I recommend not putting your kids in this school. Teachers lack basic communication skills and bullying is a problem whether its a district policy or not, it constantly occurs at Western Peaks. Teachers can barely maintain doing their basic job duties that is expected of them and if you complain about a teacher, the principal, Stacy Brown, will defend the teacher every time and then the teachers all gossip to each other in front of students expressing their frustration about a parent 'tattling' on them (their words) and so it only causes problems for the kids. They are then known to have parents that complain so watch out if you get those kids in your class. There are sooo many parents that were given no choice but to change schools mid way through the year. Their solution is to get rid of the problem by switching schools instead of trying to fix it, even the Director of Student Services, Karen Winterstein tried to get us to switch. I refuse to pull my kids from all their friends just because the teachers want to be bullies. No wonder the school doesn't care about bullies. I would suggest putting your kids in a charter or private school before sending them here.
