Mrs. Destree. She really is a great, kind and caring teacher. She makes things fun for her kids and builds a personal relationship with them

There is a 4th grade teacher who is amazing, otherwise, horrible. This is probably a funding issue however

Amount of homework: Just right

I have personal views on homework that is against homework. There is none. that's fine, but there are no projects either.

They could literally care less. There is no conflict respolution between kids, the curriculum is easy and not challenging. I also found out my child had a 125 IQ after I pulled him. Obviously not challenged

Develops respect: Strongly disagree

You can get respect if you're a parent who blames other people for their children's behaviour. Overheard "I yes I know my child throws things, but it's up to the principal and social worker to nurture him."


Witt Elementary School
Develops empathy: Strongly disagree

If you feel yelling at a child until they cry empathy? You get screaming, or lack of discipline for behaviourly challenged kids. No inbetween.

Develops honesty: Strongly agree

The principal literally will not, and can not follow protocol for discipline. She threatens video of incidents, yet will not show them when asked. She makes decisions based on wether she likes a child, or is afraid of a parent, not what's best for a child. The principal has the integrity of a bull terrier.

The principal's complete incompetence, and inability to follow simple protocol, paired with mean, nasty teachers creates a haven for behaviourally challenged children, especially ones with parent's with an inability to take responsibility for themselves. Not fun!

Very disappointed in this school. We immediately enrolled our child as soon as we could into a different school and have been much happier. There was little to no homework and the bar is not set high whatsoever. The communication to parents was horrible. If you want your child to pass the bare minimum with absolutely no initiative to excel in life, enroll them here.

There is little communication between staff and parents. Witt lacks the ability to work with children who need help beyond the traditional learning environment.
