i attended Wedgwood from Kindergarten all the way to 4th grade and i loved every minute of it. I am now a freshman in high school but still keep in contact with some of my teachers, mostly my 3rd grade teacher. As a student i had much respect for staff and LOVED all my teachers and principal! Wedgwood is one of the best elementary school...in my opinion
The school is unhelpful, the staff untrained, the grounds deplorable, and the children undisciplined. Real subjects are not taught properly while movies and books of little value are regularly used. The children spend very little time on actual academics while at school and the homework never amounts to more than a worksheet. They spend all year teaching the children one thing and one thing only: how to pass the MAP test and once testing is over, all teaching ends for the entire year. It is well worth spending the extra money for the local private schools - If you can afford it and if you can get in - most here have waiting lists.
I am pleased with the level of high achievement in this school. I went here and I am pleased to see that when I came back the level of involvement was still high. Acedemic, and behavioral expectations were still high.
