    "Good and not so good. This is our second year here. The school and teachers are great. But my son is in a class with two different teachers and this has been hard for him. The teachers are good it is just hard for him to go between them as he does better when things are consistent. Other parents say the same thing. Maybe it doesnt matter so much with the bigger kids, but when they are so little I think it has been confusing for him. Next year hoping for just one teacher. Everyone is professional and friendly. Mr. Lehmann is a nice principal. We like this school."

    "Why do these problems get so bad that the parents feel that they have no options? I think that the troubled teachers undermine good ones. For example, the teacher who talks about "problem parents" on Twitter should focus her efforts on respectful communication and helping people assimilate. That could go a long way in creating a positive environment for ALL families."

    "It's an overrated school. It is not what others led you believe. It's maybe a tag better than Lincoln Elementary School. I beg you do more research before you make a decision to send your child there. There are teachers that should never became a teacher. They seem to hate their career, life. You can hardly get a smile out out them. They seem so miserable most of the time. . And trust me, that would effect your kid big time. They don't know how to communicate via their messages. Most of the time they are so conflicted within their messages. Another word, they don't know what they want. Additionally, we do most of the teaching at home. They don't teach anything in class. That's why our kids are now doing homeschool. It's not the best solution, but it's certainly far better than Washington Charter. If you have the money to send your kids to private school, then stay away from WCS. I wish Mr. Lehman had an open mind to except the fact that at WCS there are some teachers either have more training how to deal with kids, or they should not be there at all."

    "As parents you try to do you due diligence and make sure your child gets the best education.We were so excited to have won the lottery and to be able to give our child what we hoped to be a prideful school with great teachers and staff. Going to a new school, not knowing the teachers history, You really do not know what you were in for. This teacher has be the worse so far in my child's education. I could not believe the foul language used in meetings, name calling of students and complete unprofessionalism. I am dissapoonted that this childish, unprofessional, selfish teacher would have the discretion to decide my child faith at this school or classroom. The teacher does not know the fundamentals of communication, not only did she have the control to kick my daughter out of her class because she doesn't want to be "monitor" by parents. I am sorry but you do spend more hours in the day with my child and I want to know what's going on and to see the higher up's support her behavior is very disappointing. This is what you call "Bullying" at the fullest. My child is an A+ student, well behaved and all past teachers were grateful for my child and parents like us that care."
