This school is the best!! My daughter is in 3rd grade and has attended since kindergarten. The teachers are excellent, staff members are very caring too. Her little borther is in Pre-K now and has even began to read. They also have GREAT after school programs including dance, ballet, baseball, soccer, etc. Totally reccomend this school!!
The best! We recently move from Central FL and found every one is very friendly. Our son is so busy with homeworks that challenges him everyday. We like the atmosphere that makes you feel close to everyone there. A wonderful staff that keeps the school is extremely clean and organized.
The best school! My daughter is in 2nd grade and my son in kinder. We love it. So blessed to be a part of this wonderful community!:-)
My Daughter has attended the school Since Kindergarten and is now ready to move onto Middle School and it has been an enriching experience for her. All her teachers have been caring and so devoted to their students. She is in the Gifted Program which has been challenging yet fullfilling for her. She is now been accepted to a Magnet Middle School and could not be happier. This school treats all students like family and I highly recommend it to all.
My 4 yr old niece just moved from a spanish speaking country three months ago, she is in Pre-K and with just two months attending this school she has been able to properly stablish a short conversation in english. That is amazing. Her teachers are very nice and she loves and respect them. Whenver I have kids of my own, I certainly will enroll them there.
I absolutely love this school. My daughter is a 5th graders in this school, and it is like her second home. The gifted program in this school is wonderful, the children learn faster. Extra curricular activities are really good, they have dance,cheerleading,tennis,chorus,year book and more. Field trips are common, but most are after state testing is done. Every one is very friendly, and the small atmosphere makes you feel close to everyone there. The school is extremely clean and organized, and parent involevement is amazing. Unlike many schools, this school has hardly no cliques, and has had no fights. All in all, this school is great, don't doubt sending your children here!
I am new to the school with my 1st grader. I just want to say I just luv this school!!!!! I left the other school b/c it had no parent-teacher interaction at all. No PTA, no school activities, this school has it all. And everyone is soooo friendly!
My children all started out at WMES in the Pre-K program. The teacher and staff at WMES are top notch. The school has a very family/friendly feeling about it that makes me and my kids very comfortable. My oldest tells me that she loves the school because of how everyone treats her - with respect, love and kindness. Its her second home and I'm glad she feels that way!
As a parent of twins entering 2nd grade this coming year, I am very pleased with the quality of this school. They have had great teachers who have provided the support that they needed in order to learn. My children have shown growth in all subject areas, but I am especially impressed with their reading abilities. They have not only become more fluent in their reading, but have also developed great strategies to help them comprehend the text they read.
The best! Is definetely the one word to describe this wonderful school. My two children, fourth and first graders love their school so much, they want to stay there for summer camp every year! They both are in aftercare and music and dance after their classes. It is sooooo awesome because these programs are offered within the school and they do not have to leave the premises. Just imagine how convenient it is, not to have to run through traffic from one side of the city to another, just to take your children to extracurriculur activities. Everything is in the same place! We love it!
very organized and efficient, this school provide all the education I need and most important, they care about my childrens.
I am very pleased that my two daughters attend Wesley Mathews. We moved here two months before my oldest was to complete kindergarten, and in just that short time her reading skills increased dramatically. She went from being able to only read a sentence at a time to reading the whole childrens book almost completely alone. The teachers are friendly, easy to talk to, and they make themselves available. I am glad I found this school. My daughter has music, art, PE, and Spanish class.
I approched the school when I was in search of a new school for my son. The staff was helpfull and I life the area.
WMES is a great 'A' school. They just changed Principal this year. My two children have attended since first grade. Parent teacher communication is very important so keep at it. We've had 'teacher of the year' quality teacher relations. Classes are a 'bit'overcrowed. They have a very small Music program with inexpensive flutes. Children get journalism experience doing the yearbook. Picking up the children take 15 to 20 minutes due to parents parking in a no parking zone. Not enough parents walk their children. There are two great crossing guards at 122 Avenue. They have great before & after school care programs. Security is very good. Overall my wife and I were very pleased with Wesley Matthews. We used the park next to it to jog at night. Quite a few people are out at night jogging & walking 'til ten PM. Very safe area.
This is one of the best schools in all of south florida. From the principal, lead teacher and all of the teachers. The detatil and personal attention they give each child is overwhelming. This should be a modle for all schools.
My Daugther has been going to Wesley Mathews since kinder. She too like many other students were identified as Gifted in the first grade and has wonderful teachers every year. But unfortunatley she is in the 5th grade and its her last year. I highly recommend this school. I thank the entire staff too.
I have two children in Wesley Matthews E.S. Both started in Pre-K3 (almost unheard of in Dade County, as most only have Pre-K4). This is one of the best schools in Dade County, no doubt. My daughter is in 3rd grade and back in 1st grade she was recognized as a gift student and has continued on this program to date. My son is in 1st grade now and while not in gifted program, he has advanced tremendously thanks to the wonderfully skilled teachers and staff of this magnificent school. Please keep up the great work!
My daughter has been in Wesley Matthews since Pre-K. She has been in the gifted program since fist grade. She is now in the 5th grade! Our school is by a wonderful elementary school with excellent administration, teachers and opportunities for all students. It is a beautiful school and we are very proud to be a part of it!
This is my daughter 1st year in this school she is presently in 1st grade. I thought my daughter was going to have a hard time because of the school transfer situation she is doing excellent in school very involved, this school seems more like a private school then a public school. I am very happy so is my daughter and she is learning so much and I feel she is so advanced for 1st grade I am very proud of this school and her teacher Ms.Bruce she is excellent I have zero complaints of her and the way the school runs if every school in dade county would be like this one we would have excellent students all around.
