Welcome to W.C. Handy School

  • Welcome! Thank you for visiting our website.  I feel extremely fortunate to serve as the principal and to contribute to the W.C. Handy community where we place a high priority on quality teaching and learning, character matters and children are our biggest asset.

    The faculty and staff at W.C. Handy Child Development Center are dedicated to maintaining high expectations so all students can reach their full potential. Our goal is to provide exemplary educational opportunities for all students. We have a host of talented, capable teachers who strive to give their best each day for your child.  We also benefit from outstanding support staff always ready to assist students, parents and each other.

    We strive to maintain a safe, positive, and caring learning environment.  It is our goal to continue to make student learning our highest priority and maintain W.C. Handy's tradition of excellence. Parents are encouraged to join us for one or all of our involvement opportunities throughout the year.   A strong school/home connection helps ensure we all do what is best for children. I look forward to seeing you this fall.
