I see that this web site has not updated their information. There is a new principal at Wimbush this year. Mr. Berrong does not appear to be with AISD any more which is a good thing. I believe many of the school's problems stemmed from his lack of leadership. While Rome wasn't built in a day, I hope this school is on the rise. This school serves a great neighborhoods which is not reflected by ethnic or economic statistics. Go to Zillow and look at the average home values in Wimbush's district. The fact is any parent who was able to get there kids out of this school did. It only took us one year to learn this the hard way. Many transferred to Butler or Pope, private schools or home schooled. Drive around and look at all the yard signs for other schools and you'll see what I mean. BTW, Wimbush doesn't offer yard signs so you won't see any of theirs.

There are so many caring, hard working teachers at Wimbish Elementary. The principal, Ms. Pride, is so positive and encouraging. I love teaching at Wimbish.

Terrible. Ms. Pride has no "pride" in Wimbish and is going to destroy the one thing that the school has had over the years, great teachers.

This school is awful the fighting the bullying i am just tired of the drama. I believe that the teachers pick on my son to get him fired up then they call me with a different story getting my kids out as soon as possible..

WARNING! This school as of August 8th has been put on an unacceptable level! They should have done this years ago. I received a letter telling me that we were allowed to transfer to another school, that transfers would be accepted to Hill of Swift. Wimbish does have some very good and loving teachers, but they can't handle the horrible behavior of most of those kids. One teacher Mr. Friend, the music teacher, stands up to the kids who constantly misbehave! The lunchroom staff, should be fired ASAP! They are very mean and they cross the line regarding how they treat the kids. The disruptive kids run that school, not the staff. I've even had teachers tell me they would not bring their kids to Wimbish.

Extremely unhappy with this school, we are currently trying to find a charter school for our children to get them out of there. The problems are endless. Let's start with the bullying situation. My youngest child (8) has gotten into many fights because the teachers will not protect her. It started last year and we went to her teacher numerous times and nothing was done. This year a new child is bullying her and after being pushed around and the teachers doing NOTHING, we told her to start fighting back. The principal is ridiculous, he has no control of the school at all. The traffic situation out front is also dangerous and parents are constantly screaming at each other and arguing over it. One dad went as far as to rip the side mirror off a mom's car...guess what...nothing was done. Kids run out into the street while teachers stand by and chit chat with each other. This is probably the worst elementary school i have seen outside the inner city. Do not send your child here...transfer to Butler or Ditto if you want them to actually learn and be happy.

We agreed with most of the negative reviews posted here. We continue to hope for other better disciplined schools to call us for transfer. If the bullying continues and our kids are begging to not go to school, we will home school.

I agree with a lot of the reviews listed here. While there are worse schools out there, I was very surprised at how we've been treated by office staff and some of the things I've seen the kids get away with in the cafeteria. It's loud, out of control.. My 1st grade daughter doesn't have enough time to eat, because the higher grades are allowed in the cafeteria at the same time, and they are cutting in line so bad, she never gets enough time to finish eating! She's been coming home very hungry, and when I finally went to have lunch with her, I understood why. There was NO supervision in that cafeteria until 10 minutes after we walked in. My husband watched the principal unlock the front doors to open the school and left two little girls sleeping outside the front doors barely out of the rain.

I Think This Is An Awesome School. Everything Is Great Such As Field Trips But I Think The Kids Should Be Able To Talk More At Lunch. The Moniters Should Give Them A Break!

This is my 2nd year my son has been at Wimbish. The bullying and fighting is out of control and the principle does nothing about it. The teachers have been pretty good but they seem to have their hands tied and worry too much about the taks test. We're moving over Christmas just so he can get a better school experience.
