this school use to be great! till this year when staff has changed. they make it an issue for a older student to walk their younger sibling to class and had my son tell me a teacher came and pulled their hands apart. Not sure what happened since last year some of the teachers seem like they are picking on the kids like bullies. I do NOT recommend this school. Im actually in process of transferring my kids to another school.
My daughter has attended this school since Kindergarten, and even though I wasn't too thrilled about her Kindergarten teacher (I was leaving the Army and we arrived near the end of the school year)...Her first grade teacher is EXCELLENT! If you ever have a child in Mrs. Candance Hankins class, be super excited! She is an amazing teacher who makes learning fun, super easy, and exciting! I love her so much and wish she would teach my child next year. I've never had any issues with anyone in the front office or anyone else. The staff, Nurse (I love her too!), and school counselor are all very friendly and extremely helpful with whatever issue you or your child are having. The only thing I wish they offered was more after school activities...but other than that the school is beautiful, the staff are amazing, and my child loves attending here.
My son has been attending this school since kinder. He will be in 4th grade come August 2013. I am a very meticulous mom. Waldo Pafford has never dissapointed me nor my husband in any way. The Admin, Staff, The principal, Teacher aids, School Nurse, Cafeteria staff, Custodians and The WONDERFUL teachers that my son (students) deal with everday are as my son puts it...THE BEST! We have been wanting to move somehere else, My reason for not wanting to move is not knowing what the other school has for my son. Overall. OUTSTANDINGl
i have been going to this school since kindergarden im in the 5th grade now i was supposed to switch schools but i begged my mom to stay because i would miss my friends and my three favorite teachers ms.harvey,ms.carter,and my current teacher mrs.gamble these three teachers helped me get where i am today so thank all of you!!!
my son attended this school for 2yrs & it has been by far one of the best he has ever gone to. he was pretty far behind when we moved to ga but the teachers worked hard to help him catch up - i did have issues with his eip teacher which were never resolved but the school overall & the other teachers as well dr cottom are great!
My son attends this school. The teachers are very good and the staff at the school is caring and intersted in what goes on with your child. I have had a few issues, but with communication those issues were resolved.
I love this school. It is great. My son has been attending this school since Kindergarten and now he is in the 4th grade. It was an easy transition from his other school in TN. The teachers are great and are concerned greatly about your child's education. The school is well ran and constantly keep the parents involve in the child's education. Mrs. Cottom is an excellent principal. Hate to leave this school.
We loved this school! My daughter was there from 2nd to 5th and my son from K-2nd. All of the faculty were very friendly. They had a great reaing program and the teachers made a huge effort to get the kids excited about it.
I really would like to say I really love this school the teachers there are great. My daughter Cheyenne has been going to this school every since she was in the 3rd grade. She had some wonderful teacher who cared about her needs and wanted her to learn as much as she could. The teachers are Mrs. Gulliume, Mrs. Howard, and now Mrs. A West they are great teachers and I want them to know I appreciate what they have done for my daughter. She is more confident in her work and she applies what she learn in class to things in her everyday life. I just wanted to say Thank You.
I think Waldo Pafford is a great school. I was very pleased when I went there. Mrs. Alexander was my teacher and she was so nice. She also has great teaching skills. She tought me how to read. I wish all teachers could be like her. All of the teachers are really involved and that is what makes a good school. Waldo Pafford is a great place to go to school.
As a parent and former employee of this school, I am extremely pleased with the quality of education at WPE. This quality stems directly from the strong administrative staff - Ms. Cottom, Mr. Cox, and Mrs. Snell. Their leadership provides the teachers with the direction and opportunity to do the very best they can to educate our children. My child loves the teachers she's had since 2000 because she knows they truly care about her, not only as a student, but they also know her personally and want her to well in all aspects of her life. I appreciate and applaud these teachers for their efforts. Keep up the great work Wildcats!
My children have been attending Waldo Pafford for 5 years now and I love the school. The staff and teachers are so nice. Everybody knows everyone and it really feels like family. My son has had some of the best teachers since he has been there. I would like to mention thier names Mrs Addie you are a wonderful teacher so funny and so very nice. Mrs R. Flemming you are a true gift to the students. You always have a smile one your face and my son really cares for you. Mrs. Dasher you are also a great teacher my son loves your attention and patience. I would also like to add the extra activities i.e( school dances, and mathathon and numberous other activities) are always fun and exciting. Bravo WPE!
