    My school is so involved in the futures of all of its students. The care dedication the many things all the staff do to make sure the kids learn to love to read and learn and to be excited about their education is unsurpassed. One of the great things that I love so much is that they teachers let the kids know they are needed and special in every way no matter of who they are or where they come from. It is the best elementary school in Bay County Fl.

    Waller is a exceptional school when it comes to teaching our children what they need to succeed. Very impressed with the teachers approach when dealing with children. The only issue I have had with them is the headlice outbreak. It has been a constant problem since my oldest daughter has started there in kindergarden. I have met with the principal personally and requested weekly head checks but this has not been followed thru. I feel slightly better knowing my prek daughter does have the benefit of her teacher doing weekly head checks! Go Mrs. Odom!

    This school is fantastic with it's curriculum developement! They have maintained above and beyond standards when implementing the Reading Frameworks as appointed by Bay District Schools. All of the staff is well educated and if they are not in the process of continuing their education they have just completed a degree above a Bachelors.

    This school has a very wholistic view on teaching. Children are set in groups for the lower grades. As for the teachers just like other schools Waller has some really good teachers and some not so good teachers. It all depends on your child's learning style as to if this school is going to be a good placement for your child.

    Waller seems about average on most counts. It would appear that most of the kids enjoy this school. The teachers seem to do a good job for the most part. They really push the kids for the FCAT assessment tests; maybe a little too much trying to get a good rating for their school. I think alot of schools are doing that now. The principal seems fair. The guidance counselor is exceptional. Overall I think this school is probably better than average.

    Waller is a great school! My children have been attending Waller for five years now. I think every teacher and administrator become part of your family. They all want what is best for the children.
