    "My child and family love William B. Wade Elementary. The moment you walk in the door you are greeted by the most caring and attentive office staff. You can tell how much they care for the safety of our children every time you visit. Principal Nye has made some changes that greatly enhance safety at the school. My daughter often states how much she likes Ms. nye and points out how involved she is in the classroom and how she compliments children when they are making good choices. The staff at Wade are top notch!"

    "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 moved to NCR because of a job transfer and picked the community served by William B. Wade because of high marks from many sources. -- The experience has not been the same as expected. - I was disappointed to find that the county strictly limits parents ability to participate or even observe the "goings-on" at the school. -- They require that any observation of the classroom be by appointment only and only twice per quarter. -- The county does not allow parents to be teacher aides. -- The ability to visit the children at lunch is strictly limited to certain days. - Test scores have dropped dramatically over the past year even though they spend a week before each test cramming. - It is very difficult to get specific feedback from the teacher about the progress of my child. Like pulling teeth. - So much empahsis is placed on the children's social development that they are willing to hold a child back that meets standards academically but not willing to put that in writing on a report card and make it part of the feedback system. - The feeling I get is that the new principal is getting the wool pulled over her eyes by the teachers/staff who seem to be pikers."
