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.
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.
The staff really care about children's education and well being, my children are thriving at this school. I like this school so much, as a dad, I even volunteer there 3-4 days a week. This a great school.
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!
