Capt. Charles Wilkes Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

I am disappointed to see all these negative reviews. I attended this school as a child as did both of my parents and my siblings. I recently moved back to Bainbridge island so that my children can receive the same type of educational experience I had. If there really is this much of a problem with this school then we as parents need to do something. For all of you parents who recently moved here and we're expecting miracles. I transferred to wilkes from a nearby school when I was in fourth grade. The transition was hard because they do require more out of their students. The level of performance expected by the teachers is more than some kids are used to. The bottom line is that you can't move children into a new school and expect things to go smoothly right away. It sounds like a lot of the parents on here just need to shut up and let the teachers do their jobs rather than complain on here. If wilkes truly is struggling then we need to help the teachers teach. Instead of looking at what other schools are doing maybe we should focus on what has worked at this school for so long and support our teachers.

I would say Average to be honest..We are ex Military and we have seen many schools any many states...its not ABOVE or Below. The Classes do have to many children in them. The should be given a TA if they are going to run this size of a class so that all the children get the help they need, and the watchful eye that is needed because kids can be mean and one of mine was picked on by other students. Teachers are amazing there but they need HELP especially with the class sizes they are given.

My son is in the multi-age program at Wilkes and I couldn't be more impressed. His teachers are fantastic, the work is challenging, and his needs both academic and social-emotional are addressed. I am in the classroom volunteering multiple times a week and see teacher sin action all the time. They are fantastic, the administration is wonderful and how the curriculum is implemented is impressive.

Wilkes, BI School District and the Bainbridge Island Community is incredible in so many ways. I always tell people I love living here because everyone here is focused on the right things in life. Raising well rounded children that are educated, loving, and want to give back to their community. I am sad to say because of work we are moving out of state. I was encouraged to use this site to look at schools but to not pay attention to the parent reviews. This advice came from a parent/school psychologist that works in the state we are moving to. After seeing these negative reviews toward a school that both of my children have gone through and loved! I now understand why the school psychologist suggested I skip this part of the site. Wilkes couldn't be a more nurturing environment where children thrive!

I came in expecting a lot given all the talk about the district schools and its state ranking. The education and standards are average and the equivalent of checking the state boxes. Nothing impresses me as outstanding. This year has really been a disappointment with teachers who are marginal, disorganized, or just in it because they get a long summer vacation.
