    "The powers that be at Widener should be ashamed of themselves. This school is only a very small step up from Chester's public schools. The staff is amazing, highly educated, experienced, and dedicated, but the lack of supports for students with behavioral, emotional, and academic needs is unbelievable. The school relies on parents not knowing any better, who don't complain, and don't demand what, by law, their children should be getting in the way of resources. ALL grade levels are rife with students who disrupt the classes. Teachers spend so much time handling discipline issues that it is very difficult to give special attention to any other students. I would never send my own children here. These beautiful children DESERVE so much more than this!"

    "My son did not start at WPCS on the 1st day it started, but a month later. My husband and I are very pleased with his educational career thus far. He will be entering 7th grade in Sept. and has been an honor roll student every year. Every year that he has taken the PSSA he has scored advanced & proficient. We do our part along with the teachers to make sure he's doing and becoming the person he can be. The schools can only do so much, parents have to be active participants in their child(ren)s education. I applaud the faculty and staff at WPCS and I'm looking forward to this school year under the direction of a new principal."

    "My First concerns with this school is the safety of my son. I have called the school numerous times and have been told that the harrassment of my school was being looked into. I even went in and filled out a bulling report and again I was told the same thing. Second, my son is in first grade and he said his bored in class because alot of the work he did in kindergarten and if he did not know something the teacher was to busy taking care of the children that were disrupting the class and he could not get her attention. I understand we are not in the greatest location but why treat our kids as scrum bags. This school is better then most in the arear but it is terrible in its own way."

    "if you're looking for a mediocre school that performs no better then the rest of chester upland school district. this school is for your child. after 6 years, the new principal decided halfway through the year that the kids were not being taught phonics for the first 5 years, which ever sleep affect it there state scores for performance. fourth 2011 the students in the school only read at 53 percent proficient, also demonstrated poor performance in mathematics. to be a university based elementary school they're not doing a very good job. the leadership at the school at wagner believe that their performance demonstrate great strides in academics for the city of chester"

    "I am a supervisor of an After School Program in the city, and my concern is that although WPCS has a 5 star rating, help me understand why there are 3rd,4th, graders that can't read. They have homework that requires reading and these students can't get it done because they can't read. help me to help them."
