Windermere Blvd School 5

When my husband and I 1st moved to the Amherst district, we (in a way) felt slighted, since Smallwood (the other middle school) had a higher school rating. However, after reading several positive reviews we thought it best to keep an open mind. I must say, we were very Impressed! The school and staff are very caring, and concerned. The teachers are always open to meet with parents and discuss your childs progress. Also, we felt very blessed to find a school with such diversity to help prepare our kids for the real world. I would recommend to friends and family!

I wrote a positive review of this school when my boys (twins) were in kindergarten, now they are entering 4th grade and my opinion of this school remains very positive. My boys are challenged everyday to be good citizens and students. The teachers are excellent, they work extremely hard to be sure that every child gets the most out of their day. I really can't imagine a better public school. My hat is off to the aminstrative staff and teachers for helping my boys as well as every other child reach there potential. If your wondering if this is a good school, please believe me, this is a great school!

Excellent start for any child. The school is very diverse unlike a lot of the suburban schools in this area. The staff is very freindly and caring. I have two kids that attend Windermere elementary and honestly I have nothing negative to say about the school.

I had an earlier review removed so I will post another. My son entered Windermere in the 5th Grade after transferring from Hamburg Schools. He has special needs and I feel his teacher Heather Rogers did nothing to meet these needs and was condescending towards my son and myself. I would not recommend this school.

Windermere is a school where every staff member is focused on the children. The atmosphere is supportive and nurturing, enabling the kids to work to their full potential. I have seen my son and the children in his classroom grow in so many ways, not only academically but also in their character development. The focus of the school and our children in one of inclusion in this diverse environment, where every individual is respected and supported. The Windermere community is doing it right and as a parent I am both proud and incredibly grateful to be a part of this outstanding school.

This is my son's 3rd year at Windermere. He started there with the UPK program. I have been involved with the PTA for all 3 years and have found it very rewarding. I recommend contacting the VP of Membership of the PTA. She will respond promptly to your request.

If you re a hands-on parent, this is not the school for you and your child. Windermere takes a trust me, I know what s best for your child approach. The staff is very condescending if you ask questions. District personnel ignore complaints and do not return phone calls. I submitted my membership to the PTA months ago and never received a response.

My daughter is in the 3rd grade and has attended Windermere since Kindergarten. Windermere is such a diverse environment which I absolutely love, the teachers really work beyond expectations (they are really their for the students), there is such a huge parental involvement which is excellent to our children's learning experience and the lines of communication between school and parent is always open. Overall, I feel truly bleseed to have my daughter in a great school and a safe and diverse environment.
