My son has gone to Wolflin since 3rd grade and this is his last year there. I love Wolflin, I think it is an awesome school! There are alot of talented Teachers there and the principal is awesome!

All in all I believe Wolflin is a great school. I just wish that more parents would get involved in the different activities that are offered. All the teachers that my daughter has had throughout her 4 years there have been wonderful. She takes the TAKS test for the first time this year and I believe she is more then ready thanks to the teacher involvement. Those that are not ready are being offered afterschool help and I think that is wonderful.

I feel this school is well academically and focused on the teaching the child. I feel strongly about implementing a program that makes schools follow said rules and procedures in student handbooks, such as the proper contact of a parent if a child is injured. This is my only concern for the safety and care of my child.
