Wonderful school, goals for academics are clear and support is readily provided. Two of my children attended this school, the educational requirements at times appeared heavy but with a slight adjustment during off time we noticed leaps and bounds of achievement in conjunction with consistent comunication and heeding requested recommendations froms the school. Child and parent involvement is strongly encouraged as it should be, a school can always use additional participation but overall appears steady. Parents, you have a mix of working class parents in blue and white collar jobs and also a steady click of stay at home moms.
The academic programs are wonderful. The teachers do a good job, but are not likely to participate in PTO activities. Extracurricular activies are decent. They have band, orchestra, 5th grade chorus, 5th grade play, art squad, turn off the TV week, drama club, and talent show. They also have family fun nights and an out door class room. Like any volunteer organization, you have 10% of parent volunteers doing 100% of the work. Anti-bullying program is clear and clearly enforced. Principal is wonderful and on top of responding to concerns. Unfortunately the principal and part of the staff will be moving to the new Willow Lane school in our district. Next year will be interesting.
The academic programs at Wescosville are very solid. My child's teacher is very motivated and helped make her transition from another school less painful. The only 'extracurricular' I am familiar with is the gifted program; the gifted teacher is excellent, but overworked, and I wish there was more than 2 hours a week of gifted instruction (this is an issue at the district level, not the school per se). Parent involvement is high. Anti-bullying programs and policies are clearly communicated (both to parents and students) and enforced.
