Wellington Elementary School continues to produce excellent students. The teachers are all great. Very caring staff. Parental involvement is high. Standards are above the norm but achievable.

My daughters love their school! I'm so impressed with the teachers that my daughters have had. The teachers are able to reach out and connect with the variety of students in their classes and keep the school day engaging and challenging. The PTA has done an amazing job of hosting a variety of after-school clubs at Wellington. All of the parents I speak with say nice things about their son's or daughter's teachers. The PTA and the PACE program have been able to step in where funding falls short and assist teachers in setting up their classrooms. All of the staff seem to take pride in their jobs and the school despite the lack of funding for so many things outside of the basics.

PACE is an overrated program at Wellington. PACE kids come together in 1st grade and stay together through 6th grade. The classrooms turn into dysfunctional families. The kids study together and eat together away from the rest of the Wellington kids. There are no opportunities for teachers to separate kids from year to year that don't get along or those who get along too well and exclude others. Classroom atmospheres vary but the root problem of same kids, same class, every year is across the board.

The principal is excellent as is the office staff. The teachers are very solid, especially in the PACE program where they exceed their peers. Parental involvement is intense and makes this school really special. High expectations by parents, teachers and staff make it all happen.

Wellington has been nominated as a nationally recognized 'Blue Ribbon' school. Its Principal, Lew Dickert, is an accomplished professional. Teaching and administrative staff are all very approachable and excellent in virtually every aspect. School offers the very sought-after PACE (Parents Active in Cooperative Education) program, which utilizes active parent involvement to enrich the classroom experience for the children. Student transfer requests (limited) from other schools in the district are always maxed out, a testiment to the school's quality.
