    Since recieving a new principal there has been positive changes within the school. I feel the school is leading to great things. I still feel though that there should be some security in the back of the school to protect those students that walk through the field.

    This school is wonderful! I drive my child from Milwaukee to attend this great school. Keep up the good work - Wadewitz Adminstration Teachers and staff. I'm proud to say you are helping mold my children. - Jen Zimmerman

    This school does not let the parent feel they have a control over thier children's education. For example this school does offer Title 1 which is a reading tutoring program but they will pull your child out of social studies or science for remedial reading. The principal does not take action and does not value the parents decision over what is best for thier child.
