Welti is a great school - overall. Children are not just taught - they are respected for their individual abilities and treated with kindness and positive regard. There is no disrespectful behaviors among the children that is left unattended, no disrespect to the adults - which leaves a feeling of content for me as a parent. Each child is supplied with the needed supplies through parent supported efforts to raise money for teachers to have the materials readily available for every student. We have a great principal, wonderful teachers and PTA organization, the lunchroom workers, and support staff are tops. Let's not forget, great parent participation.. and per research, we have a 13 : 1 student teacher ratio, who could ask for more. Thank you Welti !!!

My daughter has gone to Welti since she was 3 yrs old and in head start. I think that this is absolutly the best school ever. I hate that in 2 years she will have to go to Hollypond. She is in the fourth grade and we love it. Welti has some of the best teachers ever and an excellent princioal. I would like to give special credit to Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Wright, Mr. Henderson, Mr. Payne, Ms. Glenda Henderson. They are wonderful people who take the children to heart and will help them when they need it. I wouldn't change schools for anything, and wish that Welti went through the 12th grade. Terra Redding

Welti did not meet our expectations. You have to be in a certain 'income bracket' to be able to succeed in this school. I pulled my children out of Welti and put them in a larger school and they have excelled greatly. There needs to be changes in this school. We do not need teachers like this in the classroom. And the worst part is, the principal stands behind this teacher.

We really like Welti, because it is a small school. At lunch the kids are very well behaved, compared to bigger schools where they are very loud. I'm nervous about my daughter having to go to a bigger school next year. My sons will also go to Welti until they graduate.
