    Teachers are great at Watson school. Principal leadership need a little bit more focus. It is a safe and good environment.

    Two of my children have been attending Watson El.for two years now and their experience overall has been a good one. The teachers we've had at Watson genuinely care about the students. Also I've been very pleased with the professionalism and dedication of my children's teachers. I think my childen have learned while at Watson. They've not really been pushed but they've stayed busy learning new material. There is one area I'd like to see improved upon and that's the fun stuff the stuff that makes going to school exciting. I'd like more school wide units of study school wide assemblies more school wide student recognition... But that comes from the principal and ours isn't real enthusiatic! Overall it's a good school.
