Joseph Welsh Elementary SchoolEdit
It is a school in a lower socio-economic area. There are a lot of low-income families there which leads to large class sizes with children with unique difficulties being put into the large classes without the right amount of assistance. There is no lunch time supervision in the classrooms. Grade 4 and 5's run the office over the lunch hour, which is great until an emergency and they have no idea what to do. There is 0 parking. No microwaves either.
I absolutely LOVE this school!! We live out of bounds, but I had heard such good things about it, I wanted to try and get my son registered to attend. Mr. Kwasny (principal), is so amazing with the kids!! He really helped my son get over his anxiety and learn to love school. Ms. Pugh is also awesome, and helped my 6 year old son go from a boy who was so nervous to go to school he literally got sick every morning, to a boy who runs into school because he is so excited to go. Best school ever!!
