In 6th and 7th grade I had pretty good teachers overall but in 8th grade I had new ones that didn't really know what they were doing. The admin tries to make the school feel like a community but it's so cliquey that it doesn't work. Teachers are always willing to help but don't understand the difference between busy work and work that actually make you think. The students are SO cliquey that you can barely concentrate.
Wonderful i get to talk to my teachers and if i am struggling and i have Everything I need for school. I get plenty of 1 on 1 time with teachers when I need it. It's Just a fun friendly learning environment!
Great school. Reading the comments below I couldn't disagree more with the parent about special ed. More money and resources go into that program than anything else in our district. I'm watching the "middle of the bell curve" slowly get ignored because parents of special needs kids keep demanding more and more and constantly suing.
The school has a good academic programs but the students have a lot of boundaries around them a lot of rich snobby people. My child feels uncomfortable learning with the students and if we did anything we had the freedom of speech.
Special needs team tries their hardest but the school does not seem to "get it". This is a school with alot of opportunity for main stream kids only. If your child is not in the dead center of the bell curve look elsewhere.
WOW! My daughter came to Welsh Valley after 8 years at a very prestigious private school and I am so impressed. The acadmic challenge is definately on par with what she is used to and the teachers are well-educated caring and focused. I am so glad we made the switch! This is a great environment for a child!
I have no 1 on 1 time with my teacher so if i need help i never get it because there are always more kids
My teachers are unkind and make learning not fun at all. School seems more like a torture method than an education.
excellent teachers and staffs nice counsellor excellent Jazz Band and Lab Jazz Band.
Mediocre poor administration principle out if touch. Not creative educational tools. Teaching staff good May be it is just the middle school level. From the 2 middle schools in this district I believe this one is lesser. No stars
My daughter has been very happy at this school. Very attentive/responsive faculty. The music program is fabulous Part of the great lower merion school district
