I do not recommend working at this school with the current administration. They will not only make you feel worthless as a teacher - they will make you feel worthless as a human being.
Overall a very good school. I would rate it above average in most every important aspect.
Wildflower is an excellent school! The teachers and staff truly care about the students and will do whatever is necessary to help them all be successful now and in their futures. The students are consistently above or at district and state test averages, showing the dedication to excellence that students and teachers have. My children love their school and their teachers and are always excited to go to school. The school is on its way to the top and the sky is the limit!
I am very impressed with the academics that wildflower teaches my children. The teachers seem to have a way with teaching my boys stuff that I didn't think was possible at the age of 7 and 9. I have always felt very welcome and invited into my children's school and also very informed of my children's progress of their strengths or things that need work. I believe that the between the Mrs. Godwin, Mr. Andrick, Mrs. Cobb and all of the teachers as together as a team they have made a huge positive difference and impact on my children's future. Over the past few years there has been many changes to some of the kinks and since then I wouldn't dream of having my child in any other elementary school. If I had to make a couple suggestions it would be to give the children healthier lunch's, longer lunch breaks, not make testing so stressful for the children and another recess for a break from doing so much work throughout the day.
I have a Kindergartener at Wildflower and couldn't be any happier. Every staff member, principle's, teachers, front office, lunch room help, cleaning help, and everyone between, makes each and every student & family feel comfortable and welcomed. Wildflower also has different and fun things for the kids to get involved in, for instance today they had a pig race for kids that sold at least 15 items in the fundraiser- of course myself and youngest daughter went & had a good laugh. Not to mention they are a blue ribbon school and focus on education first but have fun while doing so. I am very thankful for this school!
This school is okay, some of the teachers are absolute rock stars, they're amazing, kind, thoughtful, and just lovely. There is one, though, that I found to be undermining (she never listened to what I asked of her regarding MY child), she hurt his feelings telling him that "his work wasn't good enough" because his "coloring was messy." Regardless of the fact he's just now out of 1st grade. The principal is slightly lacking in how she interacts with people, she seems very shallow and fake even though she is very kind. The vice principal is amazing and shows genuine concern for the well being of his students... I'd talk to him rather than her (principal) any day. Overall, the school holds their "great school" rating above anything else, even if that means making kids (6 year olds) literally sick with stress because they are getting ready for testing. So if I had to say a few words I'd say "friendly staff, but really only show concern for how they look on paper, they really don't care about the students or their well-being."
This is an awesome school! The teachers are great and the administrators are super!! Everyone is very welcoming and is great with students. Academic excellence is the standard at Wildflower and they are tops in District #2!!
Academically this school is good. On the other hand the teachers do not have good social skills. My son went to kindergarten here and I was not happy with his homeroom teacher at all. His teacher picked favorites and my son was not treated fairly. Nothing was ever done about an IEP he was suppose to be put on. Lets just say, your child will learn a lot but will not be treated the way he or she should be. My child will never go back to this school again!!!!!!!
If you want to be told that your child needs to be retained as opposed to being taught this school is for you. If you want to hear constant excusses for lack of teaching this is the school for you. If you want to be treated like an idiot this is the school for you!!! I moved here and every parent that I have met that is envolved with their child's education have pulled their children from this school. The head principle rarely returns calls or emails; she will have her incompetent staff do it for her.
we love this school!! they worked with us for my sons speacil needs.. at first they were not able to provide his speech that he needed. so the school and district footed the bill for a private speech teacher! parent involment is wonderful, seems like every week a school event that involes the parents and familys is going on..just a few examples.. movie nights, RIF nights, and well just all kinds of thing. i love there no bulling policy. and the way things are taken care of quick when a problem happens.. the staff and teachers are just wonderfull! i feel welcomed every time i come in the door!! a great school for any child! all the schools in Colorado Springs should take a page from this schools book, and become more like them!
The cooperation we got from the entire school system in getting our son into Head Start was amazing! We had home visits, testing... everything our son needed.
Would not recommend the Head Start classroom, I'm pulling my child out.
We have had a terrible experience with this school. The academics are nothing to boast about and the level of commitment to special needs children is almost entirely lacking. Their answer seems to be to tell you your child is severely disabled and needs a psychiatric facility. As far as we can see there is no effort to meet the parents half way to work out a solution.
Academic programs are sufficient, but nothing spectacular. Administration seems to be blind to bullying, however.
