I loved going to school in the Wentzville School District. The teachers are all very welcoming, and are there to assist you in so many ways possible. I have made very strong connections with most of my teachers while being a student in the Wentzville School District and believe that any upcoming students will have the same experience! The sports are very competitive and I loved that about this district. Teams were always very well put together, and based upon skill and grades/ how well students were doing in school. The administrative staff is full of kind people who are always there to help. Most students would even say they've formed bonds with some of the administrative staff. Overall, the Wentzville School District is warm and welcoming and a great place to attend school.

I feel that there were some extremely qualified teachers, and I was able to learn a lot from them, but there were many that it was clear they didn't care about their job or teaching. It made it difficult to understand what they were trying to teach, and it was aggravating when some of them only assigned busywork. I think there are only teachers on two opposite ends of the spectrum: they are either outstanding or they are some of the worst. There have even been petitions begun by students to have teachers more closely evaluated because of how poor their performance was. But I only ran into a few of these teachers. Overall my high school experience was positive and memorable, there were teachers that really cared, and being a part of the activities at the school and going to events made an impact. There were so many different ways to get involved, and those who were involved in sports or clubs were always beautifully passionate about what they were doing.
As a parent of students attending Crossroads Elementary School, we have had a very positive experience. Our school leaders, teachers and support staff are amazing!
