John Weldon Elementary School5

John Weldon is one of the most caring schools my children have had the pleasure to attend. They are not all in high school and middle school and I credit John Weldon with their early education success.
We have spent 8 years at John Weldon and I concur with an earlier review. It is EXCELLENT K-3 for high achiever or under-achiever. But ones in the middle or on the brink, are overlooked. Some of the problems are reflective of public education - arrogant teachers, average students ignored, and at times, over-supportive parents.
I don't care for the principal and it seems to me that they don't want help from the parents. They do want your money though. There are some great teachers. You just get a cold feeling going to the office.
I have had 2 children attend John eldon form k-5 and have nothing but a wonderful experience from the moment you step in the office doors, the secretaries are very friendly and helpful and then you go thru the hallways and everyone greets you with a smile and a hello and we have been nothing but blessed with every teacher that we have had, they all have cared about our children and cared not only about their education but also about their well being! It is time efor us to move on now and we will sincerly miss everyone at John Weldon, they have loved my children like their own! If I had to complain about something it would be about the head principal she does a great beind the scences job but she needs to be a little more outgoing and friendlier to the students and parents
John Weldon is a fine school K - 3 grade as long as your child does not have a reading problem or special needs. If your child stays in their box you'll be fine till 4th grade. 4th grade is horrible. They show no compassion for the children at all and will just tell you and them it is time to grow up! The curriculm is way too tough and your home life becomes a total battlefield with homework requirements! Than you move on to wonderful 5th grade where they kids can be a kid at last and have some fun but it is too late for the parents, the damage is already done.
