  • Great Principal; Strong Faculty that Cares & is CommittedParent 09/21/2015
    My daughter is currently in the Pre-K program at Woerner. The only disadvantages of the program are that there is no before or after school care for PreK. Mrs. Fenton is a wonderful and dedicated teacher. Her teacher's aide, Mrs. Wylie is also very good.
