Of the 2 years that we have been at this school, there has only been one teacher that has shown that she cares for her students and one that seems not to care if the students learn anything at all, and that lack-luster teacher is a first grade teacher. I am sure that if I could put her name down there would be an abundance of parents that agree. I am highly disappointed with this school and will not be returning next year like many other parents that I know. The only good thing about this school is the PTO!
This school is a joke. The principal is horrible. She talks about parents to other parents and she caters to a certain student body. Parents are pulling their children out of this school every month due to the lack of education taught by lazy, rude teachers who again cater to a certain student body over another. Please take your child to another school where he/she will receive a great education, not be bullied and will not be targeted by teachers and staff.
This is a lovely school with excellent academic and extracurricular activities. The teachers are top notch and in my opinion this is one of the best schools in Wheeling...with Tarkington a close second.
2 years later, my opinion of the school has changed greatly! Instead of teaching to every child's needs, the school has become focused on the bilingual. My english speaking, american born children have suffered greatly. To the point where I have removed them from the school and placed them somewhere where I know they will get the education they so rightly deserve ( at a major cost to my pocket book), as much as the bilingual children. The principal has also lost sight of the big picture and is instead worried about her friendships with certain parents.
The principle of this school is useless. She was NEVER able to assist in any problems we encountered. Her most famous line for three years now is 'I FORGOT'. Not acceptable. The teachers at this school need to worry LESS about the classroom size (last year 22 students and the year before 23 students)and more about the cirriculum. yet I am forced to send my precious son back to that horrible place until my house sells. The only advice I have is DO NOT MOVE TO WHEELING IF YOU FEEL YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT. There are several good schools quite nearby.... Good Luck!
This school teaches to the children. They work hard at determining needs of each individual child and supplying those needs. Caring dedicated teachers and a wonderful support staff make this school great!
The entire staff at Field school is a pleasure. They helped my children make a wonderful transition into the school there when we moved from Indiana. The teachers really care and are motivated to support our kids in their quest for learning.
