Mr. Rutledge is phenomenal with the kids! Some of the teachers are excellent, and some are not very open to diversity...at all. I think that Mrs. Singletary is phenomenal with the kids as well, and tries hard to connect parents and teachers.

Parents of austitic children be warned...this school does not provide special education for them. You will have to move out of Worth County to obtain an education for your child or have your child spanked and drugged, neither of which is going to help a special needs child. So much for the "No Child Left Behind" law................

We enjoy very much our Worth County school system.. Our southern charm without regard to parents social status or color .. Is the greatest difference we have found .. Our instructors work very hard to set the stage for equality among our kids and I thank them dearly for this effort... However Traffic flow along with crossing guards that are in uniformed "note these crossing guards need to be trained and wearing crossing guard uniforms ... Trained crossing guards are needed at ALL our schools for directing Traffic, helping police safety officers ... Traffic is a nitemare at entrance and exits points ... My wife had a accident some terms ago More needs to be done with our schools traffic flow and with those whom help direct this flow ....

My son's name has been all over the school. His teachers, are great. They have been working with me and the first grade principle,Mrs. Bartell. But the head principle has been non understanding about our son's situation and wish he would do better at this time of need.

The administration at the school is excellent and really care about the children at their school. The teachers are great and know the extent of the trust that parents place on them for the care and education of our children. This school provides a wonderful learning environment for children. If I could rate this school higher than 5 stars, I would.

I had three children who attended WCPS. I had wonderful teachers. Even though there are still a lot of excellent teachers, some of the teachers now have no patience with the children. They get frustrated so easily forgetting they are dealing with little children. I think part of the reason is the lack of assistants and people don't have the same values. They are there for the paycheck. The children need to go to field trips. Children need to be encouraged to be creative, especially in Art Class. They need more than crayons and papers. There should be more staff observing the children in the lunchroom and assist them when they need help not ignoring them and ask them to be quiet all the time. Children need to socialize with each other. I work full time job, but I am concerned. I teach my children to have positive attitude and respect. Thank you.

I think that Worth Primary is a good school with a good teachers and staff. I feel that they do work with you and your child and that has been my personal experince with the shcool. I however feel that they could do better job on how they get the parents involved with school. I feel that the Parent Invovlement person needs to come up with better activites to keep the parents involved. Overall I would say that this is a wonderful school keep up the good work!

i think more parents need to get involved and teachers should make sure students dont pick on or bully each other
