Wellington Elementary School10

Flower Mound, TX | Denton County

I have 3 children attending Wellington and so I am up there quite a bit. The front office staff are absolutely the worst people to deal with. They are very rude, aggressive, and just plain mean. I now walk into the school immediately feeling guarded and waiting for some sort of snide remark and bad attitude from them. I cannot believe a school as well rated as Wellington would allow such mean spirited people to work around small children. Had I known a year ago when we moved here that this is what I'd be dealing with, I would have put my children in another school.

We are new to the school and are so disappointed! The school administrator seems so friendly at first, yet we quickly realized the children are nothing but a number. My child has regressed in learning, and everyone blames everyone else. It is not a school I would ever choose for my child- or location in Flower Mound to move. Read the reviews of so any parents... This school is not good!

Our child just transferred to this school and we are very disappointed. There is so much hype about this place but it is the most impersonal, unfriendly school we have ever seen. They run this place like all kids are robots and if your kid does not act like all the other kids...they are a "bad seed" and targeted by teachers and administrators alike. Due to the size of the school and extremely disinterested administration kids are just statistics here. While discipline and organization are a much needed part of education - so is caring, compassion, creativity... Not available at this school. Teachers have so many students that if a child has any issues or difficulty they are very quick to send them the assistant principals office to get them out of their hair. The administration runs discipline with a zero tolerance attitude. These are kids not criminals.

I have 3 students at this school and feel it is very average. I'm actually surprised by the previous review saying the carpool line is organized it must have been written by a staff member. The carpool line is an absolute disaster w/much confusion by staff as well as parents. The ladies in the front off are miserable and snippy which is disappointing since they give the first impression of the school. The lower level teachers K-2 are pretty good and attentive to the students as well as the parents but the teachers in 3rd & 4th are VERY average. I have questioned whether or not my 4th grader learned anything all year. The school is overcrowded and the staff as well as the principal do not personally know your children due to the size. I feel like my kids are all just numbers. I'm sad to say my kids have had a very average experience at this school and am not impressed at all by the administration. We have had a handful of great teachers but the rest have been unmemorable. The best thing about the school is the parental involvement and kids.

My three kids have all attended or are attending this school. We have had very positive experiences all around. We have had children in the gifted program which is wonderful, as well as a child with ADD. The teachers have been responsive and helpful in every circumstance. Many opportunities for parental involvement. Strong PTA. Organized car pool line. Shaded playground (very important in Texas).

My daughter is almost finished with 2nd grade. This was her first year at Wellington. I LOVE her teacher but I hate the school. They are very unorganized, lack in communication with the parents, and the carpool lane is a joke. At the end of each school day it looks like ants crawling out of a building and none of the teachers seem to be paying attention. Overall, I am very unhappy with the school.

We like Wellington Elementary and appreciate the principal and teachers. I agree with some of the previous messages, the 5 or 6 ladies in the front office are extremely unfriendly and have disgruntled looks on their face every day. If they hate their jobs, why not leave and make Wellington a fantastic environment for visitors and parents coming in. Unfortunately, these 5-6 ladies are the first impression for all entering the school and no one likes their attitudes.

My kids have been attending this school since August & I agree with the previous posts. The guarddogs at the front office act like they are doing you a favor by even acknowledging you walked in. Communication is mostly email which would be great except when you would like to see the teacher in person for a conference. It lack any school spirit, it's very militant. I'm afraid my kids are starting to dislike school now due to the atmosphere here.

Wellington is a wonderful school! I am beyond thrilled with the education that my son is receiving here. The teachers are wonderful, the academic standards are high and there are so many ways to volunteer and be involved with your child's class and with the school in general. I personally like that the school has security precautions and that a stranger off the street cannot gain access to our children.

Wellington is an amazing elementary school. The level of education my son received was amazing. In general, students from Wellington did far better at middle school compared to students from other local elementary schools. I can say enough about how amazing the teachers are at Wellington. There are also quite a few extra curricular activities after school. This is by far the best elementary around!

We have been at Wellington for 5 years and Love it. I am really shocked at the previous submission. A school as large as Wellington(1000 students) has to maintain strucuture. If you have too much of an open door policy...who knows who you would find walking in the doors(hence the security doors). You must not have been in the disitrcit long enough to know that a few years ago(maybe 2) , a man people knew and trusted at another district elementary school(although not a parent), waltzed in and kidnapped a young girl for several hours. This is school is full of volunteer opportunities besides the usual Pta stuff. They are open to you having lunch with your child, coming in for the parties, volunteering to read in the classroom, etc... I don't know how much more you can come to the school without interefering with the learning process!! Love this school!!

If you look at most of the reviews the older ones are 5 stars across. Most parents aren't as happy now. I am in full agreement that parents are shut out of their children's lives at this school. It's really sad. It's not caring environment outside of the classroom. It's run more like a prison than an elem. school. The teachers are great, but they're stuck in the middle and have no say. Parent involvement is so limited due to the rigid structure and is generally only related to PTA meetings or funding. I've talked with other people in other districts and they can not believe the issues we have at our school. Several times I have very seriously considered transferring my children.

Wellington is an amazing elementary school. Frankly, I am rather shocked at the previous two comments! I believe that the teachers are the heart of the school, and my children have been so fortunate to have such wonderful educators. In fact, 3rd grade happened to be their very favorite years! I think that one must be proactive in the education of your children - if you feel like there isn't enough parental involvement and communication, then get on out there and be involved! We have an excellent PTA! Also, I believe it was mentioned that teachers communicate only through emails. Did you not attend any conferences? Do you expect teachers to send emails back to you during their non-working hours? I believe they deserve a little more credit than that!

I have a child currently in 3rd grade in this school & he has been there since 1st grade. While I think the standards are ok, parental involvement and communication is very poor. Teachers don't communicate about your child to you unless you ask (& even that is very textbook-like. It's like they cut & paste all comments to all children commonly!) & the only communication is about school activities, fund raising, money, etc. If the admin would take more action on parental communication, I would feel better about this school.

We really did not like this school. They have way too many rules, way too many people acting like monkeys in front of and indide the school yelling at the kids and even at the parents. Parents do not have any chance to know what is happening inside the school. You can not walk your child to his classroom. Parents feel totally outside the school, most of the time lost and not knowing what is going on. Teachers communicate only sending emails (during school time, aren't they busy with the kids??) or even thru the kids- a lot of the information is lost. They have too many students. No parental involvement.
