Ware Elementary is situated on 6795 Thomas Ave. We are one of the largest schools on post with 550 to 750 students. This year we anticipate enrollment will change as Picerne housing development continues to grow on McClellan Place. It is always exciting to have more Ware Bears.
Ware has received various recognitions for its outstanding academic performance by their students. Staff at Ware believe we only have one opportunity each year to effect a students learning. It is up to us to make sure the each student gets what he needs to be successful. So don't be surprised if a teacher calls you and says," Johnny is doing wonderful. I'd like to set up a plan so that he can improve even more."
Ware staff is hard at work moving to the Common Core Standards. This requires new ways of thinking, teaching and learning. However we believe once we work through the changes your children will benefit from the common standards that will be implemented throughout the 50 states. No more should you run into, "My old school didn't expect them to learn multiplication in 3rd grade so my student is behind." We are also ALL measuring reading using LEXILES. This should help with the understanding of student reading skills.
If you EVER have questions please call, 785-717-4600. Our secretaries: Norma, Olga, Chris and Karla will be glad to assist you. They may not have all the answers but they will find out.
