10 Parent Reviews for Wedgwood Elementary School

Although my kids no longer attend wedgwood I am going to write this post. I am very surprised that there isn't any posts mentioning the way some parents and students have been treated either by the PTA or the office staff. My children transferred to this school 5 years ago from another district in the ...  Read more

Our child just completed Kindergarten (with Mrs. Hoisington) and we couldn't be happier with how much she has grown in the past year. She has excelled at reading and I really love that the children are "pushed" to learn. It is true what they say how children's minds are like sponges and the more you ...  Read more

We have two children at Wedgwood. The academics are great, the parent-teacher community is warm and welcoming. We are new to WA state and prior to our move both our children attended private schools and I can say hands down the education experience at Wedgwood is as good or even better than the private ...  Read more

Wedgwood does not feel like a safe loving place to send your kindergartener. The focus is all about test scores and over achieving. There is little supervision on the playground (three recesses a day!) and no one-on-one time. The teachers do try, but they are stuck teaching overcrowded classes (24/26, ...  Read more

The teaching and parent community at Wedgwood is outstanding. The principal accessible and approachable and knows each child by name. Money raised by PTSA and through other events is put to very good use and the children are not short-changed in any area of their education.

My child was in private school - but I could no longer justify the expense, especially when I realized how substandard the mathematics education was in the private school. I am very impressed with the high standard of teaching in this school. The teachers we have had so far are truly amazing and inspiring. ...  Read more

This was our first year at Wedgwood and we are very happy with our experience. The Principal is very accessible, he offers coffee chats with parents, is very visible in the school to both the kids and parents, and I am almost certain (in his first year) he has memorized all of the students names! Both ...  Read more

Wedgwood is an amazing school in a dumpy building. Although we live in the Bryant reference area, we sent our kindergartener to Wedgwood. We were extremely impressed by the principal, Veronica Gallardo. For instance, she had worked out in advance a plan for whatever math program SDS decided to adopt. ...  Read more

There is a lot of support at this school for art, music & P.E. (every other day). Parents are very involved in fundraising, after school activities and volunteering in the classroom. The school has 3 Spectrum (gifted) classrooms. There are a lot of high achieving students, so the staff is able to ...  Read more
