School Official Point of View

Here lies the unprecedented formula for an academic foundation rich in character, faith and knowledge. We offer a stellar early childhood education beginning with children as early as six months old. Our curriculum builds to meet the needs of students in Elementary School and continues to prepare our Middle School students for top high schools in the area. With class sizes small enough to offer personalized instruction, qualified and experienced educators, and core Christian values, you and your child will feel right at home.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The teachers and staff are very good at handling the inter-student relationships. They teach respect and Christian values.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
The smaller class sizes give the teachers the opportunity to know and help the students on an individual level.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The new Head of School and teachers care about the students and their educational success. Safe, caring learning environment.



- a
I have two students attending. They are having a wonderful educational experience. They are doing well in academics and enjoying athletics.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
The discovery program combined with small classes, individualized curriculum allows students of all levels to thrive. There are kids requiring special attention on their learning differences being educated right next to those with advanced learning. The amount of respect that all students show each other allows those requiring special attention to do so without embarrassment.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The school, administrators and teachers focus and daily reinforce character, honesty and respect. I'm impressed with how they deal with conflict resolution by not ignoring but working through it with the children.



- a
The school seems to have gone through a transitional year last year, but persevered. The academics are strong, teachers are caring and campus is large and safe. Classes are small enough for individual attention.



- a
My family has been at Wesley Academy for 5 years. We have had a wonderful experience with the staff and other families who attend. Our daughter is growing academically, spiritually, and socially. Her teachers are always willing and available to talk with us and communicate her progress. We have made many friendships with other families and truly feel like this is a loving and supportive environment. I would recommend Wesley Academy to other families looking for a great school in West Houston.




- a
Teacher retention is at an all time low. They are not retaining the good teachers meanwhile keeping the teacher that should not be retained. Additionally, their is a small clique of parents on the board and also on PTO who control the school and it's not a healthy environment when any concerns arise. It leads to issues not getting resolved successfully as said persons are extremely defensive. We were there for years and it just got worse. They couldn't keep a head of school either.



- a
In spite of some issues earlier this year, the teachers and staff have been committed to our children in making sure that their education was always on the fore front and undisturbed! My children are happy, well adjusted, thriving students at Wesley. I am apalled at the parent review who accuses the school of stealing her child's support money! We were present in every single meeting and not once was it mentioned that we would get reimbursed! When the possibility of the school closure was announced, they said if parents chose to withdraw from the school, they would not be held to their contracts, period. I think it speaks volumes that even when we were given that option, only one family left. Wesley families are a close community. We love our teachers and staff and that love is reciprocated!
