All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Welsh has been a great school to my daughter's. The teacher's are wonderful there and really do care about my children. Don't find that very often in Rockford schools. They have been attending since Pre-K and currently attending. Only thing I dislike like is that there isn't really much that they do in the way of programs. IE: Plays or musicals. And when they do have "something" it doesn't seem to be too planned out, like it was just hodge-podged together. Never enough room for parents let alone extra guests like grandparents or aunts. I also wish that they did more field trips with the children. Not just to the Discovery Center once a year because that gets kind of old. Although maybe that has to do with the district itself, I don't know.

I am a parent, of 3 kids. One of my children went to another school, and I was very dissappointed in his education. My other two children attented Welsh, and I can tell you they are getting a great education..

My son currently goes to Welsh. Unfortunately, my husband and I have found our experience with the school and it's administration to be quite disappointing. We do not feel that our son gets what he needs academically, socially or emotionally so we are opting to put him in private school next year.

My children go to welsh school and are in there 3 year there. I also am a former student of welsh. I am the most happiest of all parents to tell people that my children attend welsh, i take pride in our school, teachers, and especially our principal mrs. Alt. She is the best always there to answer questions and concerns of the welsh family. I say family because that is the way the school is its close and like a big family to all who are here attending now, or in the past. Thanks to our welsh family.

I went to R.K Welsh when I was in 6th grade. Overall I enjoyed going to school there. I would say R.K Welsh is a good school and that is where I am sending my daughter. This is her first year.
