    "I have two daughters that both go to Wauka Mtn. Elementay. I must say it is a great school overall. I'm not particularly thrilled about the impact that charter has had but I think its like any other school. There is always room for improvement. But most of my daughters teachers really care about them and about making mpact on their lives. I do wish though, that the teaching was a little more hands on. The age that these kids are, their minds process information better with doing schoolwork hands on. Kids take info in so fast and so much that they have a hard time remembering. So if I had to say that improvements should be made in that area. Wauka Mtn is one of the best in the cty but is well capable of being thebest."

    "I love this school. I feel honored to send my daughter there. I am 40 yrs. old. 2 of my sibling went to this school. I feel as though they teach my daughter with dignity and pride. Everyday she comes home with something new she has learned. I'm so proud of her. Couldn't be happier."

    "WAUKA MT. ELEMENTARY has been such a disappointment this year it is not even funny. EXTREMELY RUDE teacher, and no where near enough teaching by her or his alternate teacher. It got so bad, that when it came time for them to get on study island to prepare for the 3rd grade CRCT, he didn't know how because he couldn't get the password from his teacher. When he asked her, he told be she would find out, but never did. Even other students were trying to figure out what it might be. In the end I actually had to call the 800 number of that website to get it. UNACCEPTALBE! I have gotten the impression they are simply tired of dealing with him since he is special needs because of speech delay. He is extremely intelligent and can be easily underestimated, which they have done. They seem to concentrate more attention on students they don't have to work as hard with. Doesn't say much for the "I teach because I love it" cry they are always saying. Seriously considering moving him to another charter school where the teachers might actually care whether he gets a good education or not."

    "Such a disappointment. It is not the school it used to be. The charter has negatively impacted the quality of education. The children are no longer routinely exposed to art, music, computers or PE. Only if they take a speciality class that may fall under this category. The standards in these areas are not addressed. Two hours out of their days are into specialties where there are no grades, no accountability. The children are segregated by academic ability as well. They have little to no recess and the admin feels as if the one week they meet with the PE teacher is adequate. What are they missing from their academic day that they are able to put 2 hours into specialties?! My son's grades went down after the charter began including crucial standardized testing scores."

    "Not a great school. The classes are grouped by ability, which I thought was illegal for elementary children. There is literally ZERO diversity at this school, it is 99.9% white children which seems strange. How is that legal?"
