My child has been at Walt Disney for 2 years now & I couldn't be happier. The teachers are very involved with the kids & the school. The parents are highly involved with the school as well. Walt Disney is an all around great Elementary school.
We moved here from what was rated as a 10 school district in Orange County. Walt Disney is far better than the school there even in the affluent neighborhoods. We were so please not to see the school enclosed with chain link fence and wire like it was a detention facility. Walt Disney is so clean with a nice appearance which the student and families can take pride in. Not to mention the quality of education offered. There is extensive parent involvement here and extracurricular activities to enrich my children. The teachers really put in the time as well. We receive e-mails from our kid s teachers at 7:00am which tells me they are up and doing school related work hours before the kids arrive. They are also around well after school to meet with parents and prepare course materials.
We moved here from a great elementary school in Michigan in August of 2011, and could not be more pleased with our experience thus far. Academically, our children are receiving as good, if not better education from what we had before. My daughters love their science class and music instructor, as well as their regular teachers. The support and guidance we have received from teachers and staff have definitely helped make our transition to this area a positive one. The PTA has done a fine job providing activities for families as well. In addition, our new principal this year is so kind and involved! No complaints here. We will be at this school for a long time due to our large family, and look forward to enjoying this wonderful community.
WD has some really excellent teachers but a few that are not and just protected because of tenure. THe new principal is doing a good job but really needs to rein in the pta and fundraising. He seems to have no control over the events. The auction is more of party for the volunteers then a real money making event. I think they could make far more and drop the party. Most of the volunteers dont even pay to attend the party. More families would be involved if it wasnt so clicky.
Walt Disney has a new principal who is fully engaged with the children and is extremely involved with the parents, students and teachers. The staff and teachers at Walt Disney provide great education for the children with a kind, caring and respectful attitude.
We have three children that have either attended or are attending. WD is a great community for those that stay involved with the teachers, community service projects and fund raising. Both principal leadership and fund raising have improved the last few years. A great place for kids to learn and grow.
