Informed me that my son would be starting 1'st grade with no problem, and then the day before school started called to say classes were full and would have to go elsewhere. The secretary was the one who called and had a 'Could give a Dam' attitude. My daughter is still going to be attending the 'Wonder Years' program there causing a headache with having to get both my kids to two different schools at the same time.
Weaver is not good as far as I am concerned. My son was in kindergarden and complained about bulling. Then he wen to first grade and still the same issues. Always by the same kid, no matter how many times we spoke to the teachers it still did nothing. His grades started good and went down the rest of the year. Now we are homeschooling to build confidence again which he had to start with. The school needs a better program for bulling and the teachers need to actually watch the children at recess not stay next to the fence and act as though they are watching the children.
Wow where to start? Well I had two sons in this school one in kindergarten and one in 1st grade. The teachers were both ok but due to following new school rules on how to teach they are not effective. The principle Dr. God! believes she is the end all to every situation and that she has the right to reprimand without parent involvement. She is more concerned with her image to the powers that be in the Springfield school system than to her actual job! She is horrible in her role as principle. She shines when everything is about her! Like this year s Springfield Cardinals game where she threw out the first pitch (it is all about her and her image as something special (she s not!). We pulled out kids out of the school system as they were not learning but were coming home everyday complaining about some bully picking on them. We are now homeschooling since it is more effective and the home school co-ops offer more than the entire public school system does. I rate this school an F in all areas!. during play time the teachers flock to one area near the fence and do not monitor the kids as they are engaged in conversations with each other. ~a concerned parent
My child went To Weaver Elementary for her 4th grade year... IT WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!! 1.THE PRINCIPAL ACTS LIKE A STUCK UP SNOB 2.THE TEACHERS ARE ALWAYS ON EDGE 3.THE BULLY ISSUES WERE HORRIBLE!! 4.HEADLICE WAS HORRIBLE AND THE TEACHERS DID NOTHING TO STOP IT! I DONT RECCOMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANY 4th GRADE PARENT(or any other parents) THIS SCHOOL IS POOR AND DEMEANING!! I DONT RECCOMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE!!!!!! IF YOU DO SWITCH GO TO BOWERMAN ELEMENTARY IT IS A FANTABULOUS SCHOOL!!!!!ITS THE EXACT OPPISITE FROM WEAVER!!!!
Absolutely the worst elementary school my daughter has attended. We moved her out of this school do to bullying issues in the classroom. The principal is rude and actually refused to talk with me about the problems my child encountered. I would not recommend this school to anyone who cares about their children.
The principal at his school practices poor professionalism. She reprimands the students in front of other parents and is non-supporting to her teachers, which make the teachers on edge---not good for the kiddos---I transferred my child out of this school. I have witnessed so much I wish I could share more...
Weller is the place. Weaver is a good school but could not place my child in a room he needed so they transfered him to Weller.
BBD classes are great here. 3 teachers to 5 students. 1/1 almost everyday. The only trouble I have is that the grade work doesn't follow with regular classes. But if you need a class for a BD child this is the school to go to.
