Weaver Elementary School 5

I have had two kids go to Weaver and I loved the education (academic and social) that they received. The school has a very diverse student population which prepared my kids for their future wherever they go. They have grown up with kids of all skin colors, varied academic levels, and a multitude of first languages. The staff @ Weaver truly cares about the kids. The parent community was welcoming, caring, and supportive of staff and student needs. The only "negative" is the building itself (needs updates) and is very full (500 students). That is a direct reflection of the district needing more funding (levies). The school staff does the absolute best they can with the space they are given.

My son attends kindergarten here at Weaver Elementary. We have moved here to the area just recently and I've experienced great schools with the most friendliest and most welcoming staff in the past, unlike Weaver. I have nothing good to say about this school but only a few positive things. I take my son to school every morning and pick him up everyday after school. All the staff there seems to be annoyed with everything and majority of the kids. Breakfast is between 9:05 to 9:15, and with all the kids in line waiting for food, by the time they settle down to eat, school starts in 5 mins. My kindergartener has literally five mins to eat before they're rushed to class. The principal is very nice and greets and say hello- that's the only positive thing I've experienced here at Weaver. Everything is so unorganized and I never know what my child will be learning in class no matter how many times I had requested for it. I can't stress how much I miss his preschool teacher to the staffs and how they're always on top of their priorities always caring so much about their students. My sons kindergarten teacher is definitely not the most respectful person either. Poor experience here!

My son is in 1st Grade at Weaver this year and I have nothing but wonderful things to say. Last year I dropped off and picked him up from school every day so I was able to meet most of the staff. They are all very caring and responsive, anytime I bring up a concern it is quickly addressed. I am very confident my child is receiving an excellent education in a caring, supportive environment.

My husband and I are very pleased with how well our daughter is taken care of at school. She attends the before and after school program and is in full day kindergarten, so she faced a very big adjustment attending school all day. It was a bit of a bumpy start and she still has good days and bad days, but the staff is always kind and makes sure to inform me of any issues. She really likes her teacher and has been learning something new almost everyday! I'm amazed at how much she's grown and learned in just the first few months of school. I'm also wowed by how much other parents are involved as well. With both parents working full time and raising 3 kids, its very hard to find time to partcipate and volunteer for things at school...but events we've already attended have shown a great amount of involvement from other parents and shows us that even just a little bit of time can make a big difference. The principle seems to be very involved as well as we personally met her at the open house and two other school events we attended. She really made our family feel welcome at the school.
