Waynesboro Elementary does not focus on teaching children what they need to know. The teachers skip trouble areas and focus only on T-CAP test scores. This does not help any of the children to actually learn anything. Homework is apparently nonexistent for Waynesboro Elementary School. Very rarely are my children sent home with homework. This is among the poorest school system I have encountered, heard of, or bore witness to. I shall be contacting the school board and Tennessee Education Commissioner, Candice McQueen very, very soon. If at all possible, send your child to another school district or teach them yourselves via homeschooling. There is absolutely zero encouragement for growth and enhancement at Waynesboro Elementary School.
We will not consider moving from Waynesboro because of the elementary school. My granddaughter can't wait to get to school each day. The great teachers and staff somehow manage to teach all the school work as well as having the children constantly participate in gym, computers, art and other activities. They also have the children participate in local, state and national celebrations and spcial events. WES should be rated 10 and is a 10 in mine and my husbands eyes.
I have had the privilege of being associated with the Waynesboro Elementary school for the past 8 years. My first experience was with my step-sons and now with my Grandson. I feel that this is by far the 'Best of the best' from the Principal to the teachers and also the unnoticed but very much appreciated volunteers. I wish that all of the school systems were run like this one so that all children can experience this type of school.
