My son is in Kindergarten at Arboretum Elementary and having a wonderful experience. My son has flourished not just academically but socially. The staff at Arboretum is dedicated to helping students grow and learn at whatever academic level they are at. Parents are very involved in the school and the staff is nurturing and supportive. I love that my son is learning Spanish at such a young age as well as focusing on all of the other important academic areas. We chose to move to Waunakee for the schools and I'm so glad we did as we love Arboretum.

Arboretum Elementary School is very organized and careful about making sure students are accounted for. The students feel safe to concentrate on the lessons in the classroom, given by their excellent teachers. If parents are delayed in picking up students, the children will be happily sitting in the school office. Parents are invited often to the school to see what the students have been learning and creating. The support system is fantastic, from having packets of school supplies available to purchase to having fundraisers to provide extras for the school.

I am floored by the one star review submitted earlier...so much so that I am not convinced it is even valid. We feel so incredibly blessed to have our kids at Arboretum. The teachers and school as a whole are amazing. My kids absolutely LOVE going to school and they do an incredible job at Arboretum fostering a love of learning and providing a supportive environment for doing so. Honestly, I couldn't imagine a better school...it's perfect!!

We are one of many family's who have been forced to remove their children from this school due to a lack of education. The school depends on wealthy family's who teach their children outside school. Worksheets were sent home with concepts not covered in class. Some teachers are great, but if you have one that is not the principal will do nothing. Our daughter went from loving school to hating school. Avoid Arboretum at all costs!

At Arboretum, Ms. Weihert, the principal and her staff have created a nurturing and a positive learning environment where all students can succeed. My son is enjoying his learning experience at Arboretum. He loves math, Spanish and reading just as much as he loves his art, phy. ed. and music classes. Along with learning content, he is learning to be a good leader and appreciative of various traditions and beliefs. I am impressed with the instructional strategies that are being used at Arboretum.

Being that it is a new school and this is the first year in operation, I was somewhat leery of sending my daughter in the developmental stages. Once I found out that Sheila Weihert (the principal) was transferring with it, my worries were gone. I am impressed every day with the progress my daughter is making, and I can't say enough how happy I am that she is a part of this unique opportunity to say 'I was there the first year it opened' I hope that every other parent is as happy as I am with the school and all of it's staff.
