  • Waters Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Personally, I think the rating system here is rigged! Waters being a 5 and all. The energy of this school with the parents, teachers and faculty are amazing. As a parent whose child is in the kindergarden class, I was so surprised about how much money the parents have been able to raise year in and out. My child has drama, gym, art, music, and math/computer class. The teachers are great. As a realtor myself, when I list a property and say Waters on it.... it sells. Why have we been stuck at a 5 for 3 years. We are on same path as coonley, bell, blaine etc. Parents, this school is on that track! Highly recommend!!!!!!

    I have a story about Waters. My child needed a doctor s appointment earlier this week and made sure I scheduled it afterschool, not during, because, well, here were the reasons: "Oh I can't miss social studies tomorrow, we're starting our group projects, and in reading we are doing our musical puppet show, and math, no I just don't want to miss math (loves it), and not science because today we are using the microscopes to study the microorganisims." My child has been at Waters for about 10 years and has had at least 16 teachers in this school. They have been engaged, they have challenged, my child is not bored. And the teachers work very well together. The principal meets with the teacher-grade-level teams once a week to address challenges that may need attention, and things that are working. I know no school is perfect, they all have pros, cons, or maybe lack something or maybe not. In my opinion, if the majority of the experience is good, let people know. So I am. I pointed out just a few examples my child loves school. But I could write pages.

    More than a neighborhood fine arts school, it s a village.Teachers are wonderful, the space unique - garden, playground and field. A Tier1 on its way up (few lottery spots left).The Admin/teachers are implementing new ideas like Calm Classroom, CAFE reading,Coffee w/Principal, and Healthy Schools.There is a need for house cleaning (mentioned in past post) Dreary Drama, non music, Special Ed, few k-2 teachers who lack interest/skills,and 2 Math Specialist positions-all of whom are not the right fit for Waters. We need to be honest about is/isn't working. 90% of the teachers are truly exceptional and collaborate on weaving art, ecology, science, literacy, writing, math, etc. into the curriculum. The good news is the principal is responsive,has admitted to making poor hiring decisions, and committed to righting them! It is nearly impossible to rid a school of a lackluster tenured teacher, but she is working to make changes. Take a look inside and see if Waters has what your child needs-smaller class size, literacy program, afterschool prog, sports, art, ecology, kind teachers, beautiful environment, possible friendships for life.

    I'm proud to be a Waters Elementary parent! I live in the neighborhood, and I feel lucky to be part of this school community. The teachers and parents work together to maintain all that is amazing at Waters -- and to improve when needed. I continue to be impressed with the involved, intelligent, welcoming, kind, and very active Waters teachers and parents. Happy children abound, and the programs offered continue to inspire me daily: Mr. Leki's Garden and the fabulous ecology program, Mrs. Vecchioni's stellar art program, excellent reading and Math opportunities, Calm Classroom, Chinese New Year celebrations (and many other opportunities to celebrate and learn about various cultures/holidays/etc.), Field Day in the Spring, field trips, the Variety Show, the Spring Big Night fundraiser, Spirit Week, just to name a few. Fabulous families, amazing kids, and a spirit of teamwork among the teachers, administration, and students create a cooperative educational environment!

    Waters is a great neighborhood school. Though like many neighborhood schools there is a small faction of parents who seem to run everything - they do an absolutely fantastic job but it can be a little hard to really get involved. Additionally, I feel that the principal is a good administrator but not great with kids and the same goes for the assistant principal.
