West Columbia Elementary- The teachers are great, easy to check on your child anytime, great library and PE. The lady who worked in the office when you checked in or called was awesome this past year. On another note, getting the principle to work with you because your child is being bullied is not going to happen. Teachers have helped with the situation but it seems like each year, the bullying is getting worse. This campus is a pick and choose which students get attention and education and I believe it should be any child. Have they ever considered the bully may have a problem of their own?? No. Did they help with my child being bullied?? No. As I stated, the teachers helped a little but when the problem was not getting solved and I spoke with the principal, it was as if she didn't care.

Amount of homework: Not enough

The grading system is not ABC until 4th grade I believe, it's either they do good or they don't. Last year, they only got 1 sheet of homework per week. I believe with a normal grading system and more homework, the children would do better.

My child was having issues with his work. Going up to the school helped a little then I noticed the main problem was bullied. This made my child not want to go to school or do his work. He felt like the school failed him not taking care of the bullying situation.

The bullying in this school is unbelievable. The teachers try to help but it seems as if the principle could care less.

I love that WCE still feels ike a small town school. As a parent, I am welcome at the school at anytime during the day. All of the teachers are friendly to the parents.

I choose West Columbia Elementary over any other Elementary in Brazoria County! We moved to the district just so my daughter can continue to go to the school. They are very tentive to the kids & I feel that my child is safe attending.

My grandson was in kindergarten last year. There were 22 kids to one teacher, teacher had no help, wish they had a teacher aid to help. My grandson progress was more then I expected. No telling how much more was possible if the teacher did not have to stop to correct problem kid. And at time my grandson did his share. We only had one meeting, what I would call a PTA meeting. wish they had more. Do not think the PT program was up to snuff. Hope the first grader teacher are as good as the kindergarten teacher were.

My child attends West Columbia Elementary. I am not very pleased with the school. The school does not offer educational activities during the day. The school does not offer qualified tutoring for before or after school. The children do not have extracurricular activities to participate in. I do not feel that my child is receiving the education that he is entitled to. I do not feel that the teachers are qualified to do there job. I have not seen any parent involvement at the school.
