This public school is of a higher echelon than HOOE PARTNERSHIP FOR EDUCATION SCHOOL. I am still appalled by the amount of conflict my child faced at HOPE PARTNERSHIP FOR EDUCATION which is a private school by the principal and teachers.

I am a very involved parent volunteer at the John Welsh School . I have 2 children that attend the school and we wouldn't trade it for any other school. This is a school with a principal that cares ,and teachers that work very hard daily to help keep our children where they are today. Thank you John Welsh Principal And Caring Staff. Iris C. ,Pete,Samara and Alex B.

I am currently a student at J.W and I have nothing but good things to say about this school. Although the school is located in the 'ghetto' and some people may think that we may not do so well contrary to belief we have spectacular scores in the important state tests and the teachers are really nice. even if I had the chance, (which I did)I would not change schools for anything. I love John Welsh School!

John Welsh Elementary is a great elementary school is an often forgotten section of town. It doesn't have a lot of extra curricular activities but children can receive a solid education. The school has also been noted to meet AYP every year.
