    "With the new Waldorf program, parents have lost all rights. The teacher is compatible with the student with no issues, there are pros to the program, but if not, your child will be stuck with this teacher for EVERY SINGLE GRADE, & if you ask to change, you will be told that NO MATTER WHAT YOUR REASONS OR FEELINGS AS A PARENT, changing is not an option. The only reason given is that "it's not the "Waldorf way" or some philosophy about how the entire system will crumble if students change teachers. My child has been sent home with pee soaked pants because he wasn't allowed to use bathroom, is told to shut his mouth constantly, & is in time out everyday. Some reasons he's been disciplined are whispering while lining up, using edges of crayons, drawing a disco ball on his Snow White pic, & the list goes on. Many parents across the country are facing this nightmare as well. I suggest reading the horror stories on the PLANS website. There are nine lawsuits pending for schools who implement this program & not balancing it with parent/student rights."

    "Being a parent of a special needs child can be very challenging especially when intermediate grades begin. At this point you start the countdown for middle school. A strong connection between the child, teacher and parent is critical. I have found it here at AM Winn. My child comes home sounding of idioms or sentence structures. I get the teenagers to google it to make sure he's correct. He is! The rhythm in the deliverance of the curriculum is fantastic. With three different grade levels the class surprisingly runs very smoothly and quietly with occasional outbursts of laughter. We know our children have challenges, however Mrs. Koch always reminds them of their strengths. So if you're looking for your special needs child to excel in their strengths, this is the place. I am so thankful."

    "I couldn't be more disappointed with this school. My son is an excellent student, but in no way was challenged at AM Winn. He was basically handed the honor roll just for showing up every day. He compeleted second grade 5 months before school ended for that year. When he began 3rd grade, we were informed that he had won an award. We went to the school to watch him accept the award, just to find out that they changed the times and we had missed him getting his award. They also sent home a letter stating that they were failing at the "No Child Left Behind" program. Because of that, they said that we could have him transfered to another school within the district. However, thry also told us that priority would be given to students with low test scores. My son was being forced to stay in a school where he was getting a below standard education, and no one at the school cared. My son in now in private school and getting a real education, free from bullying, staff who don't care about their students, and an administration who puts the children first."
