The principal is horrible and lazy. If your child is being bullied don't bother asking her for help. I understand she bully's the teachers which makes it not a good environment for students. Run away from this school as fast as you can.
Mrs. Martin (4th grade teacher) changed my son. His personality developed over night while in my class. She is funny and fun and made the whole year great! My son came to her class and actually wanted to come to school for the first time in years.
According to the Jordan School District, students are not to have homework till they start Junior High. If teachers don't give homework how do they expect the students to be in a good study habit when they reach Junior High?
Even though the test scores are high at this school, there is a huge amount of students that are not doing their best. The only reason this school is doing so well is because of the high number of students.
When a student is sent to the principals office the principal sends the student back to the teacher. When the teachers say you'll go to the principal's office the students just laugh. When the teacher cannot get no support, the students have no respect.
Students are not learning honesty, integrity, or fairness. There are assemblies with the 7 habits, but the teachers are so overloaded with having to teach the curriculum, they don't have time to teach these things. The principal is of no help.
We love Welby. I am so pleased with the principal, assistant principal, teacher's and office staff. The parents are very involved and I am happy my kids go to school there. We also love the dual immersion Spanish program they offer. I am not a big fan of year round school, but you get used to it.... Especially when it's such a great school. Welby is a well oiled machine and when you have been at other schools that don't operate as well you really appreciate it! Count your blessings if you are lucky enough to go to such a great school!
