My school is full of caring teachers who show true concern for my children. They contact me when there is a concern and help me decide how to best help my children. I appreciate the attempt to call when there is a concern or just to inform me of information about my children and the progress they are making.

My son has been going to West Morgan and it is great. They have some of the top test scores in Alabama and great teachers. Also its football and volleyball programs are some of the top in the south.
