27 Parent Reviews for Wimbish Elementary School

There are so many caring, hard working teachers at Wimbish Elementary. The principal, Ms. Pride, is so positive and encouraging. I love teaching at Wimbish.

Terrible. Ms. Pride has no "pride" in Wimbish and is going to destroy the one thing that the school has had over the years, great teachers.

This school is awful the fighting the bullying i am just tired of the drama. I believe that the teachers pick on my son to get him fired up then they call me with a different story getting my kids out as soon as possible..

WARNING! This school as of August 8th has been put on an unacceptable level! They should have done this years ago. I received a letter telling me that we were allowed to transfer to another school, that transfers would be accepted to Hill of Swift. Wimbish does have some very good and loving teachers, ...  Read more

Extremely unhappy with this school, we are currently trying to find a charter school for our children to get them out of there. The problems are endless. Let's start with the bullying situation.

I agree with a lot of the reviews listed here. While there are worse schools out there, I was very surprised at how we've been treated by office staff and some of the things I've seen the kids get away with in the cafeteria. It's loud, out of control.. My 1st grade daughter doesn't have enough time to ...  Read more

I Think This Is An Awesome School. Everything Is Great Such As Field Trips But I Think The Kids Should Be Able To Talk More At Lunch. The Moniters Should Give Them A Break!

This is my 2nd year my son has been at Wimbish. The bullying and fighting is out of control and the principle does nothing about it. The teachers have been pretty good but they seem to have their hands tied and worry too much about the taks test. We're moving over Christmas just so he can get a better ...  Read more

My experience with Wimbish has been similar to some of the other reviews. The teachers seem to really care about the students, but the administrative staff is unacceptable. The principal and vice-principal spend all their time sitting in each other's offices and avoid any real work. It has been our ...  Read more
