    My very different children are thriving at Wampus Elementary. The teachers are great and when my daughter's teacher left during a pregnancy the substitute was wonderful as well. She loved them both! Teaching today involves more interesting projects than in my day. When I was young I wrote papers on dull topics which I copied from the encyclopedia. My children do projects you can't copy -- they write illustrate collect photos write diary entries in the voice of historical characters they've studied etc. Parents are invited for class presentations choral concerts and instrumental concerts (yes they start instruments of their choice in 4th grade). Just as my childhoodl math curriculum wasn't familiar to my parents the Byram HIlls math homework takes some getting used to. But state tests and 'No Child Left Behind' tests all use this style so there's no avoiding it. Best thing calm supportive teachers.

    The teachers at Wampus are wonderful. They truly care about the students. They are skilled and knowledgeable about the curriculum. They really individualize instruction so that all children learn. I wouldn't send my children to any other district.

    Teachers are a bit young but willing to spend plenty of time with kids and parents. Math program and music are great. Teachers need to be a bit more aware how clique-y the kids are and try to make them more inclusive.

    I agree with the other parent's review. While the school system earns high marks I attribute that to the parents and not the teachers. We supplement with tutors. Teachers have low expectations tend to be on the young side and inexperienced at least at Wampus. Likewise the school has a very modern approach to teaching which I dont share.

    We have been very disappointed in the quality of the teachers at Wampus. We have two children who have progressed from First Grade through the Fifth grade. Neither has had an outstanding teacher both have had several poor teachers three of their teachers left due to pregnancy and were replaced with inadequate teachers and for the most part the teachers have been mediocre.
