    "There are problems with the PTO at this school. Earlier this year we had 2 amazing parents show an interest in running for Pres/VP for next year and they were chased out by the current PTO pres and some committee members when they started asking to see the current financial standing of the PTO. The principal didn't have all the facts and let them try to destroy their reputations. She didn't even support them after the fact. Needless to say they are not running and have pulled out from helping the school altogether. And with them they took many future parents who were interested in helping next year."

    "I think it's short sighted to say that this school is great because your child's grade is not over-crowed but other classes are over-crowed. My child was in the overcrowded class in 2nd grade 2014/2015. The experience was horrible because all the behavioral problems stemmed from over-crowding which stopped all learning from happening. The principal made the decision knowing all the problems we had in 1st grade to cram 29/29 student in 2 sections. A complete disregard for the mental wellbeing of the students. This year 2015/2016 we were given 3 sections and I have seen all the students blossom and learn and grow educationally and as we expected there were no behavioral problems. Unfortunately, our principal plans on doing it again next year 2015/2016 we are back down to 2 sections again. I am disappointed in this decision; we are just a number to her."

    "We have been very happy at Wasco. Both of our children love school and are excelling. We have a couple of elementary school teachers (from outside the area) in our extended family and they are very impressed with what our children are taught and what is expected of them. The office staff is extremely helpful and caring. The school also has incredible parental involvement. The concern about class size is quite valid in some of the grades. Luckily for us, it does not impact our children's class sizes. I am so glad we are here!"

    "I truly feel this year has been a complete academic waste. Probably the only reason we have left our child in this school is for social skill development. From an academic development standpoint we have taken that challenge on ourself and essentially "home schooled" in the evenings. Glad I'm paying all this tax money for nothing! Ever heard the comment about putting lipstick on a pig? Well, it may look cute, but it's still a pig. That's how I would describe Wasco. On the surface it looks like a great school. Apparently the "9" rating is ancient and needs to be revisited because it is no longer accurate. We moved into this school district specifically for the purpose of sending our children to this school. Up until this year we have been happy. But all that changed this year with the implementation of "common core". Standards have fallen and the teachers don't even know what is going on. No spelling tests? Really? I understand the need to spend time with those that are struggling and those with special needs. They deserve adequate attention too. But why does this mean you neglect the middle and top of the class? These kids sit there bored and want to be challenged!"

    "Talk to other Wasco Parents before you enroll your child! Ask any Second Grade parent about their child's experience for the 2013-14 school year. It has been a complete disaster! The classrooms are crowded with 29 kids in one classroom and 30 in the other. The learning that takes place is limited. I am worried my child will not be prepared for the Third Grade. The "9" rating is misleading and I would highly recommend that you take the time to talk with other parents before you enroll your child at Wasco. Many parents are looking to pull their kids out after this year. Papers are not graded, tests are outdated, and the classroom can be described as a zoo! Parents are working hard to get the School Board to authorize a third teacher for next year. Many parents are frustrated that this could happen again in the Third grade! The school does offer a wide selection of Extra Curricular Activities. However, it does not make up for the below average teaching going on in the classroom."
