Please invent a better IEP program for kids who are struggling. We give our opinions, but the school never listens to our concerns. I think all public schools are terrible. Teachers don't spend enough time with students who need extra help. The teachers just put them in a corner and carry on with the other kids who are on track for their grade level.I wish Union County would bulid a school just for kids who need help or are behind grade level to provide extra assistance.

Compassionate and caring. Learning is of prime importance. Aftercare is available as well as girls' track, boys' athletics, chess club, and Good News Club. Each child is cared for individually and helped along his/her road to success. The staff tries to work with parents to bring out the best in their child.

Not happy at all! The "phase in" Kindergarten program was a disorganized mess. Some teachers are burned out and some should be forced to retire. Carpool line in AM & PM is a nightmare!. Parental suggestions made to staff are brushed off and /or ignored. Moved my children elsewhere and now they are much happier and learning more!

Waxhaw is a 2010-2011 school of distinction:-) Teachers care so much about the students. I agree that the PTA needs more parental involvement. School is doing a great job.

Waxhaw Elementary has a consistent record of being a school of Distinction, the teachers talk to each and every child they have and review that childs skills and areas that need improvement and work individually with each child to master the grade they are in.

We need more bible based teaching to help the children learn that their creator is the one to look to in rough times and not other venues that are destructive to productive lives. Studies have proven that schools that have bible based principals and teachings that honor God have higher academic scores. This is not a coincidence,

This is our first year at Waxhaw Elementary, and I find it to be a very good school. My boys are in 2nd and 3rd grade, and both their teachers are dedicated and passionate about their learning. Ms. Stuka (3d grade) challeged her class so much that my son whizzed through the EOG.

I am a parent of a student at Waxhaw Elementary School. I give the school high marks in every way. My son excelled greatly due to the high quaility teachers and their assistants. I give this school 5 stars. They focus on education and not what house everyone lives in and what they drive and how much money you make. They are the real thing!! Keep up the good work.

School is very welcoming for new comers, but after tha phase you start to find the gaps. There is lack of: challenging curriculum, new teaching tecniques (very old fashion). Teacher and administration very worried about discipline and EOG performance and not academics. A kindergardener is expectec to not talk at lunch, make lines for everything otherwise they will get a good high pitch scream. There is a lot techers with too many years in the same classroom and/or school than needs to be update. Last but not list Mr. Jones (principal assistant) needs to mature and really solve situations not just be a good listener.

School is very clean nice physical environment. However the testing scores at the skill are definitely sub-par. I have to supplement homework or lack there of that comes from her teachers. The teachers are very nice though. I wish they would challenge the kids more than what I see. The school is not all bad, but academics are lacking.

No supervision, my child had things stolen from their desk, seems that the teachers care more about chatting than watching the children out on the playground. Glad my kid's no longer a student there.

We moved here from NJ and we really liked Waxhaw Elementary. My children were accepted right off the bat and really enjoyed their first year there. The teachers seem very dedicated. They need to lighten up on the no talking at lunchtime and breakfast especially if you come in to have lunch or breakfast with your child. Other than that, we were happy with the academics and the office personnel were very nice and nuturing. Mrs. Barden and Mrs. O'Leary are exactly who should be in an elementary school, they are very nice and helpful to new students and their parents.

A very excellant school with an active PTA that works hard to improve the the overall school enviroment. My two boys, one still there ,the other now in middle school, have both improved their reading and math skills as a result of both teacher quality and the inititive from the administration to succeed. A very very good school.
