This school is tremendous. It is blessed with an outstanding PTA, teachers, and principal. The school offers a traditional program as well as a Montessori program. This an outstanding school that will not disappoint! There was some turn over a few years ago, but that has ended. The staff is all high capable and stable. The level of parental involvement is unparalleled.

I would not recommend this school, for many reasons. While my kids have been there, they have had a different principal every year. The lack of consistent and firm leadership has left the environment lacking for both students and teachers. The school does not have an effective discipline or anti-bullying system in place, and bullying run rampant and unchecked in this school. The school counselor is ineffective, and intervention services are not offered by the staff: there is a lack of support for, or by, the many special education services offered in the district. My child's kindergarten teacher left midyear because she could not handle her class. My child was made a target by bullies, and issues were not handled even after multiple meetings. My child was even physically assaulted, and not only was I not notified by the teacher, the principal never returned my phone calls. There are some WONDERFUL teachers and parents at Waukazoo, and I love and appreciate them dearly. However, many changes need to be seen to make this school again a school that I could recommend.

This school is the best! Wonderful principal, extraordinary teachers, fantastic parent involvement! We are thrilled and blessed to have both our children (3rd and 5th grades) enrolled. We do school of choice, which means the kids don't ride the bus but it is more then worth it to transport them to and from everyday. LOVE THIS SCHOOL!

Great teachers at this school. All specialists are qualified and dedicated. What the students need is full access to a media specialist every day. Full art programs, music programs and gym as well.
