Our daughter is in Kinder at West View and we love this school! The Kinder program is the only one that is full day and I can clearly see the impact that it has had on her education. The quality of teaching is high and the children at this school are very happy to be there. I can honestly say that this has been the best choice we made for a healthy, nurturing and quality education for our child.

I have taught at this school for the past 7 years and I can honestly say that there is no other school that is a caring, nurturing, and more family-like than West View. It a small, community school where everyone treats each other like family. It is a great place to teach and a great place to learn.

My daughter is only in Kinder however, Westview's Kinder program has made an impressive impression. The school has the only full day Kinder program in the city and the curriculum is wonderful. The students have been studying the basics like letter and number recognition, but they also work on reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. The teacher's and staff show interest and concern when interacting with our children and the communication is constant. My daughter as well as myself are very happy with Westview's performance.

I was recently a Student Teacher in a first grade classroom at this school. The entire staff and faculty, including janitorial staff, and even the crossing guards were personable and extremely helpful. I learned so much from each of the teachers who are of extreme high caliber. The academic goals and standards are amazing, especially within the Special Education Program. I have never visited, no do I feel I ever will visit another school quite like Westview.

This is my sons first year at westview, he is in kindergarden and I love what his teacher is teaching him. I really like the school my son is leaning a lot from his class. One of the things that I really liked about the school was that the kinder classes are full day.

staff and teachers are unbelievable. every person employed at the school, even down to the crossing guard, genuinely cares about every single kid. awesome 'family' atmosphere

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
