My children love this school. The teachers and staff are excellent. I love the current principal, she is wonderful and so involved. They really care about my kids.

We love Wolftever! My child loves going to school everyday. He loves his teachers and all of his friends. Academically he has advanced beyond my expectations. The school grounds could use some refreshing but dont let the fool you. I could not be more pleased with the quality of education he recieves.

My children attended this school for 3 yrs. Their special education program was a mess and no better than a daycare.Tthe special ed teachers were inexperienced, ignorant and uncaring. School did not even have a functional playground. The weakest link was the then principal, Mr. Fernandez.... uninspiring and incapable of leadership. We ended up moving to a different county.

This is a great school! It has a diverse population, the teachers are great for the most part and the PTA is very involved. They have a great art and Music department as well. We have enjoyed having our children go there the last few years.
