Our children have had a wonderful experience at this school. Both the classroom teachers and "specials" teachers are outstanding and communicate well with parents. The kids pick up on their collective enthusiasm, which creates a great learning environment. The principal is quite accessible and a good leader. I can't say enough good things. As for 5th graders lunch period or the cafeteria as mentioned previously,..please...see what it's like at your "new" school.

HORRIBLE. Just HORRIBLE. If you haven't already, smell the cafeteria! It smells like a dump! And the poor 5th graders only get their lunch at 12:40-1:00! What kind of school does this to kids?!? The teachers, especially the art teacher, are so lackadaisical! All this school teaches is how to do well on ISATS. I saw that the teachers would yell "VOICES OFF (insert grade level here) " when the kids wouldn't even talk! The music teacher here is all play and no work. How sad. We have had a few good teachers here. I am glad that we are moving out of District #308.

I have had three kids attend The Wheatlands. They have had excellent teachers and all have been prepared for junior high. They have nice friends and I've met many nice parents. They welcome parent involvement, both in the classroom as well as in the PTA activities. They value art and music, and the PE teachers care about the overall health of the students.

We moved mid year, my daughter started K, the school, teachers, and parents were all wonderful and welcoming. My son started school the next year, I then had two children in school and felt super about the education and care that was being taught and given. Super library/reading center!
