  • This school has had the potential to be a wonderful school. Unfortunately, you have brought in poor administration with are very unethical and unknowledgable about education. This poor choice has given them the power to get rid of good teachers and pushing away involved parents and smart students. As long as this admin team remains my child won't be attending GWCA.

  • I'm currently a student at G.W.C.A. I've been at the school for four years now.I kinda like the school. Some of
    the special programs are nice.
    The school has some very minor problems(as dose most schools)but I bet with a little more help and money the school will be fine.
