Welch is a great place. The new principal and staff are absolutely great, they are friendly, helpful and open to provide guidance.... you just need to ask. I have 2 girls ( Kindergarten and 1st grade), they are changellenged and they love their school, they feel very proud of it and this makes my life so much easier!... .because every day they are ready to learn more. They have wonderful programs in art, music, physical education, literacy in adition to their regular curriculum. In the parents side I can see comitment from the PTA and volunteers that makes WELCH the BEST!... ILW (I love Welch) :)

My son started Welch from K-5th grade. For a well-rounded school--Welch delivers just that & so much more. The academics can't be compared to. The educators are phenomenal. Each student is individually looked at for their strengths and weaknesses, and the resources to have your child succeed is here. Parent involvement is encouraged. The teachers are superb. My son had unbelievably caring and great teachers. He has learned a great deal. The goal of the school appears not only academically-based, but the development of positive self-esteem, self-respect, respect for others, and self-confidence in my son has always been maintained and nourished. There are teachers from my experience as a parent at this school, which must be commended for their 'above and beyond' approach in all they did while my son attended Welch--Mrs. K Konecki, Mrs. J Matuszewski, Mrs. S Jennings, Mrs. A Strassman, Mrs. K Ruh, Mrs. Johnson, Ms. Ringas--thank you!

My son Started the school this year and has really enjoyed it. This school has challenged him and made him a better student. Very nice building, even though they don't have AC. The staff and techers are well trained and very nice. Best school district in Naperville (DIST. 204).

Welch is a kid-friendly school with a great curriculum. The kids have a great enviroment and a good physical education program. The kids get to join band or orchestra in fifth grade, although the band is a little less developed than the orchestra. The PTA there is great! Overall, Welch is a school that I never regretted sending my daughter to.

This is a quite a nice elementary School. The staff is well trained. Not great in sports training, but the music program is very nice. Kids are presented with a challenging environment and work at their pace.

This is a good school in one the better school districts (District204) of Naperville. The facilities, the staff are very good. The teachers and principal are very accessible when needed and extremely helpful. It would be much better school if Welch provided some more extracurricular sports for the students. Parents need to depend on external third party programs which are often incovenient in timings and also expensive.

I recently moved to Naperville with my son who was nervous to switch in the middle of the year. He has adjusted so well in 2 weeks-and his reading has improved tremendously! I have been very impressed with how well everything has gone and how smoothly the transition went for us. Wonderful school with very outstanding staff! Very impressed and thankful to have him at Arlene Welch Elementary!

We moved into the district this year. I knew that my daughter needed help with reading and they provided it within 2 weeks of the beginning of first grade. She is improving. The parents are very involved, myself included. There are programs in the classroom where the parents go in to teach art and music appreciation. Overall, it has been a great experience, it is a great school.
