I am a parent of a third grader at Weigelstown. Everyone works hard to make learning good for all of the students. My child's teacher (mrs. Shetter) has helped him a lot this year. I think Mrs. Kanigsberg is very nice. She gave us a tour when we moved to the school.

All of my children have attended Weigelstown. The staff are always willing to go the extra mile. The principal Mrs. K. knows every student by name! She greets the children each morning and always has a smile on her face. I love this school.

This is a good school for the most part. The principal however does not express much of a concern for the children although she puts on a great front.
