My son has attended this school for three years. He has had wonderful teachers each year. Today he started school again, we walked into the class and the teacher had in the background classical music on low. It was soothing and the kids were very responsive to her welcome. I knew I had made the right choice of sending him back to this school once again. I commend the staff and principle at WW elementary. Very organized, they work as a team from the office staff to the playground duties. Keep up the great work! MM
I have taught in Snowline District for 13 years, and I could always tell the kids who came from Wrightwood. Well-taught. Well-disciplined. Well-socialized. Good, smart kids. The teachers are friendly, the programs meet all kids' needs, and the principal is wise, there for kids, parents, and teachers.
My son attended Wrightwood Elementry School for 2000-2001 and part of 2001-2002. My son was held back for one year. One day in class while my son was struggling to complete an assignment on time, his teacher loudly asked him, 'Do you want to re-do the second grade a third time?' We did get an apology from the teacher and the principal. However we felt with that level of disregard for a child's feelings from a teacher, it was best to move on.
Our child was at WW for the first year in 2003-03. We found her teacher to be unresponsive to our attempts at keeping up communication. It was also clear that the teacher did not really 'know' our child or our child's academic ability. It was a disappointing year, and we hope the 03-04 year will be an improvement.
