    "The school is big and frantic but I think it prepares children for what big city life workforce is all about. The priniciple, although super tough, really does care about the kids. I guess you can't be too soft when you are running such a large school or it would probably be a disaster. They need to make improvements on how to properly and efficiently get the kids out to recess and anything else that involves free time. Also, like anywhere else, there are a few teachers who can use an attitude adjustment. One in particular, the art teacher. Very good school."

    "My school is too noisy and too large. Not enough, none in fact, attention is given to processes involved in solving complicated math problems. Teachers have too much to do in a short amount of time. More teacher training is especially needed with language classes and math. Inexperienced instructors need more guidance. Parents are working overtime to make up for the deficiencies."

    "This school has gone down the tubes. We've been there for 5 years and it used to be excellent. It just isn't the same this year. No recess, silent lunches, no running allowed on playground. I'm just sick of it. We have to move, I think. It's such a shame."

    "At Walt Disney Magnet School, I have no problems with the teachers but lower grade administration is not helpful at all. Loved this school last year but extremely disappointed this year. It is very disheartening and I'm definitely going to try for different school for my kids next year."

    "WEI enrolled my daughter for Walt Disney I in 2008/2009 year.The classroom teacher was nice,unfortunately the specials teachers were not.I witnessed the art teacher, the tall, in her late 50s,who wears a lot of accessories and long red nails asking kindergarten children hold their hands up, my assumption was " she must be putting stamps or stickers of some kind.No, she slapped each 5 year olds hands with her gigantic accessorised hand.I held back my tears and upon pick up told a couple of parents of that pod. I tried to write this review, but the site hadn't let it post, was kept blocking.I pulled out my child the next year.I still regret having sent my child through the traumatizing long experience. Also saw sub.teacher yelling at kindergartners to walk down the stairs in soldier style, making corners. The pod layout as my friend said it " worse than a third world country""
