We sent my daughter here for preschool and had nothing but trouble with her teacher, the principal and the assistant principal from day one. My daughter fell down and scraped her knees so bad blood had dripped down her entire leg and was dry when I picked her up after school. Her teacher told me she could not watch all the kids and besides if she was hurt my very shy four year old daughter should have told her. The next day the teacher left her unattended alone in the bathroom because she did not want to wait for her and took the students back to class without my daughter. She was left standing in the bathroom crying her eyes out until an older student found her and took her back to class. She had the audacity to say the class was just next door and she told my daughter that! No one seemed to think there was anything wrong with this behavior on the teachers part. The teacher also does not work well with shy children either which we were very concerned about. My mother is a teacher and she works with and understands shy children very well. We pulled her out of that school and have been happily homeschooling her ever since. Beware of this school, their low test scores speak volumes!

As a former teacher, turned stay-at-home mom, I had high expectations of both my son's school and his teacher. As the school year approached, I had the normal anxieties that parents have as their children start a new chapter. Not only did Wieland meet our expectations, it well exceeded them. My son's teacher was exceptional as was the entire Kinder team. I was impressed with both curriculum execution as well as activities available to students. Perhaps the thing that impressed me the most was the overall kindness and care I felt throughout the entire year. The staff is terrific. With everything that is put on teacher's plates these days, I am so thankful to be a part of a school that is able to balance the demands of the state with quality instruction and love and encouragement of children.

I was worried about sending my child to this school as we have lived here for a few years. His time came to go to school and he has had a wonderful experience and has great teachers to work with. I feel he has learned and progressed tremendously, and enjoys it too.

My daughter went to this school for 3 years and I had to pull her out of it. Maybe it was just my luck of the teachers I had to deal with but none of them seem to be very motivated. I'm sure it didn't help that a lot of the kids where not well behaved but even with that I was not pleased.

We moved here from a very small town and have been at this school since it opened, It is hands down the best school I have had the pleasure of being apart of. From the principal to the janitors, they all make us feel at home!!! Pride, Honor, Determination.... Wieland Wildcats Rule!!!!

We moved here from another school in the district because we were not happy with it. Weiland School is wonderful and the Principle and staff are great and really nurture the children,....giving them all opportunities to be unique and express themselves. They incourage parental involvment, and It seems that they really care for the kiddos!

My family is renting in this area, here from Tucson. Our son is in first grade, all but one of the first grade teachers have decided to have the kids switch classes which seems to be working well. Being involved and being able to speak with the teachers helps alot. I am very happy with this school. Everyone really works together. I even see the principal out some days directing traffic.
