This school for all its PTO events and being in the affluent side of town is only a weak 6. Maybe once the district/school board gets rid of the “Good Ol’ Boys Club” and gets fresh blood and administrators who actually have education and training in the field this school will be restored to the 10 of its glory years (circa 2003).

This is a great school. Very involved in the students learning and development. Plenty of events to keep the kids involved and interactive.

I think TL Waggoner is a fantastic school. My daughter just finished Kindergarten and learned so much! Her teacher was tough but we liked that about her. We want our daughter to be smart and work hard. Teachers can only do so much. As parents we need to take responsibility and work with the teachers to make sure OUR children grow to be strong independent hard working adults. I agree with the previous poster. Your attitude and approach make a big difference.

Both of my children have attended TL Waggoner. Their teahers have been very caring and informative. We have had no issues getting our youngest the extra help he's needed. For thos who've had issues maybe it's your attitude and the way you approach things. My oldest was being bullied and when brought up to her teacher it was dealt with the same day and now my daughter and the "bully" are friends. All of the teachers that my children have had have been wonderful and caring. Maybe to the previous poster you need to teach your kids how things arent handed to them and that they actually have to work for their grades and rewards. TL Waggoner staff does expect a lot out of their students and grades are not just handed out and students are not just passed onto the next grade because of social issues. If you want a school where the staff is caring, wants to be there, and your children are actually expected to work for their grades and rewards TL Waggoner is a great choice.

I have 3 of my kids in this school, and think that I made a big mistake transferring them here. My kids are in Kindergarten, 1st and the last one is in 4th grade. Two of my kids have horrible teachers while one of them has the best teacher ever. My kindergardeners teacher has the most horrible attitude, she has no patience whatsoever, to the point of these kids being scared to attend her class. A few of us parents have complained to the principle multiple times because of certain incidents that occurred. The principles response is always the same, why didn't you tell her something when we saw it. We personally think that its his job to handle these type of issues. Then he starts to blame the parents, kids, etc. Hes always making excuses for them and does nothing about it. He defends his teachers no matter what. Like every other school, there are very sweet teachers and horrible teachers. This school really needs a principle who will stand up for these kids and not allow these horrible teachers to get away with everything.
