Wesmere Elementary School Reviews
If you're moving to this school or even District 202 - Run away!!! Don't do it!
When I see folks moving into the neighborhood, with kids, I just want to tell them RUN!! This school is a joke. The principal has no business dealing with children...she is rude and generally an unhappy person. If you have a child with special needs, this school is NOT for you. This school does NOT go 'above and beyond' for your child. I had to fight for about 6 months to have my daughter tested. They refused, saying she was "doing just fine." Well, as a mother, I know she was not 'just fine.' I had to spend $1000's to have her privately evaluated - and what do you know - she's got ADHD and learning disabilities!! I took that back to the school and THEN they said they could get her extra help. What a joke...thanks for your help. My daughter will be (finally) leaving here this year and moving onto 6th grade. I cannot wait to leave this school.
The special ed teachers here have really made a difference in my son's education. He really likes them (a hard feat to accomplish) and he's doing well. The teachers have been in constant contact with me with their concerns - I really like that!
Wesmere is a great school. The principal of the last 10 years, who retired and the new principal this year are very genuine people who take the needs of the children very seriously. I have a child who requires extra support and they have been there to make sure it happens each year.
I am especially pleased with the resource staff who assists my child in several academic areas; staying on task with classwork, assist when taking tests, navigating the lunchroom, playground issues and more!
Parents are welcomed to volunteer and my child enjoys going to school every day!
