8 Parent Reviews for Welby School

If this school allows the enrollment of one more student, it will surely burst at the seams! At the time of this writing, there are 1,018 student in grades K-6. That is the size of a normal junior high school. Because of this, they run a 4 track system to pack the kids in like sardines. Due to the ...  Read more

I have been impressed with Welby and how they handle the large number of children enrolled here. It is a track school which helps keep each class size lower than a lot of other schools that cram it all into one traditional school. My two children have both had great teachers that are always challenging ...  Read more

As long as your child is in the 'norm' Welby is okay. I have two that are in the 'norm' somewhat and with my help they are honor roll. I also have two that are learning disabled and if it wasn't for me they wouldn't even be reading. Welby needs to grow more in understanding how to work with the learning ...  Read more

We have two children currently enrolled in this elementary school. We have become aware that many of the teachers cannot cope with children who need extra attention, many 'slip through the cracks', and guidance and counselors are inadequate. You only receive the necessary attention after making your ...  Read more
