This school is a head of the rest. With there gender specific classes to the style of teaching. Good to see teachers happy to be teaching not just there to collect a pay check. The community is awesome as well my daughter made friends instantly.
I am a parent of a incoming kindergartener and I have been in contact with the Principle from the beginning, she really has been great. We have taken tours and met the staff and everyone has been so friendly and helped us feel comfortable making the transition to elementary school. I like that the rooms are single gender and the principle seems to know almost every students name when walking down the hallway. All the kids give her high fives and hugs. Woerner seems like a great school and I am super excited for my daughter to start!
This school is fantastic! My children have been attending here since preschool and they love it. I have seen a huge improvement since they moved to single gender classrooms. This school is definitely one of the best in the district! I would highly recommend that you visit and learn more about this school before you rule them out for your child.
All three of my children attend this school and I truly love it! The staff make the children feel good and excited to learn. I will admit there were a few problems adjusting to the school the first year, but I never had any of the major problems I have had in other city schools. The learning experience for my children is wonderful, and I could never be more thankful for the work the teachers and therapists do to help my children attain a quality education.
Woerner is way above other St. Louis Public schools! The only problem that I see (typical of this school dist.) is the communication between students and staff, I view it as almost harsh at times. Students are yelled at all the time, I have been told that isn't the case....but yes it is. I feel this happens only becausse the teachers can't find other ways to keep control. This problem is NOT school wide, only in a few grades. The Assistant Principal is not very 'social' with parents or students. The Principal is clearly dedicated to this school and students. That is a huge plus. Most of the teachers are very caring. As with any school, the support staff isn't always up to par but I think that is changing for the better.
Previous writer must be upset about something.. Great school, staff, neighborhood.
The support staff for this school leaves a bit to be desired as does the attitudes of the counselors. However, the overall quality of the teachers have been good and cooperation from Principal and Vice-Principal have been pretty good. Discipline is an issue unless some involvment by parents occur.
Too many kids in one class. not enough encouragement for parents to be involved. children should have after school activities.
