West Sedona School is in the process of getting their STEM Accreditation from the state of Arizona. Parents and staff feel that this is an important focus in 21st century education. Continuous improvements are being made and the school is attempting to address the historical negative comments. Many of the reviews are 7 years old, and it is important to note that this is not the situation at this time. Community support and involvement is an important aspect for a successful school - so why not get involved?

Although opinions seem to vary about WSS, I have always been pleased with the outcome of each school year. WSS is located in a small community, where everyone knows everyone's business, but not all parents choose to get involved with their child's education. However, education is not only the responsibility of the teachers, but also the parents. I have heard many parents make complaints about teachers, that did not choose to do their part at home. I believe Dr. Hirsch feels passionately about her students and the school, and the teachers (at least those who have been there many years) are all devoted and well-qualified. Everyone works very hard to give my child a good education. I have been grateful to have my daughter educated at this school for the last 5 years (K-4th grade; currently enrolled). Thank you!

This school is alright. The staff is focused more on behavior than the academics. The school takes little situations and makes them a really big deal. This schools education is really low even one of the teachers said that to the children. Most of the staff picks out kids with minor behavior problems and watches them closely not focusing on the other children's behavior. I don't want to be mean but this school has more Mexicans that were raised up with lower education so this school has to slow down there learning because of that. I could go on about how bad the sports, phys ed, computer and lunch is horrible but I will let you research that for yourself. If you're looking for better academics, sports, special programs, and after school programs I would advise you to look towards other schools such as C.M.S. C.E.S. Big Park or even Clarkdale/Jerome elementary just not west sedona school.
