Where do I begin? My daughter is now in 4th grade every year her teachers gets worse and worse. Their bad attitudes to their lack of teaching my daughter. She doesn't know how to do simple math and they keep upgrading her. This year she is suppose to attend extras help for math but that teacher has some how been absent almost the whole year. Needless to say she is failing math now because her school failed her. On top of that don't bother do fundraisers they take your money but don't give you what your ordered no one seems to know any informations of the contact information of the PTA so now it's my responsibility to pay everyone who ordered back I'm done with this school.

We have a wonderful school environment for our children, parents, and staff. There are many progressive educational programs in place that help support each and every student. We are also home to Randy Reader.

Waverly Ave is a wonderful school for your child. They implemented full day kindergarten in 2004, and it is wonderful. The literacy program is exceptional. Students can read and write very well by the end of Kindergarten. It truly is a family oriented school. The PTA has won several awards for parental involvement. Mrs. McNair (5th grade) and Mrs. Hart are truly dedicated teachers whom implemented the Randy Reader Program at the school. The students at all grade levels are really motivated by it. There are many experienced and dedicated teachers and some new teachers with a lot of drive and enthusiasm to teach. The school itself has a long and spirited history. It just celebrated it's 75th year this year. The building is modernized. It is well maintained and an exciting place to go for all the children.
