This school is not suitable for any child to attend. The teachers do not care and have a low tolerance for children. The principal does the least work to get by. We sold our house to move to a better district just to take my son out of this school. My sons 2nd grade teacher just stopped coming to work and left the class with substitutes for the rest of the year and that was in September. We moved from Overland Park to Kansas City for my husband's job. My son was doing the same work in the 3rd grade at welborn that he did in the 1st grade at Comanche. Please don't send your kids to this school, you'll be doing them a disservice.

So far the teachers are good but the overall school is horrible they do not allow children to be children and their rules are a little outrageous and the supervision of the student are poor.

Welborn seems to have some good teachers overall, but sadly lacking in leadership. The school really needs to close. I have never seen such a poorly run school.

Welborn, does not have very much student involvement. They don't have any skating parties, carnavials, yearbooks *2009*, for the children at this school. I would not approve of any person to send their child there.

My son is now in the third grade, he enjoys this school and I am more than pleased with the education he is getting. He reads on the 5th grade level and his math is at fourth grade. The teachers he has had have been wonderful, they keep me informed.

My son transferred to Welborn from the Leavenworth school district. He is doing very well and has a great teacher. However, I can tell the school has a long way to go in view of its horrendous test scores. I applaud the principal for her determination to improving Welborn. She has my support.
