Teachers of the lower grades don't seem to think out of the box. They need to look from the child's point of view. Lot of favoritism.

The two ladies in the front office are poor first impressions for this school. Biting and bitter come to mind to describe them.


Posted September 23, 2013

With two kiddos now in this school, I have nothing but positive comments. The teachers have been great, the front office and administrative staff are great. The PTA and its continual support of the school are impressive. There is a good support network, and as a parent I feel included and involved. Where I have had questions, someone (teacher, staff, PTA) has been able to answer me. The most important part? My kids LOVE LOVE LOVE their school.

We had an awesome experience at Westpark. My daughter has a learning disorder and we were told that Westpark had a wonderful program by an educational therapist. We switched schools and we definitely made the right decision. My daughter loved her teachers and classmates. She learned the skill she needed to use to be successful.

The experience that we had at Westpark was good for the most part. The teachers that my son had were very good. The office staff is extremely rude. The principal was rude to me several times. However, when I approached her with a problem my son was having with bullying, she did resolve it. The PTA is made up of very dedicated parents. Overall, it is a good school. I don't have any major complaints about the academics.

As a past student here (I am in my second year of college now), grades 2-6, I have to say that this school did a very good job at preparing its students for middleschool. The teachers were wonderful and really did care about the wellfare of the students. However I have to agree with the other comments, the front staff is very rude and unwelcoming to when I come in to help out past teachers.

Love the new Principal, she shows great leadership and very approachable to the parents. She has implemented new programs, which are very helpful to the students.

I agree with previous reviewers who report that the principal is unapproachable and defensive. I also find that the special education program needs stronger leadership and more qualified/experienced teachers and therapists.

My child has been at Westpark for 4 years now. I am extremely impressed with everything about Westpark. This school is top notch in everyway. The teachers are committed. The academic programs are rigorous, and the after school activities and programs are second to none. This is a year round school also which we really love. Students still get plenty of time off, but they avoid having that long 3 month brain drain that comes with traditional summer vacations. The other thing is that parents have to make a conscious decision to send their kids to Westpark. Consequently these are parents that are very concerned with and value education. Their kids aren't going to Westpark by default based on where they live (as with most schools.) It gives it kind of a 'private school' feel. it has very high expectations, yet it is nurturing and supportive too. Westpark is great.

I totally disagree with the comment from 1/29/08. Westpark is very rigorous and strong. Just look at how well prepared the students are for middle and high school. Westpark students excel when they leave the school. That speaks volumes for how strong they are.

I have children attending this school. The front office staff are not very nice. Not only do they don't show any appreciation of the parents volunteers (making their job easier by helping the teachers, which alleviate some of their duties, but they make remarks that are unnecessary, and can discourage parents from helping out. If they don't know the courteous way in dealing with parents, they shouldn't be up in the front office.

all teachers and spec ed teachers are the best. my grandson had problems getting along in kindergarden as we found out from special care and individual attn he was very self conscience. He is a lot bigger and taller than the other students. this school and the spec ed teachers totally helped him overcome this little problem. now he is in 3rd grade and loves his teacher and the students.


Posted June 3, 2009

My son was sent to Westpark because he needed special attention in the classroom. Slowly but surely, he has gotten less and less attention and resources. The teachers appear to be helpful at his IEP, but then do not follow through in the classroom. Furthermore, there is minimal communication back to the parents when there is a problem in the classroom.

We love this school and find the quality of the teaching very high. I want to say that the principal is the best - she's a great leader, approachable, fair and extremely helpful. She's great!

Loved this school!! The principal was fantastic and the teachers were great! My child has a learning disorder and the staff at this school went above and beyond to help us!! Sometimes the reason the academics aren't through the roof is because they are focusing on the kids and not on the 'scores'. I would recommend this school to anyone!

We have been at this school for 7 years now. We started as a kindergardner. The School is great. The teachers are wonderful. The front staff have been rude from day one and still are rude, never a smile, a hello and it feels like we are bothering them. This gives the school a bad impression. When you first walk in, you are treated w/ their rudeness. They on and on among themselves and never bother to help us. I hate going to the front and think we really need to get some better caring staff. After 7 years I wiill miss the school but have had enough of these rude people . And I am glad I dont have to see them next year.

Posted November 29, 2008

I happen to disagree with the review dated January 29, 2008. The academic programs are very strong (unless you have a genius who does not belong there or you think highly/expect a lot of your kid) and the teachers are very demanding (in a good way) in terms of academic performance from the kids based on the amount of homework they assign to them regularly. However, I do happen to agree with the review dated August 23, 2007 that the front staff can be very rude. No smiles on their face and they definitely take their job for granted. They talk to you as if you are bothering them. They definitely need some mentoring and if it does not work, give them early retirement! Overall, the school is great and some of the teachers are just fabulous. Our kid gets a lot of attention and is very happy being there.

This school is not a best choice because academically it is not strong.

Best school ever! good in learning and has good activities!


Posted August 16, 2007

My daughter had a teacher who didn't give her any attention. I switched my daughter to another school in the same district. There the kids are way ahead academically. This makes me think that Westpark probably wasn't the best choice....sad to say!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
