Westgate Community School 5

Westgate has been an excellent match for my children. I love that the school has needs based learning so that my children can learn and grow based on how they are performing. If they are exceeding grade level in a subject, there is no cap as to how far above grade level they can work. There are groups for all levels and skills. My children are challenged and I love that.

Amount of homework: Just right

There is no homework at this school unless something is not completed in class. This is done because studies consistently show homework does not increase learning--but does increase stress at home. Plus, since the work does not come home, there is no temptation from parents to overly interfere or take over.

Yes. The students are responsible for getting their work done and getting it done well.

My kids have done great at Westgate. They have improved so much each year they are there. I love the flexibility of the school and the willingness to teach to each kid's needs. I have loved it.

All the teachers I have had have been exceptional. Especially Ms. Hamilton who my kids have had for four years (with two more to go).

My son only has homework when he doesn't complete his work in class or needs to improve upon his work. No more fights about homework!

When my son started at Westgate in the 4th grade, he hated school and seriously struggled with writing. Now, in the 7th grade, his writing is advanced for his grade and he LOVES school. He is so excited for an opportunity to go to the high school and earn an associates at Front Range Community College! Thank you Westgate for making my son's education enjoyable and worth while!
