I loved this school. The teachers were amazing (I had children in K and in 1st). The yard duty staff was always welcoming and attentive. We are a military family here for a year and the school was great with our needs! A+ The only thing I didn't like was the schools use of Spanish.

My children have gone to this school for 3 years, during this time I have seen things that are completley unexecptable, the teachers just dont care any more and I feel it is an unsafe canbus, I am very concered about the future of the students that attend this school, there have been more & more violance but yet nothing is being done to stop or atleast address these issues? This is has gottten out of control! I am sick and tired of getting no respose from admin regarding the falling test scores and the increase of extreme behavior.How is this school ever gonna improve when the issues are not even reconized to be dealt with? This year i have enrolled all three of my children in tracy schools where i have heard nothing but praise and reveiwed there rising teast scores they have controled there behavoir issuces why cant this district do the same? Its sad that i can't relay on my local school disrict to provide a prober and more importanley a safe education

As far as the academic programs go, I feel that the schools don't challenge the students enough.I think the art and music is wonderful but I'm highly disappointed that the sports were cut.The parent involvement is good and I have no problems with that.I am a bit feel concerned about my daughters math grade because she as good A's in everything but math?

Mixed feelings. I think the special Ed department is lacking. Too difficult to get assistance for children requiring special education services, but I think that's the entire district, not just the school. Compared to other schools, like Joshua Cowell, GW is wonderful. The yard duties at GW are great, friendly, and know most of the kids by name.

I have had mixed experiences with GW school. The principal has made noticable effort to listen to the students and parents this year and I applaud her for that. I on the other hand have some severe reservations about the VP being she has come from another district with some history that is not to be proud of. Academics are falling into a level of uncertainty. There are some teachers who believe group punishment is proper, so they punish all the good kids for what the few bad have done. The band program needs a new teacher. He is lazy and does not follow through with his students. PTP is beyond repair and only benefits the few whom they feel like giving to. PTP needs to become a PTA and monitored by the state. MUSD you know what I am talking about. This school needs help.

Ok. I don't know what Golden West School the first review was on, but I see a way different picture! There are yard duties, who are always talking to each other and not watching the kids. The kids have foul mouths and no respect. There are a few good teachers who I think are wonderful the rest I would not trust with my dog. The cafeteria cannot heat food up properly nor keep it clean. Bathrooms smell like outhouses and the playground has huge cracks where kids fall all the time. Administration will not act on things unless you threaten to take it to the district office. Dont bring your kids here! You'll regret it just like I have.

This place is great! The principals are nice, the teachers are the best I know when it comes to teaching and yet they are still really fun to be with. The activities are fun and help kids learn a lot! Every class in k-6 has a parent or 2 help out in the classroom for about an hour. Everywhere you look there is a yard-dutyright there. So if something happens, they are right there. Finally, this is the best school for your kids, the atmosphere is wonderful and everybody is nice. Wake up and take your kid to Golden West Elementary School!
