Winchell Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

August 10, 2018 Submitted by a parent
We are going into our 6th year at Winchell (my oldest started in preschool there), and we are very pleased. Kalamazoo Public Schools doesn’t have the greatest reputation or scores, but Winchell is like a bright light in the district. The teachers and staff are excellent to work with, and genuinely care about each and every student. Even Winchell’s amazing custodian greats my children each morning by name! The principal knows every child and parent personally. No school is perfect, no teacher is perfect, no classroom environment is perfect — because every student is different. We have had numerous concerns over the years, and they have been addressed to our satisfaction. The teachers and principals work hard to find solutions to help my children succeed in every area, not just academics. I believe one of the key factors that makes Winchell great is the high level of parental involvement. It is expected. So if you are a hands-off parent, it might not be the best fit. But we are very involved and on top of things, constantly communicating with teachers and staff. The staff even knows my toddler by name! There is a plethora of opportunities to get involved, everything from helping with special events to being a reading helper in the classroom. We do schools of choice to keep our three children at Winchell. It is well worth the sacrifice!

I am a parent of two academically talented Winchell students, a fourth grader and a second grader. I could not be happier with their educational experiences. Winchell has an amazing faculty, incredible parental involvement, and is wonderfully situated in a peaceful neighborhood. Each year I worry whether or not my children will be placed with a good teacher, and each year they are matched with a teacher that exceeds my expectations. I can only deduce that there are no bad teachers. The principal has always been very responsive to me when I call to speak to him about my concerns. I still marvel at his ability to call every student by name. I am entirely pleased with our choice to move to the Winchell neighborhood for the great elementary school.

I relocated to Kalamazoo for the Promise & after research decided to place my kids in Winchell, because it's the best elementary school. The school does not know how to differentiate instruction. My child set bored in class, because he was ahead of what the class was studying. You have to be a VERY INVOLVED parent and let the teachers know your expectations of your child and them up front. If not, your child will not be challenged and they can slip through the crack. I feel that their Academically Talent program is just a program created to appease parents because of the title. The program is nothing like an advanced placement for elementary kids. As a parent you are better off going to the bookstore and getting workbooks a grade ahead of your child's actual grade and challenging them that way. Additionally, the principal has NO persona! For someone to be in elementary and deal with young kids you would think that he is personable. I feel that if you are a parent and you have issues--especially with how he handles a situation, he will brush your concern off and all together ignore you. Be careful, because everything that's free (Kzoo Promise) is not always good!

We transferred from Parkwood School and we love Winchell due to all the Academic and health cognizant the staff are trying to get all the kids to stay fit. Plus a they have a jump start program that helps my daughter stay focus throughout the day since she has ADD. Her grade went from a "B" to and "A".The only down side is most parents aren't that friendly which I can live with.

Winchell is by far the best elementary in Kalamazoo! My daughter went here from K-4th until we moved out of state. There is a huge parent involvement, the teachers are experienced, fun, and caring. Teachers have high expectations, the AT program is great. The school culture is very inclusive and promotes a love of learning. Mr. Hughes, the principal knows ALL the students by name and holds school assemblies that promote a postive school environment. Teachers of note are Mrs. Ide, Mr. Rochester, and Mrs. Youngs.
