    "This is my child's first year attending Wade. My first encounter with anyone at this school was rude condescending office staff. As a new family transferring, this school has been uncaring and uninterested in assisting with a smooth transition. Perhaps a New Student packet with useful information would be beneficial, since there are several unwritten policies that seem to make up the culture of the school. I've asked for specific information and have been given the run around on several occasions. Most recently, I asked for a list of before and after care providers servicing the school. I was told to ride around Waldorf and look for signs at businesses because that information cannot be given out. If the school allows these businesses to pick up students from school property on a daily basis, surely they can provide that information when asked by a parent. I've asked for the dates of upcoming events such as PTA and open house and was told to watch the marquee outside the school. The main reason I moved to Charles County was due to the reputation of the school system. However, this experience has been extremely disappointing to say the least."

    "As a military family it is not uncommon to end up moving mid-school year as with the case this year we moved here mid year. We were not given any guidance as to school policy, protocol, and were not shown around the school. Our sons teacher has been a horrible experience for my family. No communication at all, takes weeks to hear back from anyone except the schools counselor who was wonderful and tried to help us as best he could. My child was kicked in the face and I was not notified by the school until 9 days later! This is unacceptable, the staff is not trained on how to deal with the needs of military children. Along with behavior expectation that far surpass normal or even advanced standards, my son was constantly in trouble for doing things kids do. We will be transferring him out of this school."

    "We are a miltary family and transisiton end mid year. Both is and my in laws find the office staff were rude and distant and uncaring. She had to learn a new style of schooling as it was so different from old school. They are caught up on age though she is meeting standards for her grade. They have no real issues. My child has been bullied and hit, with no real care from the school. I regret buying here as the school is not to par with what you would expect by these reviews on here. This school and even school district discourages parent involvement."

    "This school is great! My son has attended Wade since pre-k, he is now in 2nd grade and is reading at a 3rd grade level! Wade teaches the children much differently than any other school in the county which promotes kids to excell in academics in the long run, which is why some parents that transfer their kids find it difficult for their kids to transittion. It is a much different teaching/learing method. I run a daycare and every child that has attended Wade is above grade level reading and math."
