My son has been at Wentworth for K and 1st grade. I only have good things to say. His teachers have been excellent!
Wentworth Elementary is a great school. The teachers and other staff are very caring and work hard to make sure the children are getting the education they need to achieve. This school is wonderful.
I want people to know that the staff is one of the best at this school. I have had children and family go all the way thru this elementary school and never did I feel that my children weren't the firtst priority. While giving the children a top education, they also teach children character traits needed to get along in the world as well as encourage self esteem, courage and pride in the students to help them achieve.
This school is great. The teachers were supportive and rewarded the childrens efforts and encouraged them to try even if they weren't so sure of themselves. I love this school.
My child has attended Wentworth grades K-4th. While they do have many fundraisers, we need to remember that there is not much funding form the goverment. Wentworth has been teaching our children for over 80 years. My childs grandparents went to the old wentworth school. They must be doing something right! For everyone that questions the value of this school, I challenge you to give a hour a day to the students and staff of Wentworth, to read with a child, or to help a child with a math concept that they are having trouble with. You will see the love and attention that they share. No child is left behind. It does not matter rather they are 'gifted' or maybe struggling with something. The staff @ Wentworth realizes that we all have 'gifts' and 'struggles'. and they care for each student the same. Who can fault them for that?
This is one of the best schools, clean, neat appearance, wonderful staff!!
I have to agree with the 1st Parent. My child also transfered to this school. I have a K and 3rd grader. I will say my childs teacher was very helpful for my 3rd grader. Also I agree about fundraisers! And don't forget pictures. $45 for school pictures? We are sending our children elsewhere in 06-07 as well. We will be paying alot of $ but I know my children will be learning.
My two children attended the 05-06 school year, as a second grade transfer and a Kindergartener. This is a good school if your kids need a lot of review and drill and practice. If your child is creative or gifted, I would not recommend it. They are very concerned with 'their way of doing things' and are not very willing to think outside the box for kids who are beyond grade level and need more challenging material. Also, whenever I went through my kids' bookbags, I made sure I had my checkbook available. Never before have I seen such fundraising, in addition to other worthwhile causes such as St. Jude's Math-A-Thon and Jump Rope for Heart. I am transferring both children back to the school my second grader came from, and plan to let child number three attend the old school as well, even though it is out of district.
