Open Quote My child transferred here from another Forysth County school. I don't like how they run the school or deal with children. Close Quote

Open Quote We have had very good experiences with the fairly new WES since moving into the district about 3 years ago. The teachers care about their impact on the children they teach by addressing their needs, as well as those of their parents. The school nurse is very helpful and accommodates both the child and his or her family in a prompt manner. In other words, they take the business of educating our children very seriously which extends even to the bus drivers whom we have learned to love and respect. 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.
