Great school! The staff is very nice. The teachers work hard with their students. Our children love it!
My kids love to go to school. The teachers are caring and very helpful. The staff is nice. Go Wild Cats!
I can only guess why they have so many teachers leave each year, but it's a red flag. I have not been happy with the education my children have received here. There seems to be a real lacking of resources...packets and worksheets are the norm. From my perspective, the preparation for the online SOL testing was minimal, and the scores from Weller ES were terrible. Not very pleased at all with this school. And to the previous poster, I asked both of my children what the "PAWS rule" is and they both said, "I don't know what that is."
How seller has a 5 out of 10 in ratings is way beyond me. We have been at seller since the doors opened. And I'm happy to say that we will be renowned for the up coming school year and I couldn't be more happier. Isaw something about no bullying hah my oldest who is now at farmwell now was bullied and nothing was ever done. You have children who can destroy school property and never get punished where is the accountability punish these kids. It shows other children that its ok to be bad not to mention that is takes away frim instruction time i have first hand witnessed this. Teachers teach to tests and god forbid they are thrown a curve ball. We have had a total between my Two kids from 2008 to present three good teachers and this year still remains to be seen I only gave one star because I had to pick at least one nut it deserves none in my book
Wow. People who are writing the reviews that are pointless absolutely don't get it. Has your child told you the PAWS rule? Or Guidance class and Kelso's choices? There is absolutely no bullying and guess what? Theres a happy spirit everywhere in this school. And thats a fact. I love this school.
Call it my child's bad luck, she has had one not so good teacher every other year. The school has way too many new teachers. Speaking to other parents from my neighborhood, many share the same view about the lack of quality teachers. Unfortunately, I have a younger one that will start going to elementary school starting next year.
Not a very good school. Highly disappointed in the way the teachers are. Seems like they lack experience with children. They need a better understanding of a child's needs. My nephew's new school brought to my attention that he needed to be tested for ADD. SW Elementary response to his behavior was disappointing. They said he was a loud child, moves around alot, touches people and told his parents that they need to fix his behavior. The private school he attends now monitored him and noticed he sat still, was quiet, but had problems focusing. Bullying is not accepted and well taken care of in his new school.
This is our second year going to this school after getting rezoned. Last year, we gave school some credit coz it was new and teachers were strugling. But this year, our daughter is in a higher grade and we are finding this school very disappoinnting. The teacher:student ratio is high (28 in our case). teacchers dont have time to check home work. our particular teacher do not send any notes back so there is no connection. We are seriously considering selling our home to move to a better school district or moving our child to private school.
My daughter is attend this school. The teachers are very good, I can see my daughter get improve each year.
We are in our second year of this school. My child is in 1st grade and has a disability. At the beginning, the school didn't seem to be able to accommodate my child due to what I feel was because it was in it's first year. Never the less, the staff were very willing to learn, help and accommodate my child. We have grown together and I am very happy with the school's effort. Everyone from the front office staff to the principal are very personable and always happy and smiling. It's a very welcoming feeling. My child is thriving and doing very well.
We have been at Steuart Weller for two years now. The first year was difficult because it was a brand new school. It just opened in 2008/2009 year and had all the problems associated with a new school. However, the second year has been great. The principal is opened to parent opinion and she has adapted changes that benefit the children. The teachers have challenged both my sons academically and pushed them to excel much farther than the school they attended before. Plus the school has been very accomodating to my son who has food allergies. Overall moving to this school has been a positive experience.
After one semester at this school we realized that our child learned more in kindergarten at Mill run. Due to an unfortunate case of redistricting we were moved to Steuart Weller. The district did not provide for the minimal of activities and the teachers were over burdened and under supported by the staff. Even though Loudoun County is one of the top school districs in the country, we ended up having to pay tuition to send our child to private school.
