My son has a behavioral problem. Rather than working with him he is constantly getting demerits, and being suspended or given detention. The teachers and the school are unable to work with students. A teacher going so far as to tell us she does not have any extra time because her 3rd grade class is too demanding. My son has yet to bring home a grade lower than 90% yet he is constantly accused of not doing his work in class. I can hardly understand how an A student doesn't do any work in class. The school has been dead set on me medicating my child. Every time I say no he suddenly gets in trouble for something outrageous. This will be my son's last year in Tamaqua school district.

My 2 children started Tamaqua elementary in Febuary. My son has a learning disablity. His teacher took the time to help my son and give him the confidence he needed to learn new things.

We just moved to this school district this year and my son absolutely loves West Penn Elementary School. The teachers are all very nice and work hard to make sure each child is achieving at his own level. I would recommend this school to everyone because it is a small school and the classrooms are not over crowded therefore the kids each get individualized attention. My son seems to be excelling in all levels of first grade so I am excited to see how he will take off and spread his wings and fly.

The education that you get at Tamaqua Elementary School is amazing. They teach you everything you need to know to go on to middle school. The staff and education is great. The principles in the district are great. I would recommend this school to everyone.
