10/28/2012parentWonderful school, great staff including a competent principal. All the staff seem to be well qualified and caring. The school as a good academic program, music and arts also. Good structure and discipline for the students and most importantly my child loves it there!
4/8/2010parentGreat school I wish every child could go to a school like Wells.
11/11/2007parentI am teacher at Wells. I also have two children who attend Wells. I have never woke up and felt like I did not want to go to work. It is an honor to work there and have my children attend. Our students receive the best education from all of the 'highly qualified' staff members in our building. Our Fine Arts program can't be beat! You can feel the happiness from students and staff the minute you walk in the door. Our principal truly cares about the students and does whatever she can to get us what we need to create the most positive learning environment for our students. I would not have my children there if I didn't think it was the best place to be!
5/15/2007parentIm shocked to see the negative reviews posted here about Steubenville City Schools and Wells Elem. specifically. Wells was awarded the Blue Ribbon of Excellence , two years in a row, from the Federal Dept. of Education. They were one of a few in the Nation to be given this distinction. The academic quality is outstanding. All of the teachers in this building hold a Master's Degree in Education. Providing a quality education is their first priority. The fine arts department is the best in the city and I would say in the area! All students learn to read music and play a recorder. Band begins in 4th grade here, one year earlier then anywhere in the city. The winter and spring theatrical performance that the children take part in is sensational! My son went to Wells and because of the rigorous curriculum at Wells was more than prepared for Jr.High
5/15/2007parentThe fine arts at Wells is phenomonal! My child is in 3rd grade and knows how to play a recorder by reading music! These kids perform on stage in front of hundreds as early as preschool! The school report card shows that students do really great on the state test as well. I highly recommend Wells School.

5/15/2007parentWells School was awarded the Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the Federal Department of Education two years in a row. This is a distinction that only a few schools in the nation received. The academics, fine arts, and extra curricular activities are the best in the city and in the area. Im shocked at the negative reviews. You are certainly in the minority.
5/11/2007teacherI am a teacher at Wells Elementary School. It is such a pleasure to go to work everyday and to be part of such a fine school. Every staff member is highly qualified and every one of them goes above and beyond their duties to make sure the students are successful.Standards are set high for every student and the teachers have high expectations for all of their students. The principal is the rock of the school.She is very encouraging and extremely supportive. The school offers a Fine Arts program that the students all enjoy. It is the best elementary school in this area. I grew up in Steubenville, but I did not attend Steubenville Schools.You can bet that my children will be attending Wells Elementary! It's the best school around!
2/10/2007parentWells is a great school. The staff is highly qualified and caring. They strive to bring out the very best in each student. Both of my children attend Wells School and love it. I wish every child could go to a school like Wells.
2/10/2007former studentI attended Steubenville City Schools for all 13 years of my education childhood education. I went to BV and Wells. Both schools were excellent. The teachers cared about every student and encouraged all of us. Steubenville City Schools has an excellent education program. Steubenville did nothing but help be become a better person. Because of Steubenville, I am going to college to become a teacher and hope to be hired in the local area.
10/30/2006parentSteubenville City schools as a whole does not focus on education. They do have extra music programs at this school that they don't have at other schools. The discipline is very lax, if there is any at all. I personally have heard students cuss at the teachers/coaches and nothing was done but shrug it off and say oh well they are just kids. We are currently looking to move out of the school system as we see this to be the trend throughout all the schools in Steubenville.
3/31/2005parentI think Steubenville in general has a very poor educational system. On the plus side, Wells has a good principal (Mrs. Young), though most of the staff are more concerned with everything & anything but the disipline, encouragement & actual education of our children. Parents are discouraged, unless they are in the clique & lack of respect runs prevalent without proper discipline. (Though this is also a problem brought about with the lack of values many in this area are growing up without.As we all know, Steubenville in general is a depressed & repressed area.) In closing, I would think strongly about attending a private school or hopping across the bridge to WV in search of a more conducive learning environment.
