It's an ok school if your child is an average student. If they're below or above, you may want to consider another school. The principal is only for the teachers and not for the students. And, some of the new teachers are not good! Actually, really really bad! These bad teachers will naturally make the great rating start to go down. There aren't many bad, so you may never get them or you may, like us:(
For those who don't know, Williamsburg Elementary is a brand-new K-5 school that took the place of Coultrap Elementary. Williamsburg Elem was completed in 2008. The new building is wonderful! Bright, clean, and modern, along with lots of TLC for happy kids and staff. Great teachers, great kids and involved families. Very strong academic, art and music and PE programs, computers/technology, fantastic accelerated program, also wonderful special needs programming. Principal Dr. Julie Dye - only female PhD Elementary School Principal in the District and we are happy to have her! Strong, welcoming and fun PTO, facilitating great events throughout the year such as field trips, author visits, family programming, after-school enrichment (kids' clubs), and so much more! I would highly recommend Williamsburg Elem. to anyone looking for a great school!
I attended Coultrap from 1996-2002 and I was a high school helper for a third grade class this year. I cannot say enough about the quality of education that Coultrap provides. It's atmosphere is welcoming and parent, teacher, and staff relations are strong. The PTO is what makes Coultrap such a wonderful place to grow. As a student I gained so much from the A&E program led by Mrs. Potazcek. Overall, just a wonderful place for your child to learn.
