Open Quote My daughter attended kindergarten at this school and we loved it. We found the front office staff helpful, kind and accommodating, and all teachers we came in contact with were tremendous. The focus in my daughter's classroom was on learning to read and write, and my daughter took tremendous strides in both her reading/writing and her math skills. I was very impressed with her progress this year. Three major downsides, however: 1) the kindergarteners didn't begin gym or art class until after mid-semester; 2) my daughter's classroom had 20 students, three of them special needs, and only one harried full-time teacher -- NO consistent aide to help!; and 3) on bad weather days, instead of recess, the students were plopped down in front of the TV -- and not even an educational program, just some random cartoon. Not cool! Close Quote

Open Quote We are pulling our child from this school. We have been here for 2 years and find that there is not a great deal of resources for advanced learners. There have been 3 principals since we have been there and no one really seems to be on the same page for problem solving. They are quick to label kids and not in positive ways. I would not recommend putting your child here if they need to be academically challenged or if they get bored easily. Close Quote

Open Quote I have a second grader and kindergartener at AWE this year. I have been so impressed by how the teachers go above and beyond for my kids. They have been quick to talk with me regarding concerns or praises for both of my kiddos. With my second grader, this has been consitant all three years he has attended AWE. The families are friendly and there is a feeling of community around school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
