Academically a very good school. My son was previously in private school and this school is at or slightly above his previous school academically. Your child will have the best in this area. However, I am not impressed with the school's policies or general attitude. It allowed racial slurs to be directed at my son under the guise that it wasn't his ethnicty so it was ok. It wasn't until I discussed how inappropriate that was that the other students were punished. Many other policy items and attitudes that reflect little common sense. All and all the attitudes are difficult to get past and not the values that I want my son to learn.
My daughter has been at Wolford since Kindergarten and now she is a 4th grader. All of her teachers have been wonderful. The art/music/pe teachers are great. My son with Autism attended Wolford for his 4th and 5th grade years in the STC unit. Mrs. Howard and Ms. Martha are truly the definition of what it means to teach with your heart. Love them and we still visit them every year with my son. Principal is very hands on and runs the school better than any principal I've ever seen. A+++++ school. Would definitely recommend to special needs children/families and regular learning children. Love this school. Also, Mr. Chapman has been very kind to both of my children.
This school is good. Their math is pretty advanced-leveled. However, I have heard by my daughter that in their 5th grade classrooms, they are very strict, and once the class had half of their recess off over 2 minutes or so of talking. This is a decent way to get the kids to stop talking, but definitely not fun for the kids
What we currently do is: 'Specials Class' which is a choice of Music, Art, or P.E., we also do Science, Social Studies, Reading, Math, Lunch and Recess. A full day of school is from 8:00 - 3:00 PM. I am currently a student of Mr. Chapman's class. We also have in 5th grade: Mrs Higgins, Mrs Vetterick, and Mrs Megelich.
We've sent all of our kids (3) to Wolford since it opened in 2000. From day 1 through to today we've had nothing but great things to say about the staff, facility, and quality of education that our children have received. Each year the school has actually gotten better -- always raising the bar for itself, earning national awards yearly including U.S.. Department of Education "Blue Ribbon School" status. Parents are engaged with the education of their kids at Wolford and the staff has created a nuturing yet challenging learning environment. With two now in high school at McKinney Boyd and one still at Wolford we clearly see that the foundation set at this terrific school is preparing our kids to tackle whatever challenges they choose to take on in the years ahead.
This school is a very nice and wonderfull school. The teachers are great with the kids and they all have fun with there job too.Iam a current 5th grader and have gone to this school for along time! Hope your kids love it as much as i do!
5 Stars..........We love this schoo!!!!! Our grandson was in private school in plano, and we feel Wolford is even better...Thank You to the Great Group of wonderful people at Wolford. Ken & Ginger Joirdan
This is a very well run school. The entire staff works as a team to creat a wonderful learning environment. The principle 'Roy' is taking on a wonderful newly created position within Mckinney ISD and he will be greatly missed. I was very pleased with his team work and commitment with not just his staff but the parents and students as well. The school's music,art and physical ed. team are absolutly fantastic and it shows thru the students on a day in day out basis. Parents are highly involved and encouraged to be a 'hands on' group as well. This is not just within the walls of the PTA but in all activities at Wolford. The importance of good work habits and attention to making wonderful grades is highly encouraged at this school. Joy my daughter was blessed to be a student at this school last year. Sadly we are moving
