    "Wilkes-Barre Academy has been wonderful to us so far! My daughter has been attending WBA since 2011 and I have nothing but good things to say! The teachers are so over the top caring and concerned about your child, just like you would be. As far as the one review below that reads "they are way too heavily involved in selling everything from candy to coupon books to christmas wreaths to to tickets for horse races to raise money. A little too tacky to be a truly classy private school, uniforms or not. " OH PUH-LEASE! Having gone to Catholic Schools myself for 12 years, its all about the selling! We sold everything under the sun. Second day of high school x4 years, we were dragging our chocolate bars home to sell. This is a great school. If you have any questions or concerns, call the school, take a tour, meet the teachers! I just wish more people would review the school, so others could see these few bad reviews are not true, only made to tranish the school."

    "very very bad. My kids were mistreated at this place. The TV is on all the time. I have visited that place every hour of the day different days between 8 and 6 and The big TV is on. I pulled my kids and nothing i could do better. They are in building block and that place proven heaven and kids love their teachers and want to go there.These people took the lunch card for both kids for the entire summer ( Joan) and never paid me for it. I was treated very poor when i went to drop the entry cards and lunch cards. It has been months. PLEASE DONT SEND YOUR KIDS AT THIS PLACE. I am mother of 2 and i cannot say any better than this, I felt responsible to tell whoso ever you are reading this."

    "Absolutely first rate! Very responsible teachers and staff. The children are there for academics, respect for themselves and others, and vision toward the future. This school provides a fantastic foundation for a child's future."

    "WBA strives to provide a strong educational foundation for all children who attend. I believe any school is what you and your child make of it. As a past parent, i can not say enough about the curriculum and how prepared my child was for high school because of this strong foundation. Fundraising and altruism should never be held against a school or its students. We should focus on creating strong leaders for the future and not belittle efforts to teach our children the importance of team work and helping those in need."

    "It is not possible to be licensed by the Dept of Ed if ALL teachers are not cerified to teach. Willkes BArre Academy has all licensed teachers with a minimum of a BS required. Many teachers and administrators have multiple degrees, also many have masters degrees. Because of the accelerated education program some students find the program to difficult and withdraw. This causes comments like the one about one licensed teacher:)"
