Waller Elementary School 2

We had two children who attended Waller Elementary up until the fourth grade. There are a couple of teachers who go out of their way to help the students but are hampered because of ridiculous city and state regulations. Do not be fooled by some of the "scripted comments" on here from teachers because this school did not do anything to help my children. We had the same issues with the "prison-like" environment and we would get multiple updates from our children daily about how a child said or did this to them or to a teacher and nothing happened. I don't know how many times my children came home hungry because of the lack of time they receive during their lunch period!? We stopped letting them get lunch because we kept getting over charged and since the kids weren't able to sit down and eat, we started packing the kids lunch every day and would re-use any perishable item the next day. My only other distaste for this school is their lack of focus on education. If you have never heard of the LEAP test, or Common Core, please take a few minutes to research it. There should be no reason why the students should focus almost all of their school year focusing on a test.

The teachers and staff go above and beyond to help your child! My son has dyslexia and they are just wonderful in helping him learn and do the best he can.

Waller is a GREAT school. I have read the comments and I can't believe how some people has put their issues into words. They have Great Teachers at the school. They are caring and over sincere about the children. Parents need to give the teachers standing applause because they make sure they're dress, fed and beside their education gets plenty of hugs before they leave from the school each day.

Waller Elementary School is a great school with AMAZING teachers. They are always friendly and helpful and they do everything they can to promote a family environment for the students. Three of my children attended Waller and they were well-prepared academically and they also have many wonderful memories of the time they spent as a Wildcat.

Great improvements under the new administration! Faculty and teachers are really there for my kids. School is newly painted, updated, and welcoming! We love Waller! Needs more parent involvement though.
