  • Watkins has some of the most dedicated teachers and administration. The office staff is incredible and always on task. I have 1 child that has graduated from Watkins and I have 2 kids that are still attending Watkins and they all are doing well. The teachers and principal are very involved in with the students. The principal has a very no nonsense attitude. My kids are very safe at this school. The only thing I would improve on would be the cafeteria. Watkins is also a magnet school for language they teach French, Japanese and Spanish :)

  • My son has been a student there since kindergarten (he's now in 3rd grade) and I couldn't be happier! The teachers are very caring and supportive of the students' needs! My son has always done well and whenever there has been a weakness in any area of academics they have always been good about nipping it in the bud so that he can improve. I would certainly recommend this school to any parent for their child. Security is also great there. To get in the school there are glass doors blocking access so you MUST check in first at the office. That's certainly a relief for me.
