    "My daughter has been at Wesley Lakes for 3 years now and My husband and I are very pleased with her progress, and the staff. Mrs. T. Harris, Mrs. Paris, and Mrs Hertwig are 3 of the B E S T teachers that Henry County has to offer. They keep/ kept the lines of communication open between parents and they keep/ kept me up to date on my daughter's progress. My daughter is typically shy and mild mannered. However, since being at WLE she is building her confidence and breaking through her shell and I am very proud of her! The ladies in the office (Mrs. Montague and Mrs. Britt) are very professional and such pleasures to encounter each visit. My husband and I are considering a move/ home purchase, and one of our primary goals in to find what we want in THIS school's district. Thank you Wesley Lakes for caring for my little love bug!"

    "This is an okay school if you're looking for an average school. This is not a school for you if you're looking for opportunities for your children to advance in higher learning. It may be helpful to enroll your child in learning programs as far as after school goes. The parents aren't too involved either so that could be part of the issue."

    "My son attended Wesley Lakes for Kindergarten and first grade '10-'13. Our experience with Wesley Lakes was good. I especially appreciated how his kindergarten teachers recognized his capabilities and kept him challenged. Mrs. Cortez, his assistant teacher in kindergarten was the best. There are a lot of good teachers there and I never had a problem with staff. They had the drama club after school free of charge and did their best to accommodate the many children who signed up. They always encouraged parent involvement with I mom & All Pro Dads. Someone mentioned that the school is not diverse, it is primarily African American because that is the race that lives in the area but he had a sprinkle of other races in his classroom. All the kids in his classroom were very sweet on the occasions that I would have contact with them. A lot of them would remember me when I came to the school and come and give me a hug. This was my experience. I think if you have good communication with the teacher and try to be involved, you would have a good experience."

    "Wesley Lakes Elementary cares about their students. The teachers here would love to see more parent involvement! We have seen an increase in our parent involvement and it has made all the difference in the world. I strive daily to provide quality instruction and invite you to see the changes in our school. So often a few negative opinions can unjustly give our school a bad reputation. Come and experience the changes here at WLE. We are changing for the better. Come and see the new WLE!!!!!!!"

    "At first after reading all the reviews on WLE I wasnt happy at all that my child was going here. However, with the new teaching methods, smaller classrooms and communication I have received, I see that this school cares to turn things around for the best. My child just started to go here this past year but from what I have seen these parents care, the school faculty cares and this school seems to be trying to improve and really change things around for the best. With all of the different support groups for moms, dads and SEIP programs. Good for you WLE, Keep up the good work!"
