    "I would like to know what is going on inside WCCS. This is the second principal that left the school...QUIT. Are our children safe there. One nta did PICK on my child and I ask my child EVERYDAY how was everything. I think the school needs a more professional staff, even the Ceo of the school. Also, they need to care and treat the children the way they would want people to treat their children. Us as parents need to talk to our children more and ask about the things that go on in school. If we don't protect our children, who will???"

    "The review by the substitute teacher is spot on. I will not return to teaching at this school. Students, particularly the middle school through 10th grade are completely out of control, with no respect for any of the adults in the building, including those from "climate and culture." The teachers and the new staff are trying their best, but, with a population that has no interest in their own education, their efforts are feckless. We can't use computers, or have any enriching materials in the classroom because the students purposely misuse and destroy them. Any student I had in my class interested in learning during the first semester transferred out by the second, leaving only the obnoxious, infantile ignoramuses behind. This school is no better than any of the regular district schools, and in some ways, sub-par to many. I wish they could revoke the charter now, so I could collect unemployment and stop having to medicate myself to get through the day."

    "World Communications is a horrible school. I worked there as a substitute teacher. The students are some of the most disrespectful children I have ever worked with. They have a failing discipline system that does not address student behavior. Throughout the day, you could hear teachers screaming for the students to quiet down. The school leadership is also extremely disorganized. The Principal does not have a good relationship with her staff, and is extremely rude. I was so glad to secure a full time position at a private school. These Charter Schools are terrible."

    "Worst school in the world. I graduated in 2012 and I would never reccomend this school to anyone, they were so unorganized, took our senior dues, never took us on the originally planned trip and stole our yearbook money (never got a yearbook) the staff are a bunch of pervs always flirting with the young MINOR students. disgusting school overall, I really hope it gets shut down."

    "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."
