Wauconda Grade School 5

We transferred our daughter into Wauconda Grade School from an alternative private school and have been thrilled with her progress. The principal, staff, and her teacher were very welcoming and she seemed to feel at home almost immediately. The children are also very welcoming and friendly to their new classmate. The communication from our daughter's teacher is like nothing we had experienced: two newsletters a week, daily class work to see what she's learning, and homework that allows us to give her extra help. The projects like the new Literacy Fair are fun yet challenging. She also participates in "Girls on the Run" (after-school running), which has been a very positive experience. The school uses a lot of differentiation, which has been great for our daughter who struggles with math. They also subscribe to many great online services for at-home extra practice. Coming from a private school that doesn't use tests, grades, and standardized tests, we were worried that the public school would see our daughter as a number and a liability, but the opposite is true. We are now receiving the "private school education" we wanted in our local public school!

My daughter attends this school and has had a fantastic experience so far. Her teachers have been very attentive to all of the children's needs. They are quick to identify potential learning hurdles and communicate that to parents in order to perform corrective action. It's a very diverse school with a huge focus on anti-bullying and being respectful to everyone. The only reason I didn't give the school 5 stars is because the facility itself is old and can use some updating. I'm not sure if the school is dirty or if it just really needs to be remodeled, but the nurses bathroom had black buildup around the toilet base which doesn't scream "health" to me. I sort of felt like I was in a gas station bathroom.

I wish my kids can attend to different school. The rate is very low, staff should think about it how to change for better and much higher score. ............
