I graduated from West Fork and went there most of my schooling years. I hated this school! The teachers are not as helpful as they should have been. I don't feel like I graduated knowing what I should have. Now some teachers were great, but generally speaking, they were horrible teachers. Didn't help when you asked for it, wasn't clear, just didn't care! I will not send my children to this school!

As a past student of West Fork myself, I think that it is a wonderful school. I went to several different schools before I started going to West Fork. And I loved every bit of my years at West Fork. The teachers really spend time to work with the children. I live in a different school district and my children go to West Fork. Both of my children make straight A's.

I believe West Fork Elementary is a great school. The leadership of the principal is top notch.

This school caters to bringing the lowest students up which wouldn't be a bad thing if they bothered to teach the students who are average and above. They have no programs available or even a way of testing students who ae above their grade level. The Principal fears confrontation with parents and students alike. He tells you what you want to hear then forgets you exist as soon as your gone. The teachers do the best they can under the circumstances but the good ones appear to be looking for new jobs. I'm moving to get out of the district and i know several parents looking into homeschooling because of this school.
