A great school with very professional staff. Teacher very concerned with appropriate curriculum despite large classes and limited funds.
I just moved to the area and my children just started a few days ago. Very good so far, just don't have much to share yet.
This is our 3rd year at Wagon Wheel and we have been thoroughly impressed in every way. The teachers are outstanding! They are dedicated, well trained and communicate openly with parents. The school community is very tight knit and feels like a much smaller school. The parents are very involved and contribute significantly to the school's success. I can't say enough good things about our school.
My child loves to go to schoo each and every day because Mrs. Tyler is the best teacher he has ever had.
My children have been attending Wagon Wheel Elementary since 2001. One is now in 5th grade and one is in 3rd grade. This school is not only ranked number one in the district academically, but I'm sure it also has the best PTA/PTO. The combination of dedicated teachers and involved parents makes for a winning combination. The teachers are quick to recognize when a child needs extra help and also willing to challenge those that are able to push ahead. The Meet the Masters art program is great. Unfortunately a music program isn't available to all grade levels. Currently Kindergarten, 4th and 5th grades have music opportunities. Teachers are allowed to use the computer lab and science lab at their discretion. The view from the playground is pretty spectacular also. My kids love Wagon Wheel.
I am very impressed with the quality of Wagon Wheel. The parent involvment is amazing, the staff at Wagon Wheel has been nothing but professional. And the programs that are offered are varied and interesting.
My son has been a student at Wagon Wheel since kindergarten. He is now in his last year at Wagon Wheel (5th grade). We have had a wonderful experiance. He is a strait A student and has thrived here. Out of 6 years we only had one year that we were not happy with his teacher. She just didnt like him and unfortunatly it reflected in his grades that year. I guess you cant get along with every one! Sorry to be leaving.
This is our first year at wagon wheel. We were told by many people in the neighborhood that it was excellent but we had always been in Private. We are so extremely pleased with the way the school is run, the teachers and their credentials, the academic's taught. Its a blessing right in our own backyard. Highly recommend it. I have one 5th grader and 2 third graders.
This school is awesome, we are new to it, love the teachers, how its run, the academics It is incredible.
I have a friend's son who goes to this school (Grade 2). The teachers are excellent and the curriculum is superb. Extra attention is given to math.
My children came from a private school and began 1st grade a t Wagon Wheel. I have been extremely pleased with the attention each one gets. I fell the teachers go above and beyond making sure each child gets quality instruction on their own level. We had some concerns coming from a class size of 15-2, however the parent involvement and the program the teachers have set up really create a great environment. The teachers and Princinpal actual make an effort to remember all the children and for such a large school it seems very tight knit. Parent involvement is an extremly big part.
After having my child attend both a local private school then Wagon Wheel, I can honestly say Wagon Wheel is much more impressive. The administrators are organized and responsive. The teachers are up to speed with the latest teaching techniques and work hard to communicate with the parents. I only have one request: implement full day kindergarten! So many parents would be willing to subsidize a full-day program. That's the only reason I'll turn to the private school sector for my second child.
The quality of education is great, especially for a school this size! Most parents could choose a private school for their kids, but have no reason to because Wagon Wheel is so excellent.
Wagon Wheel School is most notably characterized by the quality of the teaching staff and the support of and engagement in the mission of the school by the parent commmunity. The opportunity for a better quality education for children cannot easily be found.
