William V Wright Elementary School Reviews
Exceeded My Expectations
I was very scared about sending my children to a public school. The Clark County School District has one of the worst reputations in the Country. Now, into our 4th year of school there (between two kids), I really am pleased at how our kids are progressing. I have a niece and nephew in school in Michigan and my parents tell me that they believe this school is ahead of the Michigan school. The school has lots of activities (this morning was a Christmas "literacy" program BEFORE school with free donuts, 50 cent hot chocolate and the movie "Polar Express" playing in the multipurpose room. They also have other holiday events. Most importantly, they are very good with the academics. I don't know if my kids would be doing better in a private school, but they are WAY beyond where I was when I was in the same grades 30 years ago! They have art, music, gym and "technology" programs (which is where they learn to use computers, even at the kindergarten level). Overall, I'm extremely happy.
I love this school.Mydaughter a great time there. She began going there in the 4th grade, and she had the nicest teacher. Then in 5th grade she had a mean teacher. However he tought her valuable lessons that she still implieses tohis day. THey have lots of activities and sell snow cones every Friday. Overall it is a great school.
This is our second year at William Wright. My child is in 2nd grade and he has adored his teacher both years. We had a lot of homework in 1st grade, but not so much this year, and he really learned so much in 1st grade, a vast improvement from the school he went to in Utah. Its very safe and bully free, my only complaint is the inefficient pick up area/timing. It takes forever to pick up students and get out of there.
I do agree with the above parents, this school needs to give less homework to the kids. The kids are already working hard during the day, they need some relaxing time once they get home, or they will start resenting school after a while like my son does now.
This is a new school for my child and from what I have seen so far Im not happy. I was told at the unorganinzed orientation that she would have little homework. The first day of school there was a Zero welcoming program from the Principle or any morning pledge or greeting. My child came from a school where there was a morning ritual and program every single day when they lined up outside. The staff was involved. My daughter got a list of homework every Monday and had a project every 3 months to present to the class. Based on what Ive seen and heard so far this school needs serious help!!
I would love for my child to have less homework..just shows the teachers are taking care of business during the day!!
As a concerned parent, I was not happy to hear a teacher telling parents during the orientation day that he will not be giving much homework and if he does it would be only 5 to 7 minutes of work and not more than a page or less. Even that, he would not go over thier homework assignment. It is just merly for the kids to practice. He prefer not to overload the kids and it will be a fun school year. That is totally unacceptable for kids not to be given projects and home work assignments. My kid is happy to hear him say that but I as a parent am upset. I rather see my kid is given homeworks and expected his teacher to go over the assignments. unless the school is a day care center, I think students should be taught right and teachers take the responsibilty of no child is left behind.
