My Wife and I sent our Daughter to this school this year from a private school. We find that they don't engage her to keep her interest in school up. Also when issues with bullying and student behavior they tend to ignore the issue. We are very dissatisfied, and she will not be going back.
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.
