My children have been to many schools but no other school has ever come close to Arlene Welch Elementary. The teachers are very attentive to each child's need. They do this by differentiating -by working with those who lag behind and challenging those who are ahead. They also have a zero policy for bullying !!! My children love going to this school, they don't feel like a number but more like a family where all the teachers and staff know their name. I have only praise for this school. God Bless Arlene Welch Elementary.
I had mixed experience. Mrs Borghesi was the teacher in 3rd grade for my for one of my kids. She was so helpful and my kid has thrived under her. She worked very closely with my kid and me. She deserves to be Praised.
My daughter in grade 1 had terrible time with her teacher Whose name I don't want to mention. She kept punishing my child (and other kids) for every petty issues. Other parents who had kids in the same class reached me and they had the same experience. She doesn't give kids any activity to do but she complain, punish and discourage the kids for talking to each other. I don't remember any skill my first grader gained from the school. That specific teacher should resign or retire if she doesn't like to teach for whatever reason!
