Our child is a very active, very intelligent 2nd grader at Westside Christian School. There were certainly issues in public school, and even in another private school, that finally lead us to this school. The teachers and staff at the other schools were excellent, but the classes were just too big and we wanted a school that would nurture our child's spiritual growth as well. We found it! We couldn't be happier with Westside Christian School and praise God for bringing such devoted, caring people together there to teach our children.

I had concerns to start the year about the change in leadership. These concerns have proven unfounded. The elementary school improved when the teachers focused on subjects and not grade levels alone. My daughter has benefited because the teachers pull students in groups to work with advanced students so they are given work that challenges them.

The teachers at Westside go above and beyond to teach the students. They care about the students needs academically and emotionally, as well as spiritually. There are weekley activities for the students to get involved with. The new leapdership is refreshing this years. A few new and improved rules. More academically challenging. Better discipline. They work hard at gettining to know the students strengths and weaknesses so they can work on both. For the parent that thinks the PhD principle was better, I disagree. The new leadership has a better backbone. The teachers are excellent with curriculum and they work with the Sunshine States Standards to ensure that our chldren will be ready for college. The teachers have vision and the pastor supports his teachers.

This is a great school for the money. Be involved in the education of your children by teaming up with the teachers, this brings great results. No school can compensate fully for parents who think education is a schools job. The school needs to do more to increase enrollment to stay open. The future looks in flux due to the pastor pushing out the principle that had a PhD and helped found the school. Positives: Christ-centered Challenging curriculum Selfless teachers Low cost model Negatives: Leadership void Vision is lacking

Westside Christian School in Largo, Fl is a great school! Having around 80 students from Kindergarten through 12th grade gives the teachers alot of "one - on - one" time with each one. The Administrator's door is always open for students and parents alike. Great care is taken to ensure a positive and caring learning environment for the students. I highly recommend Westside to any parent!

Westside teachers really care about the students. There is good communication between the parents and teachers. Moving my kids from public school to westside was the best choice I could have made for them.

We take every child's learning style into account. Granted, we cannot help every student, but we will work with that student to reach their goals. With an average teacher student ratio of 1 per 10, we can see exactly what each child needs.

I thank God for this school. The kids there are great. The students always make NEW students feel welcome. My daughter is challenged and encouraged by the teachers, because they believe in her ability to thrive.

This school is different from many other private schools in that they try to do a lot of "big school things" for the kids. Proms, pep rallys, shows and fundraisers are all a part of the culture there... plus the small school sense of belonging and being cared for. My son talks about how he knows the teachers and especially the principal have his best interest in mind. For the parent who said the curriculuum was too hard, I'm not sure where that would come from. School work is meant to be challenging and they are not giving free grades away, even to those with learning issues, but they are there to provide one on one work and build confidence so that students will learn. This way they know they did it which also instills a sense of pride. We love Westside!

We moved our son from public school to Westside two years ago, when he was starting 4th grade, and it was the best thing we could have ever done for him. The smaller class sizes, individualized attention and Christian values have done wonders for his attitude and self-esteem. We are very happy to have found this school.
