This is a great school. I will recommend this school to anyone. I have three kids, 2 completed Westchester and 1 did not because we had to move. Teachers such as Amber Dowling are not given much credit for the work they do with our kids all day long 5 days a week. My son is shy, hard working and very conscientious of his peers, at any time he was not past over for being too quiet instead Ms Dowling found a way to get him to open up. I see many reviews about bullying and I have a zero tolerance for such behavior, and my heart goes out to such parents because my youngest daughter experience such behavior and I was able to stop it with the help of her teacher Ms. Hand who is another amazing teacher, and have never had another incident with any of my children. Teachers like Ms. Dowling we must say thanks for their dedication and the ability to keep there class engage and work with students of all temperament . Ms.Dowling, my son still misses you and we hope we find another teacher like you. Please keep watching out for all our kids . You are very much appreciated. You the teachers are what make a great school. Keep enriching our children's mind.
Westchester is a great neigborhood school! My son is going in to 2nd grade, and we couldn't be happier with our experiences thus far. Principal Gerraine is open to new ideas and very open and friendly with parents. The school does not rest on its "A" they are always trying to improve. There is a small group of teachers that are very active with the PTA which is nice!
My daughter Gianna goes to Westchester at Coral Springs and she loves it she has had great teachers. We have only two years in this state and are primary language is Latin and my daughter know to read and write in English almost every word and her speaking is amassing and I cant leave out the good security, organization and care for these kids the school has. This has to do a lot with the principal, she is a 100% involve each day I see her and in every activity" is nice to have some one that dedicates her self to are kids". I am very happy and my little girl loves it!

Westchester Elementary is the Best Elementary if you want your kids to feel happy and comfortable with Learning.
my family and i moved to florida last year from california, i was a little nervous at first about my daughter entering a new school didnt really know what to expect. She was in kinder and got mrs. garg. i must say she was great with my daughter in three weeks she learned to read, add and subtract she worked so patiently with her. Now shes in 1st grad with mrs. smith and she's also amazing. the teachers communicate with the parents all the time. i must say this schools is the best.
I love the Gifted Program! My daughter is a gifted student and at Westchester Elementary she receives all the help she needs to develop her skills. The program focuses on the kids abilities and promotes their development. Teachers are great and the staff is very kind. They also have a very good after school program. Way to go, Westchester Elementary!
Westchester has some excellent teachers and a wonderful Principal 'Mr. LeFevre' that really care about the kids academic progress and safety. The PTA is large and very involved and is able to supply additional resources for the students. Not to mention the school is situated in nice area and is adjacent to a middle and high school. I am grateful to have had two excellent, caring, pleasant and nurturing teachers for my son thus far.

Westchester is a terrific school. We moved from PA this year and my son started K here - Mrs. Driscoll is incredible and the kids are doing advance work in reading and math. I am very happy with everyone at the school. The after care program is also very good and they are very security focused -- even grandparents have to show their ID when picking up the kids. Have to love that. My son is so so happy here.
Love the school. I have 2 kids there and couldn't be happier. Teachers are very accessible to parents and the kids are taught to be good citizens as well as good students!
My daughter goes to Westchester and she loves it. We moved here in April so she was the new kid but they made her feel welcome. She has learned so much more here than she did at her old school in MA.
Westchester is the greatest. In our 5 years there we have not had any real problems or concerns. The teachers have been excellent, the principal very visible and involved and the remainder of the staff is always pleasant and helpful. I can't even think of any changes I would recommend!
My child had an excellent education at Westchester in grades K-5. The teachers and staff were all very dedicated and friendly. My daughter still talks about Mr. Saban 4 years later.
My child has had the opportunity to be a part of Westchester Elementary since Kindergarten. It has been a positive experience from day one. The teachers care about the well being of the children and invite parent participation on many levels. My child is prospering.
Best school I've seen in FL. Great teachers, environment, education, etc. Is everything a parent wish from a public school.
I love Westchester! The teachers really are able to help the students learn while keeping parents informed. The principal is very friendly and helpful. I would reccommened this school.
Westerchester is a wonderful school. The principal is very engaged with the children, he is caring and firm at the same time. The teachers, I can't say enough, my son is going into fifth grade and we have had a wonderful year. The only thing that I can see needs improvement is, some new items for recess, balls etc.
