- a
Welchester's current principal has little to no effective communications skills. This causes problems to get way bigger than they need to be or simply swept under the rug and ignored.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
When my son was physical attacked by two middle school students on Welchester school grounds, the principal made no effort to identify the boys or witnesses until I got the police involved.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The principal has no leadership or communications skills. From my research, as far as I can tell, she's never spent a day in the classroom as an actual teacher. I'm convinced the only reason she is a principal in Jeffco is because they have a serious shortage of good people.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Welchester has some great teachers, like Mrs Jones, Mrs Applegate and Mrs Archer. All of whom are teachers who were there before the current principal's reign. The school has lost some good teachers since she became principal.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
It's hard to fight bullying when the office staff is rude to adults as an example to children. Children learn more by example than curriculum.


Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
Doubtful because that takes a partnership with parents, and parents are treated like they're an inconvienance.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Effective leaders don't hire an ineffective secretary.

Develops character: Neutral


- a
I've met some wonderful children that go to this school and some real snots that have regular run ins with the police. The difference is the parenting, not the school.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
I'm not sure the secretary gives teachers messages. If so, my child wasn't valued enough by the teacher to return my calls.

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
I have had a very difficult time getting a straight answer about how this school approaches homework. From speaking with other parents in the neighborhood, the parents spend an average of 20 minutes to 1 hour doing their child's homework for them.
