I have two kids at Wesley (Kindergarten and 2nd grades); I am VERY satisfied with this school. The teachers are very personable and very concerned about the children's well being. My sons love their teachers. My kids have excelled more than what i expected while attending Wesley Elemntary School. They will definetley attend this school for the following year!

I'm displeased overall with the quality of education, teacher support for grade 1-3. The administration does not focus on overall child. The improvement is the phone communication the school has set up to inform the parents of upcoming events that take place at the school.
