    The Wetherbee School is a great school. My son has been there since kindergaten and the staff has been exeptional. They have helped my child go from a difiant aggressive kid to one of the most helpful kids in school. My son was diagnose with ADHD a couple of years ago the Wetherbee teachers took extra time to come up with a special plan to fit my sons needs. I thaked each and everyone of them for their help and support.

    The Wetherbee school has been an excellent school over all. Both of my oldest boys went there and I felt that the teachers there do care for their students education. Now I have my youngest one and the help he get there with his education plan is beyond excellent.

    I think the Wetherbee school is a great school The teachers administrators paras and everyone else.They work very hard with all the students. I have 3 children that attend the wetherbee first second and third and I must tell you I am very impressed with the quality of work they home with and what they have have learned.When they first started attending I thought the academics might be to much but they've done great.The academic program is very strong. As a parent you really need to stay on top of thing so you can help out when needed. They do have a band which is very nice. it would be nice to get some other music programs started. As far as parent involvement I am on the PTO and we are lucky if 5pp show up. We do this for all our kids we need to work together!
