Truthfully, I feel as if the quality has gone down exponentially at Wiesbrook this year. I am really disappointed, but the things I am seeing shouldn't be occurring at a school rated as a 10 by the community. Our student to teacher ratio Is 20:1 while all other schools in the district average around 15:1. My kindergartener is in a class of twenty six children with no one to assist. Even the best teacher HAS to find this difficult. Even though we are the largest school in the district, the PACE program for "gifted or talented" children has dropped tremendously in the last year, so much so that it now only requires a part time teacher who is expected to teach to multiple, but different levels during the same time period. Wiesbrook continues to have a wonderful PTA with many parents eager to help out where they can, but they need to stop looking at everything with rose-colored glasses. Our school is clearly at risk for dropping down the ranks.

I rate this school as average (academic level), mediocre teachers (with 2 or 3 exceptions). The PTA is strong here, the parents involvement is encouraged. Up to a point, I think the parent involvement is needed in school activities, but from my point of view, I find the parent's involvement at Wiesbrook a little bit too much. My kids went here for 4 years.

Both of my children currently attend this school. We could not have hand picked a better school. The staff is fantastic-completely dedicated to the students. A wonderful atmosphere for children to learn. The principal has always had an open door policy. He is a great leader who has taught the students character counts and has brought a real sense of school spirit. He also knows every family by name. Wiesbrook also has a very strong PTA. We are thrilled with the education our children are receiving.

Great school by any measure. Definitely 5 stars. The culture/atmosphere is that the children are a little more rowdy than another elementary school in the same district I am familiar with. Not badly behaved, you must understand, just louder and more exuberant.

We moved from Glen Ellyn to Wheaton, they didn't miss a beat. Both of our children have gone to Weisbrook Elementary since they were 8 years old and 10 years old. Weisbrook Elementary is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. Thank you Wiesbrook Elementary for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world! One is now in High School Honor Roll doing fantastic and the other is in the 7th grade with High Honors, Wiesbrook is the best of the best.
