I loved my son's Kindergarten teacher, she really was amazing. However, if you have a child that is Special Needs maybe you should look else where. The school's therapist's are great, but the way the homeroom teachers handle special needs children is horrible. I constantly have my son come home stating that he got in trouble for stuff that he is unable to do due to his disabilities. Moreover ,We have alot of problems with other children bullying our child, and the teachers rarely notices it. There is very rarely any help with my son's class from other parents which is unfortunate. Along with the fact that too many of the parent's seem to complain that their children just "aren't challenged enough." We are definetly planning on sending our child to a different school that is better able to help children with disabilities, along with recognizing that every student learns differently.

We attended this school after having moved and attended many schools. We especially loved the teachers the year of 2011 we were there. Something to note is we had a very difficult time dealing with the office staff. My son was chastised for needing to use the phone because he did not carry a cell phone. I do not feel like they are pleasant and that really does add to the environment of a school.

Our daughter is a 2nd grader at Weber this year and we're feeling pretty happy with the school. Our daughter is not special needs so I cannot comment on that aspect but she has a great teacher and seems to really enjoy her "specials". I will say the curriculum is too easy for her but her teacher is great and is finding ways to challenge her. My biggest complaint is the lack of exercise. They get 15-ish minutes per day of recess and that's just not eniough, in my opinion. To the parent that mentioned they are not allowed to talk in lunch, we have not found that to be true whatsoever. However, recess can be shortened due to behavioral issues during lunch and I don't agree with this practice. Other than that we are quite pleased so far this year. I may report back at the end of the school year but "so far so good!"

A GEM and really is the absolute best elementary school in the area. The teachers are A++ and really care about your child succeeding. The only negative is a male teacher who came over from Zerger...other than that we are very pleased

If you want your kids to see what a day in prison feels like-Weber Elementary is the place to go! At lunch the kids are not told where to sit and are not allowed to sit next to their friends and are not allowed to talk; if anyone talks during lunch then all of the kids loose recess. (The only recess they get all day) The principal never returns your calls and the teachers spend all day telling the kids they are so busy. My daughter comes home with anxiety attacks because she's told over and over and over again that there is too much to do and not enough time to do it. If you want a 6 year old with an ulcer send them to Weber. If you care about your kids send them ANYWHERE else but there!!!!!

Wonderful teachers, great school and fantastic resources for the students. They have the latest technology in all of their classes. My daughter is in Kindergarten and has been excelling in all her subjects. She loves her teachers and is very excited about the curriculum. She loves going to school every day and I love how good the school is about including parents in all school activities. Great school!!

My daughter attended 1st grade, 3rd grade and 4th grade at this school! We have loved every minute of it- so much so that we took her out of a local charter school (which was susposed to be better than the average public school) and put her back at Weber. We have moved out of the area and are so sad to leave this wonderful school. All of the staff are amazing- from the front desk to the teachers to the new principal! Love, love, LOVE this school!!

Love this school, the parent support, the PTA, the staff, and so on! It has everything! New technology (a smart board in every room), award winning teachers, a super-involved and supportive PTA, and wonderful after-school programs!
