My child just started this year through the IB magnet lottery. WIth just a couple of weeks to go, I can say our experience this year has been successful and positive on all levels.

Weddington Hills Elementary is not a great school! The school is only concerned about fundraisers and PTO. Unfortunately I cannot move to another district, therefore my child will attend Cannon next year.

We have a daughter in the first grade and a son about to enter Kindergarten. In the past two years, we have had overall positive experiences. Our daughter's kindergarten teacher gave us daily behavioral feedback, and homework folders were always updated. Her first grade teacher is not as organized though has been promptly available for brief phone calls and has expressed genuine interest in our daughter's progress. Our daughter is reading fluently and can do simple addition and subtraction in her head. The curriculum needs more emphasis on science in the earlier grades, which is entirely lacking. The administration has been helpful and prompt on the few occasions where we had to interact with them.

This school is not a great school in the least. The principal is a lost cause. I wish we had a choice where i children went to school. They know they cant reat parents anyway they wont to bc we have no other choice.

I have a daughter just finishing up 1st grade. Her 2 years at Weddington have exceeded our expectations in regards to continuous improvement in reading, writing, math, and art. She is always eager to go to school. Perhaps she has been fortunate to get great teachers, but we are more than pleased with this school. Only issues so far are a very high percentage of non English speaking students (which can slow down the entire class). We have a son that starts there next year as well.

Yes I do believe this school big time improvement. Seems like school is no interested in academic at all. Only thing I read about in the homework folder is skate night or staff basketball game. I took chance last year to keep my child in this school but no more My child is not going to this school any more. My child third grade teacher was hardly interested in taking to the parents about the child academics. Teachers websites are never current. No weekly news letters are sent home. This school needs new principle who has more academic views.

I do believe that this school has great potential. I don't believe the principal really has a desire to talk with the parents or have parental input. She feels free to allow the PTO 'click' to run the show. The fundraisers are lame. My daughters first grade teacher at WHE was wonderful. She gave individual attention to the kids and to each parent. I felt as if my child were in the best of hands. My daughters attitude towards school changed dramatically [her second grade year]. Now third grade is about to begin. She will start this school year back at WHE. Not my choice. We are moving soon to a county adjacent to this one. Not soon enough.

There is no value of diversity. The school is poorly organized with little leadership from the principal. The administrative team is a tight little clique that is openly hostile to parent interest and input. This school needs a new principal who is willing to substantively involve parents in operations of the school. Weddington Hills serves a community that wants to be involved and has a great deal to offer. Unfortunately the school is closed to anyone who refuses to have a sycophantic relationship with the principal and her lackeys. Teachers in this school are afraid to innovate, because it is discouraged by the principal.

I agree that Weddington Hills needs improvement. I am more informed about the Skating Parties, Staff Basketball Games and extracurricular activities than about academics. The teacher's do not keep their pages current on the website, there are very few newsletters and nothing from the PTO/PTA. We have a long way to go to reach excellence.
