It's a good school but it could use some resources to help some of the kids that are falling behind, like tutors. As a Parent who works full time and also attends full time school, having the extra resources available to my child means a lot and that's just not there. I feel as though my child, and many other children I know (according to their parents) are getting lost in the cracks and are falling behind where they should be due to a lack of resources. Please help our school... The communication line between the Principal and the Teachers/Staff could be improved as well as the down line to the parent as well.
This school is and has been failing for years on state testing. The teachers and staff regularly yell at the children and have poor management skills. I wish I could give them a zero. Worst school my child has ever gone to.
They have an excellent reading program.They have good afterschool activities for the students.They offer A+ for students.
My kids have been goin to waimea elementary for 3 years now and the love it the also are doing good.
