end of each school year. I love it!
7/22/2008parentThe elective structure is amazing. The teachers are all very good and committed to each student. The facilities are first rate and Principal Chambers is Dynamic and engaging. AIG students are particularly well served.
1/10/2008parentJust like in most schools there are enthusiastic parents and there are average parents. Over all parents play a big role in supporting PTA activities and coming to meetings.
5/23/2007parentI have been very pleased with this school. My son is in kindergarten and his experience has been great! His teacher is top-notch. I wanted to get involved with the PTA but was turned off by the lack of follow-up that I received. I have talked with other parents and they seem to have positive feedback regarding the quality of education that their child is receiving. The principal makes herself available to talk with parents anytime.
9/5/2006parentWG just moved to a beautiful new facility further down Fayetteville Street. They also began a new magnet program, a GT program. My son is excited about the drama program, and they will have band, computers, and other courses not found in many schools. The school is now more diverse, and while many parents from the old school were unhappy to see so many teachers replaced, the staff so far seems energetic. One problem, dismissal, can only get better. It takes the staff quite awhile to move the students through carpool. I can only hope this will improve.
