My school is great because all the staff that works at this school actually care about the kids. Not only do they all (from front office to every teacher and custodian) know all the kids by their names, they take the time to talk to our kids to help them beyond academics. We see each other in town and we say hello and ask how they are doing? They make the difference, because everything is not black and white, they understand difficulties that families are going through and they go out of their way to help out in a discrete way. I have never had an experience where a teacher was negative towards a student, and i used to be a volunteer and eventually a substitute for awhile. So I got to see the inside of things. I have to say, that we are very priveledged to have the staff that we have at our school. My son has been at this school since Kindergarden and he is in 5th grade, we were struggling to keep our home and the only reason I kept on trying to save our house is because I did not want my son to have to change schools. When he was in 2nd grade I had to temporarily move to another county for 6 months. What a nightmare! No comparison is so many levels! We are fortunate!

My children have attended this school for the last four years, and, including this upcoming year, will have attended every grade from K through 8th. The school was relatively new when we first started, and had to work through some growing pains and staff issues. The quality of the teaching staff and leadership has continued to improve as time has passed. Most of the teaching staff has remained unchanged. The school reached the pinnacle of excellence achieving an A rating from the State for the 08-09 school year. I have recommended this school to many friends and newcomers to our town. It really is something to be proud of.

My daughter started Kindergarten at West Glades this year and I couldn't be happier with what I have seen. The teachers and the staff are all very passionate about what they do. When we go to events at the school all the teachers and staff members that we see know my childs name. I attend PTO meetings and my only complaint about the school is that more parents need to come and help improve the school.

Bad choice. Teaching and focusing in academics and encouraging self-esteem self respect in children is not a priority. Some good teachers around, but for the most, lack patience, passion and a 6th sense to deal with children. Watch out if your kids are picked on and tracking forms sent out on a roll!

Hello my name is Tammy and my 2 children go to West Glades School 1st and 2nd. My kids love it their. The teachers really try their best to teach them. They are very good at what they do. They give me reports on what they are having trouble with in school. I wish I had this kind of school and teachers when I was young.
