Our child began attending Wellstone Elementary fall 2014 and we have yet to be impressed even with the school year ending soon. Wellstone Elementary has no desire to hire a commendable administration. My spouse and I have had multiple encounters with the office staff and each time, we have been met with people who stare at us as if we are invisible. In addition, we have witnessed a school staff yank our child s arm unnecessarily when my child ran up to me even though the class TA saw me and gave permission for my child to come to me. We understand that a lot of students who come to Wellstone come from low-income and non-English speaking families; however, we still expected the best from Wellstone even with it being a Title 1 school. This knowledge should have no effect on Wellstone trying it s best in providing a comfortable atmosphere for families. The only thing we enjoy about Wellstone is our child s teacher. Other than that, Wellstone does not provide respect for parents who actually do care about their child s education. We are glad to be transferring our child to a more competent school district.

Poor Administration! Principal is highly judgmental and very unsupportive. I loved the school with the administrator back in 2004-2011. After that the school went down hill, my child's awesome teachers began leaving as well. This made me have even less faith in administration. I pulled my other children out of this school as well due to administration...not because of the teachers. I love the teachers! This school needs some restructuring of administration. Get the old principal back!

I am glad my child have great teachers. They are very nice and direct to the point. They make me feel like my child is in good hands "educationally". But the problem and conern I have here is the safety of my child. The front desk staff need to take into consideration that its very important to let the teachers know right away when parents call in to pick their kids up. It's happen twice that my kids been drop off at the bus stop. I had to really struggle to get their in time. This second time cause quite a stir, the bus driver was upset, I was frustrated, and the staffs were clueless to what happeneded.
