Both the Principal and the Assistant Principal at WES are awesome. Each time that I have had a problem they have addressed it properly The teachers are awesome and my kids love this school. The sports aren't all that great but this school is more academically focused then athletically focused. Its grreattt to be a bearcat!

They really focus on all the students and try to reach them at their ability level and increase their academics as well as social and emotional skills.

I am very frustrated with WES. Not willing to go a little out of their way to help a child.
