They don't give too much homework. My son does a lot of extra curriculum activities and he is able to complete all his homework and still review.

They try to ensure kids have a fun and dynamic learning environment. The school is also partners with UM so they take trip to the UM campus. This encourages children to want to go to college.

They make sure to take appropriate steps to assure every kid is able to speak their minds. As well as allowing them to explain their actions.

I have 2 kids at west lab and they love it. The teachers are great, the school is small and welcoming to parents. The after school programs are fantastic. They have sports, code, lego, chess, drama, dance etc. I feel very lucky to be able to send my kids here.

My happy child has been there for 2 years now, great fit. The teachers challenge the kids and expose them to the world. I read these comments and sit here is dismay wondering who and what is being spoken of here. The education being taught here is second to none. If you do your work, and rise to the challenge of putting in the time with the homework, it all works out. The After School Classes like Basketball, Soccer, Violin, Tennis, Programing code, Dance, are great for the kids to be exposed to. Life is a competitive environment, here at West Lab, you learn to perform! Don't base your research on these online opinions, interview a parent who's child is always on the Honor Role. (Many to choose from.) Good Luck
