    "This school is one of the best in the state. I have not found a better school is a best fit for my daughters than this school. The teachers are excellent, the parents are very involved and the students are highly motivated to succeed. I love it. Shout out to Dr Crum. Good job."

    "I rated this school as Excellent as it carries an Excellent spirit. The teachers expect 110% which is still needed no matter how high the test score is. How many brilliant minds have we seen not attain their potential as they were not continuously encouraged and had life spoken into their dreams. The principal speaks life into these children and their aspirations. My daughter is a second year student and I am extremely proud of her taking on such a challenge and proud of the teachers for taking no less than a student's best."

    "There is nothing amazing about a school that takes only the top 5% academic performers in Dekalb county and educates them by enforcing rigid military like structure, tons of mindless deliverables and teachers who believe the hype that they're doing something really special. The question which needs to be asked is how many of these top students fail in this environment, drop out of the school and wind up feeling like failures. Truly gifted students should be allowed more freedom, creativity and hands on learning. This school is preparing kids for the military, not for private sector leadership. The teachers are uncaring and arrogant, the parents are deluded and the only thing amazing about this school is the fact that they don't graduate 100% of the amazing students that walk through their doors. Their kids should be the future leaders of America. I defy anyone to conduct a study of their future performance -- whether in HS or college, I'm willing to bet mediocrity... mainly because the rigid discipline they learn here does not properly prepare them to create, invent, heal, build, own....."

    "My daughter is a 6th grade student at Wadsworth. This school is so wonderful. I wish I had enrolled my child in this school in the 4th grade. Dr. Crum has a beautiful spirit and the teachers love what they do. They are so loving and caring. I wish the board would let it include 7th and 8th grades. Dr. Crum is one in a million. Mrs.Lynch, the receptionist, is so nice and caring. This school is the best school there is."

    "We are blessed and thrilled to have discovered this priceless Gem of a school two years ago. Our children had spent 3 years in Dekalb's traditional gifted program where the kids are pulled out of class to spend a hour or two in an accellerated class then returned to their regular [unchallenging] environment. Our kids were complaining of boredom. At Wadsworth (WMSHA) every minute of the school day is engaging. They provide a rigorous academic environment combine with the approach that every child is brillant. They encourage leadership and responsibility, while teaching the importance of compassion and tolerance: they teach the whole-person. The educators are the best in GA: every teacher is gifted certified, most have a masters degree. Each teacher demonstrates their commitment and love of our kids everyday. Dr. Crum's leadership as a principal is un-riveled. Her approach and that of her team is to uplift a child helping them to be the awesome people they were born to be. This school and its staff are exceptional! We'll say goodbye to WMSHA in May 2013 in search of a middle school that deserves to stand in WMSHA's shadow. In our hearts Wadsworth Absolutely Rocks and always will."
