My daughter has been going to WPA since it opened. I am continually impressed with the quality of education she receives. Whether it was explaining a venn diagram in Kindgarten or doing multiplication concepts in first grade, she is always given new and exciting things to learn. WPA has small classes which really allows the teachers to spend more time with kids and specialize the curriculum for all learners. I would highly recommend West Pioneer Academy.

My daughter has only been at West Pioneer Academy for a month now and I know this is the school for us. We recently made the switch from another private school because this school offers individual learning so every child can learn without being behind in a subject or kept from going ahead. My daughter had an active IEP for her speech since she was in pre-k. Now being in second grade she still needs a little one on one and this school can provide that to her and all their students because of their small class sizes.

If you are looking for more than public education for your child, take a look at West Pioneer Academy (WPA). My son has attended WPA since it opened in June 2012 and we are very pleased with the quality of his education in 3rd and now 4th grade. WPA offers small classes, great teachers, before and after school care, organic gardening, a horse on campus, art class, music class, and optional music lessons and it s all onsite! Ms. Lesley keeps my son challenged in the classroom and keeps things interesting on top of it. How many other 4th grade kids get to dissect a squid? Check out their website, call for a tour, and find out how reasonable the rates can be for private school!

My son has attended West Pioneer Academy since it opened. The teachers are AWESOME and so encouraging! Mrs. Soto is so sweet and she always takes time to make sure that her students are learning, enjoying what they are doing and providing multiple opportunities to assist her students. My son was very behind in math coming into West Pioneer and in a short amount of time she brought him right back up to speed! If you're looking for a great school that fosters quality academics and will encourage your child, West Pioneer is DEFINATELY the place to be! I can't say enough good about this school! Mr. B. the music teacher totally ROCKS and the horse arena, garden, and grounds are all part of the charm that this school offers! I'm so grateful to have my son at West Pioneer. Finally a school that exhibits everything we were looking for and more!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
