  • A school that cares about their kids and works hard with the parents to acheive success. I am proud to say my children attend WPE and my kids love it.

  • One of my kids just graduated from W.P.E. and another one is just starting. This is a really good school. There are a lot of good teachers. The PTA is very involved and dedicated at this school and that is a really big perk. My kid loved being a part of W.P.E. =)
