Ray And Jamie Wolman Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

January 20, 2018 Submitted by a parent
Both of my children went to this school, one since Kindergarten and one from Second grade until graduating to Middle School. We only had one truly bad teacher the entire time. However, the KISD administration and the Principal are killing this school. The 'we must make the highest STAAR test scores possible', the constant money grab, the ridiculous pressure being put on both students and teachers and the ridiculous number of students zoned to go to this school (last year nearly 1500) no one can keep up. The kids want to learn. Parent involvement is huge. Kids don't want to go because the environment is awful. We loved our teachers. We had an excellent response from the Vice Principal and Counselor. KISD as a district needs a major overhaul and Principal Ricks needs to go with it.

Too much teaching to the test. Administration is cold at best along with the front office staff. Issues brought to their attention are ignored. Teacher turnover is outrageous! Be QUIET, walk in a straight line, don't forget anything in your backpack and need to get it. Lunch is a joke and kids can't even visit with their friends because it's too loud! Kids can't be kids, just little learning to take test robots.

High teacher turnover. Principal who ignores the issues and even when brought to her attention she dismisses them. Kids are a number and lost in this very overcrowded school. I pay a lot in taxes at this fairly new school to have my kids spend 2 years in portable buildings. Too much teaching to the test. Too much homework. If work is not completed they get to set out at recess. Way too many fundraisers!! Marks are for crazy issues like needing to get something from your backpack, talking during lunch, talking outside the portables. Lunch is conducted some days in complete silence. They use a bull horn and yell for quiet and warning system which is crazy! Angela Kovar from the admin staff is about the only one who listens and then her hands are tied and the principal won't let things get fixed. We pulled our child and she's thriving at her new school!

The school is only a few years old, the building is nice, and they have many of the modern technology options. The school is also overcrowded. While the building was designed for 1,050 students, at the end of last year, it closed with over 1,500. There are so many students, in fact, that "electives" (art, music, PE, library, digital art) are spaced so far apart that the kids never really get the benefit of any of these options. Except PE. PE is every other day. Art is twice in a 15 day period. Music is twice in a 15 day period. That's not enough. In the meanwhile, the principal, Kelly Ricks, is so focused on getting the highest STARR test numbers, that teachers are no longer allowed to truly teach the kids or pay attention to their individual needs. Their employment depends on their student's achievements on these tests. Wolman also has one of the highest teacher transfer requests in the entire district. A typical school has 4-5 requests during any one calendar year while Wolman has into the double digits. Forget trying to get an honest answer out of the administrators. They will tell you the party line just to end the conversation. The principal will pass your message on to one of her employees to return. Getting any sort of implementation of a change is completely out of the question unless it is first conceived by the principal. The PTA has a highly involved volunteer base. Almost to the point of absurdity. It becomes a competition for who can rack up the most volunteer hours in a single month. Visitor parking spots are auctioned off for thousands of dollars to the extent that there are 10 or less spots in front of the entrance for actual school visitors. There is so much money flowing through the PTA that they spend it on catered luncheons and end of year gifts for themselves rather than buying another smartboard or sharing with another less fortunate school or even buying supplemental art supplies. Other than that, the school is pretty. Most of the teachers care about their kids. Some are very good at communicating. The only way I'd recommend this school is if the parents were able to stay actively involved in what was going on.

We've been at this school for two years. My kids love it! The teachers are very supportive
