    "The WPS school has adjusted to new ownership with a new vision, however, the new administrators in place now have ample experience in education and are allowed complete control of the school to run it as they see fit. The changes they are making are growing progressively each day. Many parents are pleased with new meal procedures since during the previous ownership, most students ate fast food everyday, and off campus lunch put more students at risk daily. The security improvements are of utmost importance when protecting our children, especially this day in age and with our social status, so I am unclear as to why 24 hour gated security is a problem for anyone, just as I am unclear as to why a healthier, culinary, allegory free lunch program or a formal dress code is a problem for anyone. My daughters have technology free days and technology time in the classroom. They do not have too much technology as they come home with handwritten assignments and handmade projects weekly. I believe people need to find another place to report such horrid, untrue reviews. Visit the schools' next Parent Social Committee meeting, and get honest feedback about this school from current parents."

    "Unfortunately, this school has gone overboard with the "digitalization" of education. They have digitalized EVERYTHING. The new owners have forced the parents to rent a laptop which costs an extra $700 a year after tuition. Since most of the students have laptops, it has gotten very hard for them to pay attention in class since all of them are on their laptops playing games. The school forced the meal plan on us as well. As another parent has pointed out, our kids are not allowed to bring their own lunches. They have even gone as far as make it closed-campus during lunch to enforce this new policy! Responsible upper-schoolers are not allowed to leave for 15 minutes to go get lunch. The boys are also required to wear blazers on Mondays. Our kids go to school, not work! The new management has completely ruined what the previous ones had. They have made the classroom environment artificial feeling. The new owners are too concerned on making money and squeezing every penny from the parents. Reconsider going to this school because it has totally been ruined"

    "This school seems much more concerned with making money than actually creating a quality environment for students. In addition to paying tuition, the students are required to purchase an expensive meal plan and are not allowed to bring their own lunches. They also have to pay to rent a laptop and purchase uniforms. There is a very limited course of study with few electives for upper school students to choose from. The school seems to be all about appearance, with a gated entrance and a flashy exterior. Inside, the hallways are narrow and the classrooms are small. The boys are required to wear blazers and ties on Mondays, even in the Texas heat. There has been enormous turnover in the staff recently: a combination of people getting fired and choosing to leave. That is never a good sign. It seems that with the new ownership, this school has gone way downhill."

    "Do NOT go to this school! All they seem to care about is making the school look good and making money. They claim to have a great and growing music program, but it seems that they mostly just do theory. You are forced to eat their food and pay for a meal plan even though they don't have a great selection. In my opinion, the school uniforms look ridiculous! Even though they claim to have an IB program, they are still technically not certified for it. This school claims to have many things that they don't actually have and they don't seem to care about student success. I would pay the admissions fee to not go to this school."

    "The negative reviews this school has got are justifiable.This school has some excellent teachers,that were there before the new management took over,but teacher can only work to the curriculem they are given.Students previously did ,math ,language arts ,social science and science every day.Under the new system,we are doing less hours on core subjects.However we now have,P.E ,photography,and drama every day.If your child is not very academic,but loves the arts you will probably love this school.In my opinion this new curriculem is not challenging those who are very academic.Research the curriculem,before hand."
