Open Quote I believe that William Walker gets a really bad rap on this and so many other school ranking websites. I understand that the numbers and rankings are based on many things - not least of which are overall test scores. But, being a Title 1 school and having such a majority of students that are Hispanic puts it at a distinct disadvantage in regards to those test scores. English is a second language to many if not most of these students and they are the translators for their parents. Getting help and guidance at home for these students is a lot more difficult. This reflects poorly on the scores. The teachers are amazing at this school. That being said, my daughter attended WW and had an amazing experience and education. I think it all depends on the needs of the child. My daughter is a very good student and certainly near the top of her class. You might think she would have been bored and not challenged in a school such as this - but that is much to the contrary. She received differentiated learning in Math, Science, and English with other students of higher caliber. My son went to a different elementary school that is not Title 1 and has received a rather generic education in comparison. We have had to do more to challenge him at home with our own guidance. So, if your child is in need of ESL specific help, WW is the place to get it. If you child is English speaking and a good student - this is also your place. Don't let the school level test scores fool you. 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.
