The Wetherbee School is a great school. My son has been there since kindergaten and the staff has been exeptional. They have helped my child go from a difiant, aggressive kid to one of the most helpful kids in school. My son was diagnose with ADHD a couple of years ago, the Wetherbee teachers took extra time to come up with a special plan to fit my sons needs. I thaked each and everyone of them for their help and support.

The Wetherbee school has been an excellent school over all. Both of my oldest boys went there and I felt that the teachers there do care for their students education. Now I have my youngest one and the help he get there with his education plan is beyond excellent.

I think the Wetherbee school is a great school, The teachers, administrators, paras,and everyone else.They work very hard with all the students. I have 3 children that attend the wetherbee, first second,and third, and I must tell you I am very impressed with the quality of work they home with and what they have have learned.When they first started attending I thought the academics might be to much, but they've done great.The academic program is very strong. As a parent you really need to stay on top of thing so you can help out when needed. They do have a band, which is very nice. it would be nice to get some other music programs started. As far as parent involvement, I am on the PTO, and we are lucky if 5pp show up. We do this for all our kids, we need to work together!

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
