My daughter's in the fourth grade and she's went to Waverly since PreK and we have loved every minute of it!! The Teachers, Principle, Parents, cooks, even the janitors are very nice. I wouldn't send my daughter to any other grade school!!! WAVERLY ROCKS!!!

Waverly is an awsome school! The small size allows teachers more one on one time with their students. Everyone knows each other. The parents are encouraged to be involved in all activities. Our sports teams are not always winners, but the kids who participate are given the chance to play and learn. Many of these kids will not have that opportunity once they reach junior high. Our students are taught the basics and that winning isn't everything. The violin program is fantastic! The addition of PreK has been wonderful! The academics seem to be at the proper level so that our kids are not behind when they reach junior high. This is a fantastic school for kids to start with! And the community around it is the best!

'The principal and the teachers are nice, friendly, dynamic, creative, and they love their students. They have a great group of parents who like to volunteer all the time...' This is a wonderful school and i would recommend any parent send there child here instead of another grade school!

The current principal only cares about her and her teachers. The parents are on there own when you need something. If your child has a problem they do not want to deal with it. It depends on who you are and who your child is if you are able to get the support. One child can hit another child and get suspended unless you are certain people then your child will not get suspended. Waverly School has there favorite parents and kids and it shows.
