2013-2014 brought SLW K-8 the best principal in the county! Students, parents, teachers and staff are smiling once again.

St. Lucie West K-8 is awesome! It is the best that I have seen of all of the Elementary schools in the county. My daughter transferred from a charter school that had major issues with indiscipline and a teacher from hell. Soon after transferring to St Lucie West K-8, her new teacher recognized her academic abilities and sent her to an advance reading class.....She is also student of the month and is happy to have a teacher who actually cares about children....No more beatings and kicks from other kids.....and a chance to focus on learning in an environment conducive to learning.

The school is good, and now I think my kids are more safe after the instalation of the fence around some parts of the school that were not closed. The staff on the front office need to be more friendlly (except for one woman). The teachers are very receptive to parents, helping in share solutions to improve student learn capacity.

HORRIBLE!!!! DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO THIS SCHOOL!!! The staff is rude, the principal speaks down to parents and is rude and makes snide remarks about other parents behind their backs.

i think wast gate k-8 is the best school in the area. ive never seen a better school. the principal is terrific. ha goes into the classrooms and interacts with the kids. and the teacher! they like to keep the students happy. they teach and give assignments but they have fun too!

The staff needs some training on how to be more professional. I would understand someone had a bad day but EVERYONE the same day and not just one day multiple times. Also what is the point on checking ID if they don't even look at the picture

So disappointed. Gives the outward appearance of greatness, not a lot of substance, especially for elementary kids. No clubs or interesting resource classes. The administration is unfriendly to parents and my kids never even saw the principal/vp all year long. Beware if your child is special needs- find somewhere else to go!

My children are new to the school and I can't say that it's a bad school nor can I say that it's great. They have some excellent teachers and staff but some of the policies need some work. For example the dress code is enforced depending on staff's feeling and not across the board. Get a grip. Giving lunch detentions for not wearing a belt? While other things are permitted. Also some of the office staff don't know the meaning of being professional. Try setting the example. I guess you can't have a perfect school.

This school is the best. The teachers are great. And I love that my child will get to be here for middle school and we dont have to worry about finding another great school. I have no complaints.

This school is awesome! The teachers and administrative staff are all kind and caring. My child loves SLW and is thriving, which is all any parent could ask for!
