I am thrilled with the education my kids are receiving at John Weldon Elementary. The teachers, administrators, and support staff work well together to not only ensure kids are pushed to their full potential, but they also stress the importance of kindness and being respectful to one another. They have created a warm and welcoming environment where everyone feels included.
John Weldon Elementary is a great school. I have the honor of working at JWE along with our son attending school there. I've always been impressed with the family like atmosphere in the building and the tremendous support of our community. Our son is thriving and receiving the support he needs to grow in his education. We are so grateful for JWE!
John Weldon is a big school with a small school feel. Once you enter the building, you feel like you are a part of something so very special. The staff at John Weldon pour their hearts into each student and the students are happy to be with their teachers! It is truly a special place!
