15 Parent Reviews for Wells Branch Elementary School

The principal is cold, rude, and treats parents as a necessary annoyance that must be kept at arms-length. Information from her and the administrators is not at all forthcoming, and when more information is sought, there is a definite "stay-away" message that parents receive from her and her staff. As ...  Read more

I have 3 kids at this elementary school, 5th, 3rd, and 1st. Their teachers are all exceptional, and they take the time to talk to me, about my kids and how they are doing. It really feels like a collabrative effort for their education. As a parent, I believe parent involvment makes or breaks a school. ...  Read more

The school is overcrowded. The teachers are stressed and are not getting enough support. My daughter is bored, and I have asked to have her moved into the gifted classes, but that is not how RRISD works. Being a single parent on a major budget I can ill afford to send her to private school, or pay for ...  Read more

Great staff and super teachers.The one time we had an issue with bullying it was diffused swiftly in a professional manner. The teachers are committed emotionally as well as professionally and really care about the kids. We will miss the WBE family.

My sone attended K and 1st here under previous principal. We were impressed by the teachers and admin staff. They all gave 110%. His 1st grade teacher was by far the best we've seen. If you look at the cultural and societal make-up of WBE, you'll see children of all backgrounds and, in my opinion, ...  Read more

From what I have heard around the neighborhood, multiple teachers are leaving WBE due to things going on on the campus. As a parent I am only privy to so much information, but I do know several are leaving. It makes sense that lack of support would cause good teachers to go elsewhere. I guess maybe ...  Read more

They do whatever it takes for your children, inspire of the lack of support from the principal. She is basically non-existent from what I can tell, working ...  Read more

My oldest daughter attended WBE from K-5. Under the previous principal, Ms. Taylor, (whom the children absolutely adored) the children were taught self control, pride, respect and good behavior. She led the children with a calm gentle voice and without fear. Under the new principal, Ms. Cini, I see ...  Read more

First let me start by saying the WBE has some of the best trained and most competent teachers I have ever seen. They work hard to promote the learning of all students. I disagree that they do not challenge higher students. The fact that the commended and passing rates on TAKS are rising is proof these ...  Read more
