    "My child was treated unfairly. My child's teacher's (my child was switched twice) was unfair. My child was not taught properly. I got in trouble for trying to get the information I needed for my child to succeed. The teacher yelled at me. I reported her and not much happened. A teacher should not act like that. The next teacher expected my child to know things I did not know my child needed to know because the previous teacher would not tell me. I took my child out of this school at the end of the semester due to the unfairness. My child has missed a lot of school due to being treated unfairly from this school. To the point where it is messing up their attendance even for being sick. Plus since being in another school I see just how much work this school puts on their kids. The work is beyond hard for them. The teacher did tell me he was doing 3rd grade work in 2nd grade to help with test scores. They are shoving school work down their throats. He likes the school he is in now so much more. This school says they are a good school and they care but they do not. They only care about test scores. I do not recommend this school at all."

    "This school is "hometown charm" at its best! My daughter attended here from kindergarten through fifth grade. The teachers take a personal interest in the success of their students. Extra music, art and computer programs add richness to their education. The principal is devoted to the school's success. She knows every student by name, and works with families to make sure that each family feels welcomed and valued at SWE."

    "Everything about this school is FIVE star. The teachers, the office staff, the paras, the students, the custodians, and the cafeteria workers. The principal knows EVERY (400+) child's name and home situation. You won't find this Principal in her office much, she is always in a classroom, walking a student by the hand down the hall or wiping tears from a crying kindergartener. I have been in SEVERAL classrooms during "teaching" time and everyone visit has been impressive. Anyone that says this school is less than awesome needs their head examined!"

    "I went to this school for 6 years, I loved it there and unlike what the parent who submitted their review on October 21 2011 this school was by far the best school I have ever gone to. And also the teachers deserve the credit for the schools rating because the teachers have to teach the children so it really is both the teachers and the students success. We did have recess but it stopped at 4th grade because by the time your in 4th grade you shouldn't need a recess. Over all the atmosphere was great and the kids were under control. All of the teachers I had were very nice and so were most of the children."
