Did you know that Maple Dale & WHA have been sister schools for 10+ years?
A few facts about Winton Hills Academy:
Current enrollment is 400 students, preschool – 6th grade
99.2% of their students qualify for free/reduced lunch
The school does not have any support from a PTO of their own
4th-6th grades received an “A” rating in math and reading in 2014/2015.
Their building was built in 2005. It is beautiful, clean and bright, with fun paintings on the walls, smiles on children’s faces, and passionate teachers.
“We are giving the children the experience of a middle class school education in a lower class world. Then they can choose what they want for their lives.” Dr. Tina Russo, Principal 1998 -2015
