    Basha Elementary is one of the best school. I have moved around quite a bit. My Kid have gone to schools in California mid-west and now in Arizona and I can definately say that Basha is definately one of my best experience. My Kids love it. They work hard to work with your kids and make a positive impact to your child progress.

    Regular and frequent communcation from teacher to parent of special need child is lacking. District is not on top of the needs of the child. If you have a Special Needs child look elsewhere.

    So far we have had a great experience at Waterbury school. My child's teacher has a deep care for the students and concern for their success. She uses parent volunteers on a regular basis in the classroom in order to enrich the children's education by doing more projects and creative curriculum with the help of the parents. My child's reading and math abilities have increased by leaps and bounds in first grade. We feel lucky to have such a fabulous first grade teacher!

    Waterbury elementary school is so much to send your kids for a simple education. They are a group of passionate and caring people who genuinely take each child as an individual and help them in the learning process. In the midst of the states budget cuts the Waterbury family (staff parents kids and community) have banded together in an attempt to figure out how to work out the budgeting challenge. It would be a challenge to find a more committed group of people who are as passionate about the kids as they are about the education.

    Caring and compassion wrapped in an environment that challenges the student to learn is what makes Waterbury a great school. The principal Mrs. Carow has a passion for her staff as well as her students. She communicates well with parents. Our only disappointment with Waterbury is the Math curriculum (Math Trailblazers-UIC Math-Conceptual Math). It is very difficult to understand and inadvertently makes a disconnect from the education process of parent and child.
