I was completely disregarded as a parent. My wishes on my involvement were ignored. My complaints were dismissed. I was patronized and lied to. Confidentiality with the counselor is nonexistent and the teacher openly disregarded our discipline. My child was in Pre-K so I pulled her out of school and we moved out of the TISD just o avoid having her start kindergarten there. On her first day of school i witnessed another teacher SCREAMING at a crying kindergartener for not listening when she was only lost and confused. If you are an involved parent, good luck... your options are limited.

we are finishing up our first year at this school- I have one 5th grader and one kinder, both are doing well. The only complaint I would have is when my daughter is starting to slip behind in her grade I would like to know but other then that all is well. My Kinder has an amazing teacher and his love of learning has truly been driven by her, I wish we could have her every year ha ha

my kids went here four years and I was so glad when we moved. some of the teachers were great. but my kids needed a little more understanding. kids are capable of doing more than what u assume. they will always amaze u in what they can accomplish. we had to fight to get alot of rights for our kids that we should not of had to do.

All of the faculty are helpful and very much respected by the children. Each of my girls are well known around campus and it's a great feeling to knowing that they are so loved by the teachers and faculty at their school!

My sons attended Wake Village 30 years ago and now my grandsons have attended there. My oldest grandson transferred to Wake Village in 3rd grade, far behind in his reading skills. By the end of the year, thanks to Ms. Morris, he scored commended on his tests! He also suffers from a birth defect that affects him socially. Both of his teachers and the school administrators, responded quickly to his needs and did not allow any bullying of him by the other children. I only wish that the school he attends this year was as concerned and caring as Wake Village Elementary!


Posted April 30, 2010

Love this school, both my kids have gone there. We moved out of district but chose to keep our kids at WV. All the teachers know their names, treat them with respect and are very vested in furthering there educational experiences. Many of the teachers have become friends over the years because it's hard not to like someone who gives so much to my children

This is a two thumbs up school. I know most of anything my child faces or does in school. Great parent/teacher relationships. This school has gone out of the way to make sure my special needs child has the best education & does the best that can be done. Great extracurricular activities, academic programs, & so on. I've never been so pleased with a school, as I am with Wake Village Elementary School & The Great Staff. I always feel welcomed by anyone & everyone, whom I've come across. I just wish my schools were this great. If you are looking for a school for your child, so he/she can get the best education, this is it.

This school is absolutely wonderful! My son has attended here since Kindergarten and loves it. We are moving to Florida and we are both sad to leave such a great community of teachers and parents alike. The school encourages parental involvement and treats each child as an individual. Our son has been blessed to have such an outstanding 3rd grade teacher. We'll miss you Mrs. Pierce! You can't go wrong with this school. Academic expectations are set high but, they also encourage fun, friendship and self-esteem.

My family has been very pleased with Wake Village Elementary. The school has provided a positive and safe learning environment for my child. The school has an outstanding staff all around & the student's test scores (EXEMPLARY!) are a reflection of the hard work that all of the staff and teachers put into each school day. The classrooms are a great balance of fun and structure and the school is very welcoming to parents and family involvement. We are blessed to have a school such as this that is determined in maintaining such high standards for its staff and for its student body. The Fretwell Family
