Westside Elementary School4

This is an excellent school, definitely well-rounded, as each subject receives plenty of attention. Test scores reflect it as well. The teachers are all caring and very good at what they do. The office staff is very personal and friendly. Parents are involved in many areas. The administration is always available. I have two children attend this school and they both have thrived.
Westside has been a prayer answered for our special needs child. Dixie Branscumb(speech) has been a major force in getting the help our special needs kid needed. The school has surprisingly been very proactive in giving our child a wonderful learning environment.
This is a great school! I have 2 kids who have been in this school from K-4. Still have 1 right now in the school! Would not change. All of the staff have always been very good with my children. I would highly recommend this school anytime!
Being a parent of a child who will be attending kindergarten there, I am now apprehensive about sending him to this school because of the previous review that I read. Come on, if a child is on honor roll they are more than likely doing their best already and should not be reprimanded for not 'waxing exellence.' They are kids, not Navy Seals.
If I could I would move my kids to another school in Searcy. They pile on homework and make the kids do work during inside recess and then tell the kids they need to see more out of them when that child is on A honor roll. I think the staff could use alot of improvement and if another parent has a problem I wish them luck in getting it resolved. I have had 3 kids in this school and none of them were/are happy going to school there. There isnt any title one teachers because the government wont send funds due to all the wealthy kids that attend there.
