My son is a 5th Grader and we recently moved from a Summerlin school called Jacobson to Wilhelm. So far, from what I can tell, they are doing a great job. My son is happy, they have a great PTO who helps organize many family events such as Literacy Night and the Picnic Lunches that occur every month. This is a great event that I have not seen or heard of elsewhere in the Valley. Granted, this is a tougher neighborhood so it took my son a bit to adjust but I am pleased.
The teachers are terrible. They talk awful about the students and other parents. Especially Mrs. Weir. I wish I could send my girls to another school. Even though I have brought it to the principals attention, nothing had been done. There is only a handful of good teachers. Very sad.
This is the worst school ever!! My son was a transfer in the middle of the school year and the nightmare began... This school had fights from day 1 kids being jumped, bullied and teachers that were consistently on the cell phones, walking out of the classroom while the are teaching students due to the disruptions from other kids that get sent to the office and all they did was return the student to the classroom.
Worst school ever! Staff and Principal rude, unprofessional, and allow a lack of discipline that is appalling! My daughter was punched by a little boy the first day of school, shoved by one the third, and had two other altercations by day four, went to office to resolve and found other children from her class BEGGING not to have to attend (all for similar reasons) - was told Principal would call me, she did and proceeded to justify and then yelled at and over me when I told her there is no justification for this happening to my 8 yr old and that the school needs to be more proactive then reactive. I will be moving my child a.s.a.p, she isn't able to learn in this environment, nor is she safe.
It was a horrible start this year. Administration and staff were in two different worlds. Parents ranting and nothing,no explanation but contact the county. This school is so over crowded. The language barriers do affect the students . Finally they extended the kindergarten class to full day after half the year was over. Over 36 five year olds to one teacher in 2 1/2 hours was wasteful time for parents and students.
This school is horrible, the staff is inconsistent. There is a huge communication gap within the administrators, at events it seems unorganized. There are always older kids who do not attend there hanging out on the campus and I see many young children wondering unsupervised.
