I too am not sure how this school got a 7 out of 10. In my book, it is an 11. My child has been going there since Kindergarten (the first year it opened) and it is a wonderful school. The staff is great, they all know the kids and really care about them. The programs they have to help them are great too. The have Citizen of the Month Club and the Outstanding Owls Club, among others that help keep the kids motivated and build self esteem and character as well as give them a feeling of accomplishment. Mr. Mitchell, the principal is great with the kids and works with the parents and staff to help make the school a better place. This school is a 'green' school so it is also eco-friendly. I highly recommend this elementary school for anyone moving into the area...just an added note, the school received an 'A' grade rating for the 2nd year in a row.
The BEST Elementary School in Wesley Chapel. Both my children attend and although I'm zoned for Quail Hollow, it is worth the drive to past two schools to attend Watergrass. Mr. Mitchell, the Principal, is awesome. He is outside during car ride pick up calling out the kids names. The teachers are enthusiastic, friendly, caring and it's a good team, with a leader who runs a tight ship. Lots of fun activities, and a safe, nurturing environment. My experience: K, 1st, 2nd grade teachers are exceptional. It's like sending my kids to a private school for free in Pasco County. It's a well kept secret for us parents. Thank you Watergrass administration and teachers. LOVE Watergrass OWLS!!
Love Love Love this school!!!!!! My child just started Kindergarten...and ever single person I have met is just wonderful!!!
This school is an excellent school. How it got a rating of 7 out of 10 is beyond me. I would have rated it as a "10." Starting with the principal who is very much involved and going on to the staff. They are excellent. My child absolutely adores this school and so do I. They plan so many activities for the kids and the teachers seem to get along beautifully. That is important because in a school where they don't get along, you feel the tension. I can go on and on about this school so I'll just end it here....I LOVE WGES!
The attitude of the teachers at Watergrass make a huge difference. My kids were previously at Wesley Chapel Elementary and I can tell you there is a huge difference between the two schools. All of the staff that I have interacted with are intelligent, motivated and really seem to care about the education of the students. I'm really happy to have my kids at Watergrass!
