My Son attending this school and I loved this. Great teacher/ parent communication. Giving children sufficient homework and making sure their overall progress. Math teacher has this special arrangement that if you feel your child taking more than half an hour for homework to let her know so that she can either focus more on him/her or reduce homework per specific need. PE is awesome, just loving this school, Way to go Wells!!!.
This school is the best i have ever gone to. If you are looking for a school where your kids can excell, come to Wells!! All the students are friendly here, and the teachers are outstanding! Wells has one of the best reputations in California. The extracurricular activites could no have blossomed more. Wells is an exotic flower, come pollinate in it! :)
I could not be more happy with Wells. Our child went to a different school in the past and has excelled at Wells in all areas - academically, musically, athletically, personally. The staff are responsive, truly care about the students, are informed in their subject areas and get students excited about learning. What a gift to have this school in the area!
I have had 2 students go to Wells (have a current 7th grader) and I love this school. I have e-mailed the principal and she has gotten back to me right away. Some teachers, like his math teacher, send weekly e-mail updates on the student's progress. No one has mentioned the band and drama programs which are wonderful and highly acclaimed in the area. With any school you get a mix of teachers which affects your own personal experience -- we have been fortunate with great staff to work with our kids and have been very pleased. They make the transition to High School very natural and easy.
I am impressed with the leadership of the school. Kathy Rosselle is responsive and she and Mr. Martin really are tuned into the students and the parents needs. The teachers are flexible when students have unique learning needs and stretch the students to the best of their ability. My only major complaint is the school outdoor eating area. The school board must find the political will to admit their mistake and fix it! Would they eat all of their lunches outside every day? parent of 6th /8th grader
