My daughter has been attending this school for 2 yrs now. It seems that every month there is a NEW enforced school rule. Now even the 'Pods' are making their own rules. The dress code for this year was decided by someone who must not shop anywhere. Nothing with plaid?No plaid shoes? No white pants? Almost every polo I found has some sort of logo on it! No logos are allowed. I was told at the end of the year that only solid colors would be allowed,now you CANT wear bottoms that are yellow,pink,baby blue,purple ???
My kids have attended several different schools in PSL because lets face it this area doesn't have the best schools. This is a very good school. I will leave my kids in this school until they hit high school.
West Gate is the best school in the entire world. Thank you Mr. Cranmer for keeping the school in order
Most of the teachers and other employers are way to scrict on us students. They wont let us be kids at all. They expect us to act like we've all matured into adults and they act like they dont know what its like to be a kid. The employers are to scrict on the dress code as well, I forgot a belt one day because i woke up late and didnt think about a belt at the moment i never forget my belt or any of the dress code polocies and i got a dress code violation when it was my first forgetting a belt. The new dress code, they must think our parents are rich and can go buying us a whole new wardworbe for school. The school NEVER lets us get our word in before they go writing us up, i dont like the school.
The new dress code is totally suppressing the student s freedom of expression and there are hardly any after school programs, the food is horrible and hair can found in it, and there are hardly any elective classes for our children to attend. America was suppose to allow all of its people to be able to express themselves, whether they express good or bad ideas, it is ultimately up to the people who follow these ideas and not the school boards.
We are very happy with the entire school setting. My son's teacher has always been available whenever I had questions and she really encourages reading.
My daughter has been going here, going on two years. She has wonderful teachers that make learning fun, and challenging. They have much more in the way of computers and tech than her last school did. The principal and his staff are willing to help if a problem ever arises.
My son is a student at this school, for both 7th and 8th grade. I found both school year to be very disappointing. The students hardly received homework assignments, students were not given text books to take home because the school said they did not have enough for each child. Our kids deserve better than what's being offered to them.
My family moved here from New York recently and have been more than impressed with this school overall . My daughter is getting a quality education in a well organized ,professional environment . My wife & I couldn't be happier ! Keep up the good work! Go Mustangs! The Caltabiano Family
This school is outstanding! The activities are there for those who seek them. The teachers are positive and the staff are friendly. Music program is the best!
I'm currently a student at West Gate and I must say this school is just disappointing. The teachers are rude and the way the school tryies to inforce the rules doesn't work.
Im a student of West Gate K-8 and i love the school, it's great! There are a lot of activities, and there are sports. Its a great school. i recommend it. its my favorite school, and it has a lot of technology
My son went there last year and had an excellent teacher - one of the best. School does not offer any after school programs, sports, etc.
We can't say enough about this school. We love it! My husband and I are very happy with the teachers, principal and all the activities that Westgate provides.
This is an excellent school. The quality of the teachers are excellent.
