    "This school doesn't even deserve a one rating. I agree with the parent on this post; the school should have been the first to close. There is so much gross negligence with is school its too much to write about. Unfortunately charter schools have 5 years to mess things up before they come up for review. World Communications is not an academic institution that follows federal an state quidelines."

    "This school should've been the first school to close. The teachers do not submit the children's grades during report period and they do not want them to succeed at all. The dean of student dislikes certain children (he has his picks of the day). He is VERY unprofessional. He tells parents one thing and then changes his story, and still believes it's true. I don't understand how he was able to get that job working with children. He must be related to someone in the school system. I just pray for ALL of the children that attend while he is there. It is sooo sad to see someone DISLIKE children the way he does. My youngest child will NEVER attend World Communications Charter School at all. I don't understand why more parents don't get together and go to Harrisburg to make this school better."

    "Horrible school! Very chaotic and disrespectful school ever! I bet it's worst than South Philly High. Although the teachers are okay, but the other staffs are horrid. I can't believe I attended this school. I thought it would be nice, but now I learned my lesson. "Don't judge a book by it's cover""

    "WCCS is making progress. The school has a new Principal and Assistant Principal. They have been there since 2011! The school has many clubs and spirits activities. I really like my school. WCCS is making moves."

    "HAHA... I went to this school and let me tell you...IT WAS HORRIBLE! This School doesn't even have a principle! The teachers curse and the KIDS ARE SO MEAN! I NEVER looked forward to going to school each morning, the kids are ghetto and rough and I got bullied EVERY SINGLE DAY! I told the teachers...they never did anything. If you don't understand anything in class, they don't stop to explain it. Their attitude at that school is: "OH WELL!" I HATE THAT SCHOOL. Im in eight grade and I'm now attending First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School! I LOVE IT! BUT WCCS....IS A NO!"
