    "I love all of the extracurricular opportunities this school offers to my Kindergartener and 5th Grader. My Kindergartener is involved in the Spanish club. My 5th Grader is a part of the BBN (in school announcement news cast), Reach, Track, and Storm Team. He has attended the school since he was in Kindergarten and LOVES the teachers he's had and friends he's made. I love the diversity and acceptance at this school!"

    "Barely any security. Tardy is their motto. Academics is below average. Idea of a field trip is going to the auditorium and charging 6 for it."

    "Welch has great teachers and staff, they are well educated and very helpful. This year (2013) class sizes have gone up considerably and that has affected greatly on the level of education, teachers are overwhelmed and students are not getting the attention they need to succeed. Budget cuts from the state and county are the main reasons for the class increase. As parents, we are very disappointed that Coweta school district has not taken steps to reduce other expenses instead of increasing class sizes. Some of the things they can do would be hire support staff that is able to teach part-time as well as do their support functions In some cases, they can reduce support staff completely and use that money to hire more teachers. Typical government bureaucracy is affecting education and kids are paying the price, shame on Coweta county school district for not taking care of the kids. If you are thinking about buying a house in an area so your child can go to school here look at other alternatives. We are going to be moving soon so our child can attend a school that has a better student to teacher ratio."

    "I truly believe that MANY parents will post PERSONAL opinions to rate a school based on their own EXPERIENCE. Over a period of 6 yrs, since the doors opened, I have personally witnessed a variety of parents, (who seemed to always have difficulties with their children), express negative feedback. I believe that they are quick to have a strong opinion leaving the responsibility of their child's complete academic, social & behavioral life up to the teachers and the school they attend. I feel that those parents will truly never be "happy" anywhere they go. After having two children go through this school, and having experienced public school system in some other state w/my other children, Welch is by far a good school. The teachers give 100%. If you are a parent who likes to have your child "pacified" when they need to be reprimanded, then you are probably better off teaching them at home. The teachers here discipline. It would be helpful to those teachers if parents of the disciplinary children would actually help their child & then the teachers could give far more outstanding instruction & attention. It's a great school people. Don't leave the responsibility of your child to others"
