I think this is one of the best schools that I have had experience with in the PUBLIC school systems of Calhoun County. During the 4 years my son was a student here, I feel MOST of the teachers were well qualified and educated in the subjects they taught. Specifically, one teacher knew how to capture his attention and get him motivated with reading. Now he reads everything he can get his hands on. 2 years later, she did the same with math. AWESOME! With the current principal at the helm, I know rules and policies will be enforced (students and faculty) to the best of his ability. This is a rare and good thing for ALL except the few that have a problem with authority and prefer to live by their own rules.

My son is in 6th grade at Wellborn, and he loves it. He has been at this school since 3rd grade. He does so well. he's been on the honor roll every year. The teachers really care about the students. It makes me proud to know my son is a Wellborn Panther!!

Our oldest son went to the school from K-6th grade. He loved it! They really care about the children there. Wellborn is a very close-knit community and the love the teachers have for the children is apparent. Now our youngest has started kindergarten there, and we couldn't be more pleased. We are proud to be Wellborn Panthers!

This school really lives up to the NO STUDENT LEFT BEHIND moto. They have the best staff a mother cold ask for. The students do better then any school I ever went to. They are great and very helpful and they treat every student like they were the only one in that place. I love this school and I hope my children never have to go anywhere else.

I went on the 4th grade field trip to the state capitol on Monday, May 23, 2005. It was a well planned field trip. I had a good time with my grandaughter, the other students, and adults. It was a great learning experience for the students as well as myself. I really liked the 'moo'seum and the planetarium. It was my first time on a travel bus -- it is so much more comfortable than the school bus. One suggestion for the bus - the students should have a limit as to how many times they can go to the bathroom. I think it was a play area for the students. Thank you teachers for caring enough to take students on a field trip of this nature. Nastajja's grandmother, Donna Roberson
