9/18/2012parentAll WB parents are members of the WB PTC. Please get involved and attend the next General Membership meeting on November 13th. If you have a concern regarding the WB PTC, please contact the WB PTC President as I'm absolutely positive she would be happy to meet with you and discuss your concerns. Her contact information is available on the WB PTC Website. Thank you!!
9/17/2012parentI moved here for the music, which was cut, the class size, which is larger than most schools around now, and the small community, which means if you are more affluent, than you have an edge with the Board, Principals and Superintendent. If you are a minority, get ready to be demoralized, excluded and have to tackle every teacher and the elementary principal to get justice and equal treatment for your child. There needs to be an investigation by the St Clair Regional Office of Education as to why there are no minorities in the school as educators and why the kids with disabilities and minorities have to be challenged on every accord for the rightful education they deserve. Top it off with the PTC who are ready to run with your money and fund things the school will not buy and all parents do not have a right to decide how the money is spent. The teachers whose kids went there and they have been there for years have lost the focus of taking care of the kids and have the mindset of "I am entitled".
3/9/2012parentOverall, very happy with this school in terms of educating my child. I am very pleased with the teachers and staff. Unfortunately, the elementary principal leaves a lot to be desired in terms of communication and caring for certain parents and staff.
12/11/2011parentWe have been in the district for years. The other reviews were very accurate in addressing children with special needs or disabilities. Parents really have to "fight" to get their kids what they need. School loves to charge an arm and a leg for everything you can imagine. The elem. principal has no business being there; horrible customer service with parents. Middle school principal - OUTSTANDING!! Loves being there, thus kids love it there. AWESOME with parents. Teachers at both school are TOP-NOTCH. Kids are ahead of the rest in high school.
9/27/2011parentWonderful, dedicated, and caring teachers and staff. Challenging curriculum. Outstanding parental involvement. Overall, a truly terrific school!
2/27/2011parentThree of my children attend Wolf Branch. I would say that the school emphasis on education. They are hardcore. They have no mercy if you are sick. They give you all the class work that your child miss along with all the homework when they were ill. Sometimes you will get 15 pages of Homework if your child was ill for one day. It can be frustrating. I gave this school 5 stars because the teachers are great. The children are competitive. It teaches your children to work hard and stay focus. There is no Private school that will do what this school does for your child. Education is the key to success and in this time in our society we need that push in education.
11/8/2010parentI love this school. Wolf Branch really emphasizes the academics. I feel my daughter is getting the best education possible. She loves going to school everyday. The teachers are great and very caring. I am so glad we chose this district. There is a lot of parent involvement, which also makes this district great.
11/1/2010parentthis school really sucks for children with disabilities!! I totally wished i would of done my research better before moving into this school district!!! I heard this school was so wonderful but its not its the worst!! :(
8/5/2010parentAll I can say is that if you have an above average child, you will love this school. However, if you have a child is avergae or below average and needs help, you will have many problems and a very hard time at this school.
4/15/2010parentGreat Music Program ,Top Math Program, most WB students are very successful in highschool
7/28/2009parentI have two children that attend Wolfbranch, and we've had a good experience with my oldest child who started in Kindergarten. My youngest child attended the pre-k program which I felt was average. For the tuition charged for the pre-k program, I think there are more qualified programs available in the area that offer more academically and socially.
2/19/2009parentI think the teachers are very helpful with the children. This includes children that need to catch up with the class. The office is wonderful to deal with. I am very happy we moved here for this school.
9/15/2008parentWolf Branch is a wonderful school with excellent teachers, staff, administration and parents! There is a focus not only on high academic achievement, which is a strong point for the school, but also on developing the children to become strong, caring and productive citizens. My children have been very fortunate to have had the experience of being part of the 'Wolf Branch Family>'
1/24/2008parentThis school is not for children who need extra help instead of discipline. I asked for after school help but they wanted 15 dollars for every 30 minutes. I regret staying in that school district as long as i did.
1/8/2008parentThis school has exceeded my expectations. I am so happy we chose to send our children to Wolf Branch. What a wonderful community to be a part of. The parents here are so involved. Their investment in their children really shows. The teachers are great and the administration has gone above and beyond to help my family. I can't imagine a better setting for my children.
11/14/2007parentThe school did not make my family feel welcomed when we moved from a different school dist. If I would not have stood up for my oldest child, who has a learning disablity, he would have drowned academically this year. As I progress with this school hopefully my reviews improve.
3/24/2006parentIt is a great school. Both of my kids go there and the teachers are very helpful with all the needs.
7/20/2004parentThe Wolf Branch Community is one that provides a nurturing environment to an already existing exceptional curriculum. A child's needs are met and exceeded, from personal growth to educational challenges.
1/4/2004parentWolf Branch Elementary and Middle School strives to give the students the highest quality education as well as real life lessons. They are not only interested in what is inside a book, but also what is inside the child. What are they thinking? What is important to them? How can I take what is important to them and use that to teach them Engish/ Science...? Both schools believe that parent involvement is important to the students. They believe that close parent involvement makes a school special.
