Open Quote My husband and I are extremely pleased with William Perry Elementary School! We started at Westwood Elementary and being that our daughter has special needs that were not able to be addressed at Westwood we transitioned her to WP. First impressions were remarkable! I could go on but let me just say that our daughter is progressing very well. The staff of WP are highly qualified and proffessional tending to each child's needs on an individual basis and with utmost care(TLC)! Our daughter is in her third year at WP and I can honestly say I have not met a single staff member that I would not entrust my daughter's care to. WP is also very parent friendly. There has not been a time that my questions or input has not been thoroughly addressed and welcomed. My husband and I had planned to move to the County but have decided to stay in our current home here in Waynesboro as long as our daughter can attend WP. Hat's off to the staff of WP!!!

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.
