Please, don't send your children to this school. Especially those with special needs. They do not have the funds, nor staff to accommodate Special Education kids. The only school I ever heard of that believed in flunking Special Needs kids and Main Stream ones too....so they could have them again next year.

Woolmarket Elementary The only positive were comments dated 2007....this school is one of the worst. Do not put your child here. They will be treated like red headed step children....


Posted September 14, 2012

Ive heard nothing but complaints on a daily basis in the halls from other parents. This is the worst school ive ever seen. I have 3 children and have moved around several times in several states (military reasons) so i have experience with many schools. My middle child was bullied by others and ignored my the teachers about it, my youngest is now in kindergarden there and his although he is no angel he has started to act out at school as well as home. He doesn't get the attention that a kindergardener needs because i quote 'our class of 27 students & 2 teachers is too large'. They push the kids too hard about learning and just don't seem to care. I can't talk to anyone at anytime (i dont know where the other parents are able to do that) i have to make appointments to discuss ANYTHING. I have a long list of dislikes for this school and am now thinking of taking my child out to put into homeschooling.

This school is excellent! My son is in the 3rd grade and has A.D.H.D. which also comes along with some learning disorders. This school helps him with this disorder. The teachers make him feel like he is just another child. He is passing and with good grades. I could not ask for better! If I could grade this school I would give them 100%. They are excellent! Keep up the good work!!!

The leadership and staff at this school go above and beyond to make sure that the children get a thorough education. My son was in the 5th grade this past school year. In addition to the general classes, he was made to understand the importance of his grades, completing homework, preparing for the tests, and the benefits of good behavior. He has gone to Woolmarket for 3 years now, and we have certainly noticed a difference. Thank you Woolmarket teachers and staff!

I have a daughter who went to this school, I was always able to go to the office for any reason and be greeted friendly and promptly. Any questions that I had to the teachers or staff was always answered. My daughter now goes to Three Rivers Elementary because we moved. It is definetly not the same. I would give anything for her to be back in Woolmarket again. I canno even get a conference promtly with Three Rivers and my child seems to be doing worse than she ever has. My daughter has always had great techers who were willing to help her, even stay after school to help. Woolmarket is the best!

I have 2 children attending this school, both of whom are in I.E.P. I have for the past 5 years always been able to reach my sons teacher or the principal whenever I needed. The office staff have always went out of their way to help me in any way they can and my overall experience has been very satisfactory with this school.

My son has been going to this school for 4 years and is doing wonderful, all the teachers are great. He is a straight a student and recieves the greatest attention from the teachers there. As a parent I communicate with the staff of the school from the begining of the year.

My children just finished their first year at Woolmarket. I was pleased with my 2nd grades childs teacher. But my 1st grade child had 3 different teachers throughout the school year and one of the teachers never sent home anything and would never respond to my notes. Finally at the end of the year she ended up with a teacher she did well with. But for 3/4 of the year we really struggled. I never got an explanation as to why all of this was going. The parent/teacher/administration communication needs to be worked on.
